I like the idea, and this would be reasonably easy to do in HTML on the Web. In fact, it would be a great starting point to doing more interactive software learning tools along the lines of Rosetta Stone, since you need the pictures for that kind of program.
And the good news is that there are a LOT of free pictures on the Internet. So let's have some fun finding pictures and writing simple captions that could be used in Web pages, software, etc. Here's how it works:
- Use a word frequency list to find commonly used words in the New Testament or Hellenistic literature. The First 1000 Words for Koine Greek are not the same as for modern languages - you don't need to know how to say "school bus", you do need to know how to say θεός and Ιησοῦς. The goal is to start with the most frequent words, and work down through the list.
- Use Google Image Search or a similar search engine to find an image that is labelled "free for reuse". We're not doing anything commercial here, so free for commercial reuse is not necesssary.
- Post here with your picture and a caption - or more than one caption, at different levels of complexity. Other people can also step in and offer captions for your picture, or correct your Greek.
- When you post a picture, please say who took the picture, and what the property rights are, so people can safely use the picture.
You can add value to someone else's post by:
- Suggesting additional captions
- Suggesting other images that depict the same thing
- Correcting errors in their Greek (I haven't written much Greek at all, so I expect to be a victim of this!)
Let the games begin!
