Greetings from Covington, GA

Post by pdurusau » December 16th, 2015, 10:59 pm

Plutarch reports that Cato didn't start learning Greek until late in life so perhaps there is hope for me as well!

I am studying the TEI markup in Abbott-Smith, ... bott-Smith, both to learn what is there and to look for possible improvements.

As part of that project I have started working through "An Introduction to the Study of New Testament Greek" by James Swetnam (1998). I'm not moving as quickly as I did with recent XQuery drafts but then I have some background with XML.

Looking forward to learning more about both Greek and your community!

Welcome, Patrick! Patrick is a friend I've known since 1995 in the SGML/XML and W3C communities, who did very helpful editing in the current Abbott-Smith lexicon.

"βέλτιον γὰρ ὀψιμαθῆ καλεῖσθαι, ἤ ἀμαθῆ."
Tis better to be called late-learned than unlearned.
