Evan, ἠ Ἑλληνικός σκολιῶς μανθάνω ἔτος τόδ' ἤδη εἴκοσι. Μὴ δὴ ἐντεῖλη με κατὰ τὸ ὀρθὸν ποιεῖν! Ἔχω ἔγω ἐμπειρία! Ἔτος εἰς ἔτος μανθάνω ἡ γλῶττα ἀνακριβώς! Ὅτι μὰλιστα ἔστιν ἐμπειρία!
Evan, for twenty years now I've been learning Greek the wrong way. Don't tell me how to do it right...I have experience! Year after year I have learned the language wrong - now that's experience!
