Creating a Koine book of phrases as a resource for a communicative approach to learning.
Contributors could help in the following ways:
- General: Helping to define the purpose and scope of the book.
Editing: Cleaning up the formatting or tags in the phrasebook file.
Researching: Adding phrases from other online sources, such as Sprechen Sie Attisch
Researching: Looking into primers or other books for good phrases.
Reviewing: Checking over the list for mistakes, natural usage, clarifications.
One time contribution: Add phrases you use in communicative teaching / learning.
Ongoing contribution: Adding phrases that fit the purpose of the book as you encounter them in reading.
The beginnings of a phrasebook and directions for editing it can be found here
If we can get at least 5 contributors by 1 Feb 2012, I will consider the project a "go."
Respond to this post if you are interested.
If we get at least 5, then we would use this same discussion thread to define the purpose and scope of the phrasebook, the deadline for completion, and perhaps assign duties.

Several B-Greek discussion threads have touched on, or directly discussed a phrasebook.
The most relevant was Barry Hofstetter’s post from October 2011* in which he said,
- “In Latin I have a bunch of common classroom statements/questions that I force the students to use, but not so much for Greek…. There's a lot of support for this type of thing for Latin, but practically nothing for Greek. “
