Lifelong Learning

Classical & Medieval

Greek, Ancient

 

What can I say, I really like Classical Greek.  It's got challenging grammar and weird phonology.  What more can a linguist ask for?  It has gotten me into a little bit of trouble though... but my goal, really, is to someday be able to read it like literature, for fun, instead of  looking up every third word. 

I've returned to school and dove right back into Greek, and while there are still gaps in my memory after being away so long, it's come back really fast.  It will be a while before I can squeeze in another Greek class.  Learning vocabulary is the big thing, really, because when you forget stuff, reading becomes time consuming looking up all the words, so I think one of the things I am going to try to do here on this site is build a Visual Dictionary to help me remember vocab.  Expect that to get started as soon as I get my head above water.

The links I've included below are great, and most of them I've found extremely useful.  They are on both the Ancient Greek language, and also culture.  In the right margin, I will also add links to papers I've written on the Ancient Greek language.  If I accumulate too many translations, I'll add a page just for that.

I'm also very interested in Greek culture and history.  This shows up in my interest in the histories of mathematics and science.  Also see the right margin.

"xanthe" in the Hymn to Demeter (I'll accept the criticism I got for faulty citations, but not so bad for my first classics paper in a dozen years.  However, once again, a 5-page paper just can't do the topic justice.)
