For the Ancient Greek lovers
Today during a review of my contacts on Twitter and I fell onto a blog with lectures about
Ancient Greek literature. There were citations from Ancient Greek texts translated into German and his author also provides audio MP3 files with Erasmian Pronunciation.
Actually , it is not everyday that I talk about Ancient Greek language. After all my opinion is that you should start the study of Greek with Modern Greek (<Νέα Ελληνικά ) , but whatever your priority will be (Ancient, or Koine or Medieval or Modern Greek) you will always be studying the same language.
Many people are interested in Ancient Languages , which means that their priority is more studying that communicating the language. So, if you love Ancient stuff , Latin, Gothic or Sanskrit ..then all these lectures are for you.
On the other hand if are learning Modern Greek – note that Erasmian pronunciation sounds like gibberish to a native Greek speaker – and you would like to communicate what you have already learnt in Greek , then you can have a conversation with me via Skype or any other communication tool you like. Just mail me to glavkosATyahooDOTcom and I will send you my Skype user name.
Till then , you can have a look on the Ancient Greek lectures and learn a pre-Socratic dictum, like:
Πόλεμος πατήρ πάντων
