Texts and Materials: Balme & Lawall, Athenaze 2 (Oxford 2003) vol. I, &. II (after Spring break)
additional readings and exercises will be provided in handout and online.
The font (Eng. & Greek) is Palatino Linotype (Unicode extended.) **Older material may be found in TekniaGreek (with a free download); that will be converted in the course of the semester. Mac Users may need to adjust Browsers: Safari or Firefox will read this material accurately as Lucida Grande or New Athena Unicode (but only with OS 10.2 or above). Audio files will be provided in mp3 format and may be copied.
This course is the second step toward a basic reading knowledge of classical and koine Greek. In the first semester we learned the main declensions for nouns, adjectives and pronouns, along with the basic present-tense endings for thematic verbs. Now in the second semester we devote ourselves to mastering the other major parts of the Greek verbal system--past, future, and into the subjunctive (leaving perfect and optative for 3rd semester). We shall follow much the same approach: work out with the grammar and vocabulary, and read, read, read!
Keep up your practice in pronunciation,
reading and responding aloud in Greek. Try to master the passages in Athenaze
with greater clarity: these passages are designed to build comprehension and
confidence in reading continuous prose--so that when you turn to read the
unabridged text of New Testament and ancient authors, you can proceed with
As a gauge of that progress, in the latter half of the course we will add
readings from Matthew and the Gospel of John 18-20.
The course grade will be the average of 4 quizzes (50%), homework and in-class exercises (25%); and final exam (25%). See also the general Policy Statement.
You are encouraged to study together, but homework must be your own work: any evidence of copied homework will be treated as plagiarism. Any academic dishonesty will be subject to sanctions (as listed in Student Academic Integrity, p.4) proportionate to the value of the work.
