Greek Language (Higher)


Description

The aim of this course is to develop the ability for Ancient History students to read relevant source material in Greek. We will study Reading Greek, Sections 12-17, continuing the survey of Greek grammar, and reading in the RG Text volume increasingly less adapted versions of two famous fourth century BC speeches, Against Neaira and Demosthenes 47 (Against Mnesiboulos and Euergos), concentrating on developing the ability to translate Greek into English, understand the grammatical construction of the Greek and comment on matters of significance in the text.

The set text is Reading Greek (Cambridge, 2nd ed. 2007), which consists of two separate volumes: (1)Text and Vocabulary and (2)Grammar and Exercises.
