The last person in school to take an exam. Euh. Iliad on monday - revising now. Language on wednesday - use tuesday.

Looking forward to these, everyone? Or shall we just bury our heads in the sand?

naa, about equal to the latin unseens

tbh, rinsed the xenophon but the oidipous part of euripides was a bit gay

managed to nail the scansion tho, which was pleasing because i messed up the latin scansion big time

'ang tight for the composition next tuesday!

i've been taking it very easy since the amores. been cba to do anything.

if this year's greek compo is anything like the latin, it should only require the most basic of constructions (oblique speech and purpose clauses). so i think i'll look at just over half a dozen of the most common types of clauses and then go over things i dont rly know (contract verbs, -mi verbs, irregular adjectives, etc).

Pretty much me too, apart from chem synoptic, but I reckon it's too late to do anything now, so might as well just see how it goes...

I figured the principle parts were from meino, deiknumi and orgizomai respectively, with various prefixes.

Yup, me too, and the optative was historic indefinite clause and a historic indirect statement of the oti type as it was a verb of announcing (if I remember rightly..)

The first optative was in time indistinct, the second I think I claimed was a purpose or result clause. I'm unaware of special instances for verbs of announcing, but that sounds rather promising.

i've never heard of either of these :O

i considered doing the composition, and it looked manageable, but i was wary that im normally always rly pushed for time on greek compo's. so i just did the comprehension instead

my grammar is very bad so didnt bother answering any of the grammar Qs

what was the "autonomous" thing about? blargh, definitely havent got higher than half marks on that paper :/

I guessed that was about plural neuter nouns and singular adjectives. That seemed the only plausible response.
