Hello b-greekers --
Here's a wonderful pair of websites I discovered yesterday, particularly
for folks like myself, with a much stronger math-and-science background
which offers (scroll down) a free downloadable pdf of Euclid's Elements
with Greek and English next to one another, and lexicon (just quick
glosses, but very helpful) in the back. I like it so much, I've ordered
the print-on-demand paper copy also offered. But the pdf is very good.
which gives some background on Euclid himself and his work, then a
complete course on the math and the Greek of Euclid's /Elements/.
The great thing about Euclid's Elements, for Greek students, is that it
starts off with short declarative sentences that define terms, and then
builds up the structure step by step... of course it helps if you loved
Geometry class in high school.....
