Required Text/BooksAthenaze Book 1 2nd Ed. 2003 by Balme and Lawall, Oxford University Press. ISBN 9780195149562
Summary: Introducing the language of ancient Athens, the language of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle among others, we will be starting with the Greek writing system, grammar (including Latin grammatical categories), morphological forms, and syntax. Modern Greek pronunciation will be used as a basis for reading instead of historical phonological reconstruction. For the spring semester: Completing the first book of the Athenaze series, we will continue to explore and break down morphological constructions, and build upon our understanding of syntax as we begin to read increasingly complex texts. Modern Greek pronunciation will be used as a basis for reading instead of historical phonological reconstruction. Many states accept classical languages as credit for the foreign language requirement.
