Continuing our study of the language of ancient Athens, the language of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle among others. Modern Greek pronunciation will be used as a basis for reading instead of an historical phonological reconstruction. Throughout the year, we will continue to parse morphological constructions, building upon our understanding of syntax as we begin to read increasingly complex texts. Many states accept classical languages as credit for the foreign language requirement.
