τοῖς φιλέλλησι χαίρειν
Learning a language is like training a muscle: You have to keep at it on a daily basis in order to build up strength. Since regular practice is so crucial, I decided to start a new series that is intended to keep learners of Ancient Greek in daily contact with the language: It is called “Ancient Greek Word of the Day” and you can follow it on our new Facebook page, on Instagram or here on triodos-trivium.com.
Each day, I’ll present one new word with a short explanation in Ancient Greek (and English) as well as some image(s) and a quote.
The words for this series are taken from a lexicon of Ancient Greek that a good friend of mine has put together over the last three years (τῷ Ἀδριανῷ τοῦτο ἀναγιγνώσκοντι χαίρειν! 🙂 ). In his book the words are ordered according to categories which makes it easier to memorize words as well as to use them for Ancient Greek conversation. We hope to publish the book within Triodos Trivium in spring 2022.
Since I, personally, like animals quite a lot, the first couple of words for the “Ancient Greek Word of the Day” series will be taken from this category: τὰ ζῷα – animals.
I hope you will enjoy the series and will find it helpful for your study of Ancient Greek!
As always: Let us know what you think – we’ll be glad to hear from you!
