Getting started on ancient Greek

9 Summary

This session has examined the links between Greek and English, and looked at some common items of Greek vocabulary. It has also introduced the Greek definite article and shown how the article varies its form depending on the gender of a word. You have seen how to determine a word’s gender from its dictionary entry.

You are not expected to remember all the words you have encountered. But if you would like to review some of the most common items of Greek vocabulary, you could look again at the activities in Section 5 of this session.
