  Vocabulary  
 


Review the vocabulary list on pages 55-56 of your text book. (In the 1986 edition, review the vocabulary list on pages 35-36.)

 
  Homework  
 
  • On pages 62-63 of your text book, in part A translate #'s 3, 5, 8, & 9. (In the 1986 edition, find these exercises on pages 40-41.)


  • Answer the following questions:
    1. What is a postpositive?
    2. What is an enclitic?
    3. Unless attraction occurs, what usually determines the the case of a relative pronoun?
    4. Explain what is meant by "the attraction of a relative pronoun to the case of its antecedent," and tell when this usually occurs.

  • Translate the following sentences into Greek. Each sentence has a relative clause that begins with a relative pronoun. Translate the relative pronoun so that it agrees with its antecedent in number and gender, but let its case be determined by its function in its own clause. In each sentence, I have underlined the relative clause for you. I think you will find it helpful to translate the main clause first and then translate the relative clause. Also, remember that προφήτης is a masculine noun even though it is a first declension noun (feminine type endings).
  1. The man who hears the word of the prophet believes the truth.

  2. The woman who sees the truth knows the Lord. (You don't know the word for "woman" yet, but you don't need such a word. Simply use a feminine definite article. Be sure your relative pronoun agrees with this definite article in gender as well as number.)

  3. The same woman who knows the Lord teaches her own children. (Again, you don't need a word for "woman." The third person pronoun can be used attributively for "the same" and can function as a substantive without an explicit noun.)

  4. The children believe the things which the prophet says.

  5. The children themselves teach the truth to others who do not believe.
