Greek languageI wrote down what I was able to figure out about Using Greek in LaTeX.
I have one electronic Greek text: the first section of Aristotle's treatise on the soul.
I made some notes on symmetry as used in Aristotle.
Gregory R. Crane, Editor-in-Chief, Tufts University. From the homepage, what I use mainly is the Greek and Roman Materials, such as Liddell and Scott, A Greek-English Lexicon (the big one). (For Smyth's grammar, see below.)
The Perseus site once had mirrors, and indeed I used to use the Berlin mirror, since sometimes the main site was down. Then the site was reorganized. The Berlin mirror still exists, but has apparently not been updated. On the ‘About’ page, the main site seems to invite mirroring, but does not list any mirrors. The Berlin mirror links back to the main site in Somerville, Massachusetts, as well as to a mirror in Chicago; but (as of June 20, 2012) the latter link is dead.
Smyth's Greek Grammar
Herbert Weir Smyth, A Greek Grammar for Colleges (New York: American Book Company, 1920), was later revised as Greek Grammar (1956); the name could be simplified because Smyth's Greek Grammar for Schools and Colleges was no longer in print. The editor (Gordon Messing) suggested that the revision ‘might more modestly be termed a corrected reprint’.
The first edition of Smyth's work is available around the web:
- as a pdf file from Textkit;
- from Project Perseus;
- in part from the Christian Classics Ethereal Library at Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan (as of June 20, 2012, this transcription project has reached page 178 of the 782-page work);
- ostensibly in several formats from the Internet Archive.
Note however that at the Internet Archive, although the ‘Read Online’ option seems to be fine,
- the pdf link just takes you to Google books, which does not seem to give me access to the book in question;
- the Epub (and presumably Kindle and Daisy) files, along with the Full Text, are useless, apparently because they were created with OCR software that did not recognize Greek letters!
- I have not been able to check the Djvu file.
