Greek - Intensive Course
Study Cycle: 1
Lecturer(s): doc. dr. Inkret Andreja, prof. dr. Kavčič Jerneja
The course is meant to be an intense beginners' course in ancient Greek; no prior knowledge is assumed. The course content includes ancient Greek writing system, pronunciation, as well as gradually acquired knowledge of basic morphology, most frequently used syntactic compositions and basic vocabulary of ancient Greek.
From first lessons onwards, students improve and test their knowledge reading, linguistically analyzing and translating original short sentences and passages extending from Homer to late Antiquity, adapted and commentated according to students' needs.
In the 2nd semester, the course synoptically deals with essential morphological and syntactic characteristics of Classical Greek. When necessary, it takes into account also characteristics of other ancient Greek dialects, particularly features in which the latter differ from Classical Attic dialect.
The course will give special attention to essential differences that can be found between ancient Greek and Slovenian system of language, as well as to consequences of these differences which effect translating from ancient Greek into Slovenian.
