Week 6 Assignments: New Vocab - Sentences - New Syntax - Recitation - Dictation - Review Vocab - Review Syntax - Composition - Listening - Audio Gallery!


For your assigment this week, you will be changing a story told in the present tense into a story told in the past tense. So, make sure you change each of the present tense verbs into the imperfect. You do not have to change anything else - just change the tense of the verb(s) in each sentence. Remember: infinitives do not have tense, so you do not change the infinitive - just the finite verbs. So you will type the sentences, changing the verbs as you go along.

Note there is one word here that is a compound of a verb that you have not seen before: προσερχονται. You can probably guess the meaning of this verb: προσ - ερχονται, "towards-I go," i.e. "I go towards."

When you are done, attach the file to an email and send it to the instructor. Give your email a subject line like "Week 6 Greek Composition." You can see the answer key to the Composition at the website now.

1. αδελφος και αδελφη δουλον εχουσιν, και ουτος ο δουλος τεκνον μικρον εχει. 2. ο αδελφος πονηρος εστιν, αλλα η αδελφη αγαθη και τῳ θεῳ πιστευει. 3. η αδελφη τον δουλον και το τεκνον αυτου γραφειν διδασκει. 4. ο αδελφος θελει τον δουλον αποκτεινειν, αλλα η αδελφη θελει σῳζειν αυτον. 5. η αδελφη και ο δουλος μετα του υιου αυτου εξερχονται εκ του οικου του πονηρου αδελφου. 6. προς αλλην γην προσερχονται, και την ερημον διερχεσθαι οφειλουσιν. 7. εν τῃ ερημῳ αποθνῃσκει το τεκνον, η οδος γαρ ου μικρα, και αρτον ουκ εχουσιν. 8. ο θανατος του τεκνου του δουλου λυει τας καρδιας αυτων. 9. η αδελφη και ο δουλος εις την θαλασσαν εισερχονται και πλοιον ευρισκουσιν. 10. εξερχονται εκ της βασιλειας εκεινης και προς γην καλην και αγαθην πορευονται.
