    Elementary Greek Year One

    In the Elementary Greek I Teacher Key, on p. 40, the last translation under 13.3, sinners, has an O (omicron) where there should be an ω (omega). Also, the accent on the second epsilon of "esmen" is marked as grave in the TM while everywhere else it is acute.

    It should read ἐσμέν ἁμαρτωλοὶ.

    Hello.

    Sorry for the delayed response! I am in Wichita! Here's what I got from Ian when I sent him your correction:

    ​​​​​The grave accent is correct as is. Neither Elementary Greek nor First Form Greek teach the rules of accentuation, but this is a correct case where the acute becomes a grave at the end of the word. (We'll point out where it's necessary to know the accents; in this case, we wouldn't count off if they used an acute instead of a grave.)

    Hopefully this makes more sense to you than it does to me! It's all Greek to me.

      But the omega doesn't change to omicron, right?

      Thanks for the help with the accenting.

        From Ian:

        "That's correct! Our Teacher Key is incorrect at that point. I've got it marked for correction in future reprints."
