AP/GK 1000 6.00
Elementary Classical Greek
This course is designed for those who have little or no training in Ancient Greek, which is essentially the Attic dialect spoken and written by the Athenians of the fifth and fourth centuries BC. No knowledge of the language is assumed. The course uses the pronunciation of Ancient Greek that was established by Erasmus in the sixteenth century (the reformed pronunciation). In this course, students will acquire the fundamentals of Ancient Greek through reading and work with Ancient Greek pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, syntax, translation, and some composition. After the course, students may move to the intermediate 2000-level Greek course and then on to the advanced 3000-level and 4000-level Greek courses at York.
