Clayton Second semester 2009 (Day)
This unit provides CLA Honours students with the opportunity to continue their studies of introductory Ancient Greek. The unit is based on the CLA undergraduate Introductory Ancient Greek units, CLA1121/CLA2121/CLA3121, and aims to develop the student's language capability to the point that s/he is able to read unadapted texts with significant help in grammar and vocabulary. It is designed to give students a sufficiently comprehensive introduction to Attic Greek that they can continue further study to Intermediate and Advanced levels at post-graduate level.
By the completion of this unit, it is expected that students:
- will have a solid understanding of basic Ancient Greek grammar and syntax;
- will have a developing store of Attic Greek vocabulary;
- will be able to read adapted texts from Attic authors with some help in grammar and vocabulary;
- will have a sufficiently comprehensive and secure understanding of elementary grammar, vocabulary and syntax to enable them to continue studies of more advanced Ancient Greek.
