Does having typed it out feel more worthwhile if I tell you that "τός" isn't an accusative singular article? And that νόσος needs feminine articles anyway?

Since it helps me correct a mistake or two, I'd say yes.

Anywho, it's a new week. Shall we move on to Unit 5? (Which for me means finishing Unit 4 still.)

Just wanted to stop by and let you guys know I'm dropping out. Cause you know, that's what I always do with these study groups.



But seriously, I'm at a wedding that is out of town this weekend, so I'm going to be a bit late updating here.

So I did all the exercises for Unit 4. :P I made a few more mistakes this time. I forgot to use the grave again in exercises #1-2 (as did księżycowy ;)) but not exercise #5! I made some other spelling errors, too:
► Show Spoiler

I'm only reviewing y'all's answers for exercise #1 for now. The only difference between kevin and the answer key for that exercise is just a few typos:
kevin wrote:Unit 4, exercise 1:

3. τὴς παιδείας

Should be τς
6. ταὶς γνωμαίς

The exercise asks for accusative here, not dative, and I think the accent on both words is wrong. Dative would be ταῖς γνώμαις.
8. ταὶς δίκαις

Here also, the accent on the article is wrong: ταῖς.
12. τῇ νόσῷ

Last accent is wrong (can't have two accents on the same word!).
28. τῇ νίκῇ

Same here

Księżycowy mostly had typos, too, but a few more typos :P
księżycowy wrote:2. αἱ ἡδοναὶ

The grave isn't supposed to come at the end of an utterance, only at the end of a word in the middle of an utterance.
5. τῆς τιμής

τιμς
6. τάς γςώμας

Lol
7. τῶν τόλεμων

πολέμων
9. τάς σκηνᾶς

Last vowel has an acute accent, not a circumflex.
12. τῷ ςόσῳ

τῇ νόσῳ. Remember, this is feminine! Trick question! :D (Also again with the non-final ς instead of ν...:hmm:)
13. ἄςθρωποι

ἄνθρωπε. The exercise says "sing.," not "pl."!
14. τοῖς ὁδοῖς

ταῖς. ὁδός is feminine. Look out for these!
15. ταῖς γνώμαις

Genitive, not dative (I think this is correct for dative, though)
21. τοῦ ὁδοῦ

τῆς, since it's feminine
23. ταῖς αδέλφαις

ἀδελφαῖς
26. τήν τιμή

τιμήν
30. τῶν θύπων

θυρῶν
