Nice thing on the examples ^^

Question though, what's the difference between {{polytonic|...} and ...? Teentje 11:43, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Any chance anyone who works on Greek could gloss the examples? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:18, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Locative absolute[edit]

Shouldn't there be a reference, not only to the Latin Ablative absolute, but also the Sanskrit Locative absolute? TomS TDotO (talk) 14:21, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

What's Greek for 'genitive absolute'?[edit]

The Latin name is given, but was there a Greek name for this as well? --jftsang 16:31, 25 June 2015 (UTC)


The examples are very clear, but I am wondering whether they are they good Greek. Doesn't αἱ γυναῖκες μόναι οἴκοι εἰσίν mean, not "the women are at home alone", but "only the women are at home"? Perhaps examples from genuine Greek authors could be found to be on the safe side. Kanjuzi (talk) 10:43, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
