GRAMMA 4.0

Gramma is a set of handy drills for those studying the Ancient Greek language. It is pre-loaded with vocabulary from Athenaze (Oxford University Press), Reading Greek (Cambridge University Press), A New Introduction to Greek (Harvard University Press), Groton 's From Alpha to Omega (Focus), and Hansen & Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course.

The package includes three sections. First, there is a vocabulary drill which allows the user to set several useful parameters before starting a drill: the word list range, number of items per drill, percentage of items presented in English or Greek. If drilling English to Greek, you can request that the program note missing diacriticals . When working from Greek to English, if the answer is not an exact match, the program will present the full definition and allow the user to give herself credit if she believes her answer is close enough. A running record is kept so that future drilling can concentrate on demonstrated weaknesses.

The second section drills virtually all the inflected forms of substantives ( nouns, pronouns, and adjectives ). The main option is whether to parse forms that are presented or create forms that fit a set of given, grammatical specifications. The vocabulary can be chosen either by chapter (for Athenaze users) or by checking off individual words (from the complete Athenaze list). The third section works much the same way for verbs.
