New Resource Link for Classical Greek Correspondence in E-mail

Greek to Me (1)

There has been a lot piling up of late. Big internal transitions in Hellenion, renewals for current members, ten new members (each with a customized membership kit to prepare), the civic holidays with family visiting, a seminar to coordinate for work, and because I’m getting the lay-off I’m looking for new work as well. Never the less, I have been working on some draft posts. Below is a quick update:

I’ve updated the links in the sidebar and on the links page to include a well-researched reference on how to adapt classical Greek (and Roman) salutations and closings for letters to modern day email.

I’ve used this to update official correspondence as Hellenion’s Grammatues:

(recipient-dat) para {PARA\} (sender-gen) = To (recipient) from (sender).
Tois Joe para Alexandra = To Joe from Alexandra

and

erromenon se hoi theoi diaphulattoien = May the Gods guard your well-being.

Today, I’ll close with this:

Ta d’ alla, seautou epimelou hin hugiaineis. For the rest, take care to stay well.
