Beyond the Triple- Triple.
If you already know enough about Words with Friends (WWF) to not set up your opponent to play a Triple Letter – Triple Word combination, this strategy guide is for you. Let’s get beyond the basic defensive strategy tips that abound on the internet.
The original word is κυβερναω (kybernaw) “to guide, steer, govern.” The most common Greek form is the noun κθβερνητης, meaning “pilot, helmsman.”
The Latin & English root is “guberno,” from which we get “gubernatorial,” and “governor.” (There’s something called Grassman’s Law, that, in following the Indo-European languages, defines certain patterns/relationships. Thus Greek K frequently comes up in English as G. And Greek Y ends up U.)
I have been working on Ancient Greek for over five years, starting in late 2006 with Mastronarde’s Attic grammar. Now, having just read this useful, instructive post on Textkit, I want to reconsider my own approach to learning. In brief, that guy, “Chad,” recommends a detailed, methodical approach, with a goal of reading Attic texts “straight through.”
