Well, though Callaina is maybe being a little weird on this point, let's just let her do as she prefers. I don't think an endless discussion will turn out being very pleasant or productive for either of you.
This would definitely work better for me, since the characters will show up as Greek on my screen. I'll look into how to do this on my system, thanksYou know, Callaina, you can set up your keyboard for Polytonic Greek Unicode if you want to actually type in Greek. Perseus's lookup tool will recognize Greek text as well, and you don't have to get the diacritics right (it ignores them for the input).
Understood. Thanks for clarifying, though.Yes, it probably won't be productive I just wanted to make sure that it is understood that all the resources I offered give you pages written in proper Greek and you also type the word there with the idea that you've read FIRST in a proper Greek
Ah, but there lies the rub.(you have a proper Greek mental input, you transliterate just for one mid-step
I sincerely think that's a false belief since by typing on the polytonic Greek keyb. is just pushing the same keys as if beta-code... I don't believe it could harm you in any way as you're just typing out the word which is in your mind (and then reading it in the dictionary), but whatever.Ah, but there lies the rub.
Well, it's true I'd still rather have a Greek keyboard, but at least I will see the word written out in proper Greek letters on my screen (and this makes a massive difference to the way I remember it.)I sincerely think that's a false belief since by typing on the polytonic Greek keyb. is just pushing the same keys as if beta-code...
I sympathize unhesitatingly, and I've an anecdote partly explaining why.LOL, like I said: for anyone else it would work, but for me it doesn't, because I learn visually, and I'm more familiar with Latin letters (obviously); so if I type it in Latin letters, I'll remember that and not the way the word looks in Greek.
Aurifex's job had nothing to do with beta-code... He just had to write the title in true Greek letters and went wrong because his brain had been influenced by a Latin-letter transcription in bibliographical notes.They should have warned Aurifex though, that beta-code should be used...
