    Specific Name Review: Structures

    So far the finished, completely standardized list of building names in Greek, for all Greekspeaking civilizations. Criticism welcome (please don't give me any headaches though). What I could NOT find was a suitable word for ARCHERY RANGE. Considered "Toxotheke" 'bow-case', by analogy to bibliotheke 'book-case' and similar constructs meaning gem-case etc. - word actually exists, meaning quiver. HELP.

  3. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    Specific Name Review: Structures

    But okay, I see there is little interest, so I rest my case. Let us do it. Let us just continue with polytonic Latin transliteration. Here is the CORRECTED LIST, corrections in bold:
  4. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    Specific Name Review: Structures

    Yes, I am trying to convince you all that it is wiser not to add polytonic diacritics to the Latin transliterations. And since people here like to argue - which is fine - I just thought let us roll out the best of aaaaaalllll the arguments, which is that 95% of those who can actually read Greek polytonic still can't pronounce it correctly even though they have much more schooling. Which is why I ask - why even bother adding it to the Latin translations.
  5. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    Specific Name Review: Structures

    I meant this: I see now some different schemes for transliteration, some of them are Latin letters, with sort of polytonic diacritics above them. I would like to make a challenge to try the argument: ἀλλὰ καὶ ὧς ἐθέλω δόμεναι πάλιν εἰ τό γ᾽ ἄμεινον: βούλομ᾽ ἐγὼ λαὸν σῶν ἔμμεναι ἢ ἀπολέσθαι: αὐτὰρ ἐμοὶ γέρας αὐτίχ᾽ ἑτοιμάσατ᾽ ὄφρα μὴ οἶος Ἀργείων ἀγέραστος ἔω, ἐπεὶ οὐδὲ ἔοικε: λεύσσετε γὰρ τό γε πάντες ὅ μοι γέρας ἔρχεται ἄλλῃ. Is there anyone here in this forum who can render that passage correctly and upload an mp3 recording? I will then upload my "correct" mp3 for people to compare. My wager is that even those who actually know Greek will rarely get it right, so those who read strange markings over latin transliterations will have no use for it. I propose transliteration without diacritics - only ô and ê for Ω and Η, and nothing else.
  6. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    Specific Name Review: Structures

    PLEASE let us have a consideration of whether this polytonic transliteration is really something we can't do without. Because consider please that it takes quite some schooling to be able to execute those polytonic accents correctly even if you have been schooled to understand them and can read Greek letters - which you probably can if you can read the accents, right? - and even THEN, it is super inauthentic since the ancients never used diacritical marks (or any punctuation really) and in addition to that they did not use any minuscule letters. Only koine Greek started to develop a "pressure" principle in pronounciation, like we have today. But not until late in our period of the game. So why not just used clear unconfusing transliteration, which all can understand, without accents. Or what about clear transliteration, in Latin capital letters?

    Civ: Mycenaeans

    Achilles was a king, they were almost all kings or princes in the whole iliad.
  8. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    Faction: Byzantines

    CAN I JUST SAY that the byzantines faction turned out to be AWESOME. AWE SOME. Fantastic work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    ===[TASK]=== Removing all carpets from the game

    Great job, thanks. English translations will use blankets/carpets/mats/bedspreads interchangeably according to the translator. In the iliad and odyssey we find kings and princes - you quoted the famous "Awake, son of Tydeus! what slumberest thou!", a personal favorite of mine. So you find everything in the Iliad and Odyssey adorned with gold and silver, because the main actors in the drama are all kings and princes and gods, ennobling the work, a hallmark of Homeric poetry. Like I said you can add a splendid drapery or carpet to one or two buildings. But don't put Persian medieval-style rugs, and not on dirty ground or roofs, this is my advice to you. Romans and byzantines got civilized markets, the Ptolemies somehow got the untidy messy one. Maybe because we think of Greeks of today as bankrupt and ill-organized, or because films from Egypt have shaped some perceptions to make this seem natural.
  10. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    ===[TASK]=== Removing all carpets from the game

    You definitely want to avoid people like that influencing the game, it is right to ask for sources. Just don't give me a headache with these carpets, for heaven's sake lads
  11. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    ===[TASK]=== Removing all carpets from the game

    Reminds me of those films set in the "middle ages" where everyone's face is full of dirt, and even the king's castle apartments have just bare walls, treestumps to sit and hay to sleep on and chickens running around and waste everywhere
  12. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    ===[TASK]=== Removing all carpets from the game

    Grass/reed mats like you yourself suggested, or wool mats (but why put a nice wool mat on dirt? doesn't make sense. Putting an expensive imported oriental rug on dirt, well, I am done with that one). In general, how about just tidying up the place though? Do you think the rulers of Alexandria would have just allowed all kinds of dirty rubbish and dusty rags to be floating about in the city? They measured the circumference of the earth, discovered countless things and pioneered a revolution in civilization, built a wonder of the world. Surely they would have kept some order too. Just look at how nice this settlement turned out. The Romans faction turned out really well. Tidy up the Ptolemies structures and hellenize a few more of the buildings, we are NOT that far aways from our dream result!
  13. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    ===[TASK]=== Removing all carpets from the game

    I have nothing more to add. Look all you want, unless you change the houses into palaces you would do wisely to remove the oriental rugs. Or by all means, continue with "Aladdin A.D." because of random quarrel. I am helping you eliminate a little historical mistake. Say "thanks" and get on with your lives, it is not so difficult. Sorry for overreacting before.
  14. Anaxandridas ho Skandiates

    ===[TASK]=== Removing all carpets from the game

    Yea I know, sorry. Trying to contribute with real stuff here, proving nonexistence of oriental carpets not on list of priorities.

    Transliteration of Ancient Greek into English

    My dear friend, I think that transliteration is not any worse or better than what I proposed. (although the ancients of course used no accents, and I recommend just ê and ô for heta and omega. It would be great to write Greek and Latin words transliterated with Latin capitals at any event.) Both are fine with me - but the question is, how do we standardize the WHOLE GAME, every Greek word? The most important thing is, whichever system we use, it is CONSISTENTLY APPLIED. Now different civs have same words spelled differently or have just spelling mistakes. Just little things here and there, as could be expected with such a big enterprise. I cannot at all find my way through your references though. I can only code HTML. What I can do, is meticulously go through every structure and every unit in all Greek civs, and post the corrections needed here. But one transliteration-standard must be decided, then I can do the entire lookup work, and maybe you can add to the game? We need some leading figure to decide on a transliteration-standard, now, so we can do this.
