2 T5.2 ΜCM ὀ Ἐρμης τας ψυχας ἀγει ἐς Ἀιδου. Subject d.o. verb Hermes leads the souls to Hades. Very good. ( : You intended to put a rough breathing on the article with Hermes, yes?
3 T5.4 MCM Καλη ὀδος εστιν ἡ θαλασσα Nom. Verb nom. (semicolon in English goes here, but I don t know yet how to make the appropriate mark in this Greek typing program.) εἰσ γαρ τας νησοθς αγει. verb The sea is a fine journey (way) for it leads toward the islands. Very good ( : I am impressed with the level of translation this group exhibits. You are all much more elegant and courageous with your English than I was at your level. I am still rather timid in translation as it happens <g>
4 T 5.5 (JDS) οὐ κραυγῇ ἀλλὰ σιγῇ βαίνουσιν ἀπὸ τοῦ τῶν θεῶν ἱεροῦ. adv dat conj dat V prep gen gen Not with shouting but rather silence they depart the temple of the gods. Very Good. Note how rather, while not represented in the Greek directly, makes for an elegant English translation. I might have added a balancing with, or perhaps an in, but that s just me and yours is just fine. Not with shouting, but rather with silence, they depart the temple of the gods. OR Not with shouting, but rather in silence, they depart the temple of the gods. See how much flexibility we have as translators?
5 T5.6 RDS Diafe/romen tw~n qhri/wn th~ yuxh~. 1p present gen plural dat sing We differ from (the) beasts by the soul. We differ from animals because we have souls. Very good. Yes, either of these renders the Greek, but the second one makes for nicer English no?

No need to mark them as singular, because number is not the essential quality here-it s the case with a certain preposition.

Very good ( : For everyone: We might start marking Clauses now, following Dr. Pozzi s method. So we will use [ ] for Independent Sentences/clauses, and ( ) for dependent/subordinate clauses. Here we have two independent sentences. In English you may punctuate these with a coma between the two clauses, or with a semi-colon between them, or I suppose, even with a period at the end of each-though that s more disjointed. I am no expert in English punctuation ( : The reason we mark clauses is that soon we will have to think about them much more and it helps to see how they are laid out visually. Trust me.
