Database of Homeric Moods

In the course of preparing my PhD thesis for publication I catalogued and categorised all instances of the subjunctive and optative in the Iliad and Odyssey.

The database consists of the line references, Greek text, and English translation and various columns to further specify the mood-use in question. Both text and translation were taken from the Perseus web-site (copyright), with occasional modification to the Teubner (Iliad) or OCT (Odyssey) readings. The translation is thus by Murray - rather archaic but helpful for quick assessment of the examples.

The database is password-protected - please email me to ask for it.
