29 AUGUST 2012:
WITHIN THE NEXT HOURS, THE DOMAIN "AKWN.NET" WILL BE REDIRECTED TO THE NEW WEB SITE, HOSTED BY WEEBLY.COM. THIS FORMER SITE WILL REMAIN HERE FOR SOME TIME FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO CONSULT IT (FOR FORMER NEWS OR WHATEVER), BUT OBVIOUSLY IN ORDER TO REACH IT YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO
AS THE DOMAIN "AKWN.NET" WILL NOT POINT TO THIS FORMER SITE ANY MORE.
From September on, AKWN will move to a new web server (the chosen option has been Weebly.com, the same server I use for my web site on my grammar) that will allow me to use Unicode and post the news as real text, not as images as I have been doing for ten years (then you will be able to copy and paste them, etc.). In this new web site not only the news will be in Classical Greek but also other elements like for instance the menu at the top navigation bar, the titles of the news, etc., and possibly I will be able to accompany each news with some relevant pictures and links, making the site have the appearance of a real newspaper, not just the boring rectangle-shaped text I have been using up to now.
As soon as the new site starts working, I will redirect the domain "akwn.net" towards the new site. This may cause some problems at the beginning, so it's possible that at the very beginning I have to put a link here to take you to the new site.
So, let's say a nostalgic "good-bye" to this site as we have known it for ten years...
I have recently published Classical Greek: A New Grammar, a new grammar for both absolute beginners and students who already have a sound knowledge of the language but need to revise and enhance it.
For more information about it (and about other books that will follow, like for instance the Latin grammar), please go to this website:
