Spot check good on sections 1 & 6!

For 7, all good, except for this:

19:52 καταεμνηντο II.iv.13

I now hear κατετεμνηντο. The strong grade present of the verb may be causing confusion. The perfect of τέμνω is τέτμηκα with that weak grade "τμ" consonant combination. So 3rd plural pluperfect middle, as in this passage, should be: κατ-ε-τέ-τμη-ντο

Aargh! :oops: I know some Italians that can't say ψι but say πισσι. I guess I have an Achilles's heel too with τμ. I wonder how the people of ancient Spina, close to which I was born, pronounced τμ. :D
Anyway, please check again Section 7 at 19:52. It should be OK now.

Much better! Section 7 is good.

It's not any better for English speakers. I think that the Greeks took delight in making their language as difficult as possible. But repeating these iambics helped me with my own -τμ- inability (I have the whole opening to Medea memorized):

μήδ᾽ ἐν νάπαισι Πηλίου πεσεῖν ποτε
τμηθεῖσα πεύκη, μήδ᾽ ἐρετμῶσαι χέρας
