Intralinear Translation of Iliad A 1-7

This is the first complete sentence in all of Western literature, and some of the most famous first lines in history. Not to mention some high caliber poetry (the Greek at least). The first seven lines of the Iliad in Órgom Silawa. (NB: Superscripted letters indicate elision. Also, you will need to click on it to see the whole thing, since it's too big to display here.)

The Greek and Orgom Silawa visually complement each other very well. The films you have been making where you speak in Orgom Silawa always get an 'encore' from me.

Hey, thanks! I'm glad you've enjoyed it. Sadly, I haven't had time to do much with Orgom Silawa lately, but summer is coming up...
