The European Referendum in Britain

ἀγχωμάλου δὲ τῆς σπουδῆς φαινομένης ὀρρωδῶ τὴν ἀδηλότητα. ὀρρωδῶ τὴν φιλοκίνδυνον φιλοτιμίαν τὴν τοῦ ῥητωρος ἐπιθυμῶν εἶναι ἀρχῶν. νῦν ἀκούω βροντὴν καὶ ὁρῶ κεραυνὸν ἀλλὰ ὀρρωδῶ τινα οπισθεν χειμῶνα.

Quid fecistis ad meliorem faciendum Latinitatis vestrae?

Salvete,

Inspirati a Davidis Graeco filo, scribamus hic res quas omnibus diebus fecissemus ad meliorem faciendum Latinitatis nostrae.

Incipiam:
Hodie legi paululum e Libro X Titi Livii Ab Urbe Condita, et hoc filum incepi.

Θεμέλιον θέντες πρὸς ἔννοιαν οἰκοδομήσωμεν ἐπ' αὐτό.

Σκόπος:
    ὀψάριον

Θέσις θεμελίου:
    ¹ὑδρόβιος – βιοῦν ἐν ὕδατι.
    ²ὕδωρ - ὑγρὸν ἄχρωμον, ἄοσμον καὶ ἄγευστον.
    ³ἀναπνέειν - ἀσκεῖν τὴν λειτουργίαν τῆς ἀναπνοῆς; εἰσπνεῖν.
    ⁴ἀτρακτοειδής - ἔχων τὸ εἶδος ἀτράκτου.
    ⁵λεπίς - ἕν τῶν ἡμικυκλικῶν σκληρῶν πλακιδίων ἃ καλύπτουσιν τὸ σῶμα τῶν ὀψαρίων, ἑρπετῶν, πτηνῶν ἢ καὶ θηλαστικῶν.

Οἰκοδομή:
    ὀψάριον - ὑδρόβιον¹ ζῷον, ζοῦν μὲν ἐν ὕδατι² καὶ ἀναπνέον³ βραγχίοις , ἔχον δὲ σῶμα ἀτρακτοειδὲς⁴ καὶ κεκαλυμμένον λεπίσιν⁵.


What I did studying Greek today (in Greek)

Just open this thread I will explain why I decided to start this thread.

First I wanted to try something like the weather thread but that involved different vocabulary. Further weather is something that just happens to us. It's not entirely true that postings on the weather thread are as a result passive descriptions - for example quite a few posts describe how the poster responded to some change in the weather.

Greek Comic of Our Own

Xairete(?)! bedwere said the Roman Comic thread could be converted to Greek, too, and here I am. How about our own Greek comic? Here's how it works.

Roman Comic of Our Own

Salvete, how about our own Roman comic? Here's how it works.

Seeing the great words by bedwere being buried in the chaos of the "visual reference" thead, I thought I'd better start over with a fresh thread to continue.
