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.

Quaestio Religiosa

Quaestionem omnibus vobis qui latinam linguam dicere scitis habeo: quantum vestri sunt christaini? Si ita, estisne Protestantes vel Catholici Romani vel Graeci Orthodoxi vel alii?

Sum Christianus et Protestantor, specialius, Presbyterianus Reformatus.

Me corrige si erro, quaeso.

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. Nonetheless, I thought ...

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.

I. I upload a scene that looks somehow Roman/Greek but with empty speech balloon(s). Like below.

II. You write the conversation going on in Greek and post it here.

III. The completed scene with the conversation you posted is uploaded. Like below. Words provided by bedwere. Thanks! ...

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.

II. You create the conversation going on in Latin and post it here.

III. The completed scene with the ...

Disce Videndo: Visual Reference

As I keep looking up the same words over and over again, I decided to make a graphical reference. And I thought I'd share it hoping it might help somebody like me. Why starts with a hand? Because I needed it for my own project. Maybe more to follow in future.

Any correction, suggestion, and advice would be deeply appreciated. If you make a correction, I'll fix it and re-upload it again.

What's the weather today? (Latine)

I think it would be nice to have the Latin equivalent of the popular Greek thread. I've dug the index for the existing one, but found none in the last couple of pages. So I hope you don't mind my starting a new one.

Iaponiae ubi habito saepe pluit in hoc tempore anni, autumno. Hodie non imbricum est, sed multas nubes imbriferas video. Robur obtruncandum in horto habeo, sed forsan non hodie.

Omnes invitantur ad ...
