Speaking of Latin apps to be developed...

Except for Perseus (which can only be run with an internet connection), there is no Latin dictionary software available that provides information about VOWEL QUANTITY--at least that I know of. Please correct me if I am wrong, because I think such a program would be of great use to classicists. Not only are vowel quantities essential for reading Latin, but they're essential elements of Latin style as well: scanning verse, as well as scanning rhetorical ...

Windows interface for William Whitaker's WORDS

It's a little program I put together. There are a few bugs, but for most users it should work without a glitch. I may end up getting a domain, but this address should still remain accessible. Feel free to add a link to any classics related pages.

Keller and Russell's Learn to Read Latin

Has anyone used this text before? It's quite nice as it comes with a 550+ page work book to accompany it. From what I've been told it's not unlike Moreland and Fleischer in its approach to the language.

On that note, I have a translation question. I'm a first year university Latin student, so bear with me (I've only got a 75.5%).

Would I be cheating myself in class if...

If I posted a paragraph I translated from Latin to English and asked you guys/gals to correct it? I say this because I have to hand it in for marks in my course. Is there a way that I could post my translation and you guys/gals could just point out what I did wrong or something without telling me the answer? I don't want to cheat myself here and not get an honest mark, but ...

Medieval Latin

Hi Everyone

I am new to this site, but it seems a great resource - I am glad I found it.

I had a classical eduction, learning the usual Latin authors (say approx 100 years either side of Caesar or Cicero).

However, my main interest now is in medieval Latin - from say Augustine right through to the 16th century.

How much different is medieval Latin from the classical period ? And does it change ...

Declension of Nouns

Greetings all fellow Latin learners (and experts!). I have just started an MA degree in Ancient Myth & Society and am currently taking beginners Latin to complement this. However, I am a little stuck on learning the declension of nouns. Does anyone have any learning strategies for over coming this obstacle? In fact, if anyone has any ideas about studying Latin at home without instant access to a tutor I would be most grateful to ...

translation help please

I need help translating something from latin to english that probably isn't grammatically correct, and I don't think it means anything the way it's written but the words might mean something separately. I read it in a book and it might be old latin. It would help if I could have all possible translations of each word, but I can't find a good dictionary online. Thanks for any help.

need help

I'm having some trouble translating the sentance "where are they going?" into latin. Im not sure what to do with going because it has to be a third person plural because of the they but its also a participle (I think). Can anybody help me out on whether or not the verb should be a participle and if not, what the construction is?
