HELP: power and pronouns

HELP! PLEASE!

Eccite Hominem?

Here's a question that I, being such a neophyte, have been puzzling over since I finished Wheelock's Latin Grammar and then heard, once again, the famous Pontius Pilot quote, 'Ecce Homo!'

Pilot was addressing a croud, and 'homo' should be in the accusative, right? So why did he not say 'Eccite Hominem!'? That's assuming that my grammar here is correct, I haven't checked it to make sure.

Vocabulary Master

My favorite PC flash-card program is called Vocabulary Master (click to download) and is free from Transparent Language.

I've used it teaching junior high and high school, in Latin and Spanish, and used it myself to study when I was in college. Strangely addictive.

Anyone else used it?

How/why do people pronuance Caesar

Simple question, I am assuming that Caesar is pronounced as in Ky-aesar. But generally people in films, TV, media or should I group them as popular culture say it as Se-aesar.

Where/when did the pronounciation go so 'wide' or the marker like this?

Oxford latin Dictionary

Hello people, I was wondering if anyone has ever come across the oxford latin dictionary. I'm talking about the version that costs ~$200!

Is it worth the price?

My goal is to learn the basics in the short term so I can read and speak 'average' latin material , but for the long term so I can play around with the language itself.

thanks
