Additional study resource

I am using Wheelock and D'Ooge for main Latin studies but I have found "Latin for Dummies" a useful book to dip into between Wheelock and D'Ooge sessions. For example, there are sections on the Roman Calendar, Roman Army, Roman Government, Roman Entertainment, Roman Family and Social Status, Latin in Law, Latin in Medicine etc. etc. which collect lots of varied and useful items together under these headings.

This book may be a bit irreverent ...

Using "The Art of Reading Latin"

I'm thinking about using the technique described in William Gardner Hale's lecture, "The Art of Reading Latin: How to Teach It" and I'm wondering how it might be done by those who are learning by self study.

As a quick summary of the technique (The article can be found in one of the links in the "Outside links of Interest" forum.): Hale proposes that students learn to read Latin as the Romans must have, word-by-word. ...

Latin tools for Palm Pilots


The screen an my old Palm cracked when the Palm took a nosedive onto the floor of a bus, and the unit has not functioned ever since. I have just picked up a new replacement (yep, I skipped the old "new" one I never made the transition to) and am now looking for Latin tools for my new toy.... stuff like Latin vocabulary flash cards, Latin grammar, etc.

Do you have any favorites?

Wondered if i could get a help with a translation?

Firstly, hi there!

I'm new to these boards, but I have read the post on asking for translations. so I know you guys prefer if we attempt translations ourselves........

The situation is that my fiancee and I are due to be married within 12 months and for the occasion we wished for a poem (as you can guess) written in Latin....

I have the poem here, in English, and this is what we would like ...

Jeff, and whoever else put it together, I cannot thank you enough!

I am currently working through North and Hillard Prose Composition while at the same time reading De Bello Gallico. I love it! The two go extremely well together and my understanding of latin is growing daily! Thank you very very much! It's great! :D :D

a question about "non"

Don't do anything...

I am trying to write something for a colleague's farewell card, and rather than "Don't do anything I wouldn't do", I want "Do lots of things I wouldn't".
I have 'fac multa quae non faciam'. Is this right? I'm particulary unsure about the faciam.

Spanish book for beginning Latin?

I am trying to find a Spanish Latin grammar book for my wife.

I got her interested in Latin too, and I think it's a good idea to get her a few books so we can help each other learn.

My problem is in trying to search for a Spanish Latin grammar book. I keep getting Spanish Latin America from the search engines. It's frustrating.

Elephants

Episcopus, shall I buy a pet elephant?

And Klewlis, where do you get used classics books in Ontario? Currently I am looking around for an Oxford Latin Dictionary, and obviously, the new price (~$460 CAN) is discouraging. Therefore tell me of your secret haunts.
