latin dipthongs "ai" and "oi" ??

How do you pronounce the Latin words maior and troianus?
Are ai and oi dipthongs in Latin?
If so, why are they not listed in the pronunciation guide of my Wheelock text??
There's no information about the pronunciation of these letter combinations in any of the grammar books I could find!!!!!

Latin Grammar Books Question

Hello all,

I recently purchased Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar. I have noticed that on Textkit there exists Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar. Is one better than the other? I have looked through the first fifty pages of each, and they appear to be roughly similar.

If you all think A&G's book is superior I am not against buying that one, too.

Many thanks in advance,
William B.

Little Red Riding Hood

Does anyone know how the official translation of 'Little Red Riding Hood' sounds in Latin? Or maybe some know a site with the names of different figures and cartoons? E.g. how to say Snowwhite, etc.?

There must be also Latin names as for Tintinus et Millulus, Asterix et Obelix and Mikey musculus ..., but where to find them?


Grazie mille,

Moerus

and then just

My True Love, My Greatest Joy, My Best Friend

I'm just beginning in Latin, and while I can figure out what each individual word is.. my grammar would be horrible, and probably end up being something crazy - which I really don't want since ...
