Limit of Ten Links

Hi,


There is a limit of ten links for each post on Textkit. Would the moderators consider raising or abolishing the limit? In long posts about corrections of texts I needed to include links to Perseus and I was often stymied by the limit. Thanks!

Erik introduces himself.

Hi,

I'm a phd fellow in Rhetoric at Uppsala University.

I have become interested in attic greek through my interest in contemporary rhetoric and continental philosophy, two fields that rely heavily on ancient greek thinking. I have especielly become interested in the reception and reinvention of a few specific ancient concepts and how their new uses relate to the way these concepts are used in the ancient sources.

My struggle with getting a better grasp ...

Over Thirty Years Ago: An Introduction

Greetings from Arlington, Massachusetts!

I studied Ancient Greek back in what seems an eternity ago, 1979-80, at the College of Wooster in Ohio. If I recall correctly, I had three quarters worth: in the first quarter we used what must have been a very early version of the Luschnig text (I recall that it was bound like a book but looked more typed than typeset); in quarter two we did something from the New Testament ...

Hello from Leeds!

Hello! I'm a Latin graduate who prefers not to count how many years ago she graduated! My subsid then was French. Now I have retired from teaching and trained as a Church of England Reader. Pulling my Latin and church interests together, I have just started learning New Testament Greek, and I'm delighted to have found you! I look forward to some interesting content on your site.

A Homeschooler's Introduction

I'm 15, almost 16, years old and would be in grade 10 in a regular U.S high school. I hope to be able to take the AP Latin exam either this coming year or the year after that; I'm aware that there's a history element to the test and will be taking an OCW semester course for this. The main problem is, I have no teacher and I can't afford a tutor.

For a long ...

Ciao!

Hello to all Textkit members! I'm an italian software programmer and I admit, I've never really studied Greek and Latin :oops: . The reason why I'm here is that for my work (and also for personal interest) I often deal with linguistic origins and etymologies of words... and we all know that 99% of what we say every day comes from these two "ρίζες"... so I hope ...

New Member From NYC

Greeting Textkit Community,

I am an English teacher studying Latin independently. I made it through Wheelock, and I'm up to the 8th Loci Immutati in the back of the book. Sometimes I'll translate a few of Phaedrus' fables for a change. My goal is to gain enough fluency to be able to actually read some real Latin, not just translate it, if you know what I mean. One challenge will be to read Latin poetry ...

Hello

Hi, I'm joining this board because it looks like it would help a lot with my Latin and it's good to have more experienced posters around. In early November of last year I picked up Wheelock's Latin, then proceeded to the Wheelock's Latin Reader, and a few months ago to Caesar's Gallic War.
