Using Latin Series

Using Latin is a series of three books which takes the student from basic grammar(not just Latin but English as well) to longer and more difficult stories plus there is a plethora of illustrations. I used the first book myself back in the 60s when I was a freshman in high school. I always thought these books gave a good balance between the grammar and real reading experience as opposed to many books today which ...

Forum for Biblical Hebrew?

Hello everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone here is aware of any boards similar to these ones but for Biblical Hebrew. The idea would be to find somewhere that would have a specific place for grammatical questions (often even basic ones). Anyone aware of anything?

Oxford Classical Texts

My email to Oxford University Press customer service:

I recently purchased Opera Omnia (Tomus III: Expedito Cyri) from the Oxford Classical Texts series, and I write to report several major issues with the print quality.

The current text is unreadable. According to the publication page, the work was digitally transferred in the late 1980s. I have a 1920s edition and the new edition in front of me, and the new edition is best described as ...

Textkit slow for me

Every click on textkit takes a minute or more to process. I suspect that it is because of my temporary internet connection situation. But it is curious that it is only textkit that behaves this way and not other forums. Jeff, can you adjust some parameter or another for me? :D

This has absolutely no bearing on anything, but I just saw that the second paragraph of the Textkit site main page reads «... posted to the Interent here at Textkit.» Maybe the lapsus digiti could be corrected!

Monolingual Learning Resources ala Lingua Latina

Although I've received paltry welcome or replies to my posts so far, I figure it's more important to persevere with my goals than to expect instantaneous courtesy or avid assistance. Perhaps another enthusiast trying to learn multiple languages with monolingual resources will benefit from my efforts, and for their sake, I'll just keep walking.

I partially killed other threads discussing possible monolingual sources with what I presume to have been my overenthusiastic requests, so I'm ...

Hello everyone

I recently became interested in Homeric Greek and have started in Pharr's Homeric Greek: A Book for Beginners. I see that there's a forum for it so I hope I am in good company. What do Classicists think of Pharr's assertion that Homeric is a better start to learning Greek than Attic, and of the textbook in general? It seems quite dated but I haven't heard anything bad about it.

First post introduction

I'm an expat English teacher in Asia who recently has had a lot of time off due to the new year break and picked up Victor Hanson's Who Killed Homer? and it has sucked me in. It's inspired me to dabble in learning Latin (which I imagine makes more sense than trying to learn ancient Greek first) and I got a copy of Wheelock's (6th ed). I'm only at Chapter 1 because I've been ...

Hello everyone.

I'm thinking about learning koine Greek. How feasible is learning NT Greek without a good understanding of English grammar?

My name is Micheal Palmer. I am the author of Levels of Constituent Structure in New Testament Greek and a number of articles related to applying Linguistics to the study of Hellenistic Greek.

My career in Greek studies has covered both Classical and Biblical Greek. I taught Classical Greek at North Carolina State University in the early years of the new millennium. Before that I taught Hellenistic Greek at Bluefield College in Virginia. I spent ...
