Odd-ball introduction


I am not quite sure why I am trying to learn Latin. Without no special gift to learn languages and being not particularly systematic I am most likely doomed to fail. Still it seems fun to me, as this is something completely different what I am doing for living. Perhaps designing LTE system and learning Latin are both speaking Greek.

BTW: Did Rome legionaries have a similar quip like S.N.A.F.U.?

Introduction: Dave Burt

Hi, I'm Dave Burt, currently studying part time at Ridley Melbourne. I finished an intro to Greek a few years ago and Hebrew last year and intend to keep growing my proficiency, but slowly because I have limited time after family, work and study commitments. Nevertheless I'm using Duolingo for modern Greek and Hebrew, and listening to audio readings (Various Koine/Reconstructed NT recordings and Haktuvim for Hebrew), and have started Buth's courses for both languages. ...

How did Monastics Learn Language

I am fascinated the methods that monastics used to learn language. As many of you probably know, Irish monastics were particularly learned. Many of them, besides their native tongue, knew Latin, Greek, and sometimes Hebrew. Is anyone familiar with the ways that they learned language?

Νικόλαος Νικολαόυ, Τεξτκὶτ θαμῶσι εὐ πράττειν

Τοὺς τῆς ἑλληνικῆς γλώττης ἐνθάδε φίλους χαιρετῶ. Νικόλαος μὲν ἐμοὶ τὸ ὄνομα, γλωττολόγος δὲ ἐμοὶ ἡ παιδεία. Εἰς τὸν Θησαυρὸν τῆς Ἑλληνικῆς Γλώττης (TLG) ἐπὶ δεκαεπτὰ ἔτη ἠργασάμην, τὸν δὲ αὐτόματον ἐκείνου τῶν λέξεων ἀναλυτὴν ἀνέπτυσσον. Ἱστολόγιον περὶ τῶν ἑλληνικῶν καὶ περὶ τῆς γλωττολογίας γράφω, ἄλλ’ οὐκ ἔξεστί μοι ἔτι ἐνθάδε τὸν σύνδεσμον κοινοποιεῖν, καθότι καινός εἰμι. Ἐκεῖ πρότινος τὴν τοῦ Δαμοίτα ὑμῶν ἐσχολίακα μετάφρασιν τῆς εἰς Γεττισβοῦργον ὁμιλίας.

Russian Natural Method

As I understand, Lingua Latina was the child of a series of monolingual readers that came out under the name of the "natural method." I have found the Spanish, Italian, English, and German versions. I have been told that there was a Russian reader, but have been unable to find it. Does anyone here know where I could find it?

Hello I am retired and enjoying my retirement. So I want to get back to what I fell in love with in High School and that's Latin. I know that a lot of it I have forgotten, looking to download on here some beginning Latin material and going from there. Also, on the Greek side of things I am studing a Biblical Greek textbook. I have some college behind me. So I do have some ...
