Salvēte.

Salvēte. Nōmen mihi est Kleō, discupulusque linguae Latīnae sum. Lēctiōnēs omnēs librī Wheelock's Latin iam exēgī, et quōs auxilium petunt iuvāre volō, auxiliumque cuius egeō ego accipere volō. Linguam Graecam tamen nōn didicī, sed eam mox discam. Linguam Hispānicam, Anglicam, et Albānicam quoque cognōvī. Sī Latīnē loquī aut auxilium cupitis, ego hīc vōbīs sum. Valēte, et semper amāte linguam Latīnam! Quoque mihi dīcite quam bona Latīna mea sit!

Learning old [insert language name]

Greetings,


I have considered for some time now to learn old norse, old english and old german, (not necessarily in this order, certainly not at the same time).

Can anyone recommend me some fine resources to study them? If it is not useless to mention, I am primarily interested in literature, v.g., Beowulf, the nordic sagas, Nibelungenlied.

Many thanks in advance. :D

Obligatory Introduction

Hello, all.

It was requested of me during the registration process that my first post be an introduction in this forum, so here are some highlights from my career as a Classicist:

  • I recently finished my MA in Classical Languages and am now teaching Latin I–IV at a public high school.
  • My greatest achievements include reading the entirety of Aeschylus' Agamemnon in Greek and acquiring the first two volumes of Fraenkel's commentary.
  • My favorite Latin ...

New Forum User - Grk NT Student (Self Teaching at Home)

Hello All --

I am a NT Greek Student trying to teach myself greek from home. I have read all of I John and am starting GJohn. I'm learning pronunciation by using Vasile Stancu's web site. I began my studies by using Summers Greek Grammar but quickly got overwhelmed with paradigms. So I switched to Dobsons method and then aquired other grammars just to have them around for reference. (Mounce, Robertson, Wallace, Croy, Peter Jones, ...

Taking up Latin with Reggie

Hi. My name's Greg, and I've recently returned to reading Latin with Reggie Foster by way of his OSSA book. I took Latin via Wheelock at university and, quite frankly, hated it. (I still suspect the biggest problem was my professors, but it is what it is now.) I, however, loved Latin itself, and was always disappointed that I never learned it as well as I wanted to.

I've returned to Latin with Reggie's system, ...

salvete et χαίρετε!

I heard mention of this forum in the FB group Teaching Latin for Acquisition so I thought I would check it out. I am a high school teacher of Latin and Ancient Greek. I am looking to improve my own skills in speaking the classical languages so I can do it more and better in my classes with my students. I have attended a conventiculum and a biduum to get the feel for it but ...

I joined, but then left just as quickly

I guess I joined because I was hyped up to learn Latin, even though I didn't necessarily have a profound interest in learning the language itself but more for things that used the language (fictions / games / Roman army / etc). I know boards like this are not super active because of a lack of eager learners, but if you want to read more, it is ironic what I am about to say.

I ...

Introducing myself

I was chasing up references to authentes and was linked here to a post on Alexander Rhetor. Having read through the post and very insightful and helpful comments, I decided to join up.

I have been conducting my own research into the authent- family through a new approach which separates the adjective, authentikos, derived from auto and hentes, away from an entirely different semantic family derived from auto and entea. This gives rise to the ...
