I have just joined and this is my introduction. My special interest is New Testament Greek which I am learning for fun. I also hope to soon begin the study of Latin. Here's to all my fellow students on this site. God Bless.

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 ...

Greetings from an Ohio State grad!

Hello all,

I'm an Ohio State engineering graduate with a great interest in learning Ecclesiastical Latin. I'm using Wheelock's Latin and am supplementing my independent study with the book Ecclesiastical, Medieval, and Neo-Latin Sentences. I'm currently in Chapter 3 of WL, so I'm fairly new as I am just now learning 2nd declension nouns. I'm particularly interested in Ecclesiastical Latin so that I can enhance my religious life and studies with Latin Church documents and ...

Hello from WA

my name is Bob. I started learning Latin about 3 years ago with the Cambridge Latin Course 4th Ed. using ebooks from iTunes. I made up to the end of Unit 3 almost to 4. Then I realized I needed more work in grammar and I started on Wheelock's made up to Chapter 20. Then I just got a little burned, out and stopped for about 4 months. Now I want to continue on. ...

Is Textkit dead, administratively?

Several times this year I tried to login to Textkit, after a long absence, and found my username+pw combination was rejected. i couldn't create a new account, because it recognized my email address as "already in use." I tried emailing Jeff Tirey, as instructed by the site, but apparently he is MIA. Last week bedwere was kind enough to send a note to the site administrators in my behalf, but I didn't hear from anyone. ...

Latin in the news(well, sort of)

link here:

Interesting read and a good repost to all those many fine people who think
The King James version is the be-all and end-all for any "real" Christian.
I can't tell you how many Baptists and other Protestants have told me
over the years they could care less, and have no idea, what a "Vulgate Bible"
or a "Septuagint" is because the King James is the only real bible.<sigh>

No hate, just saying, ...
