Hi and a Translation Q

Hello - I just registered and am just beginning to learn Greek. As in I just started this week.

I do have an off-topic question that, I suspect, in some months of years I might be able to answer myself, should study progress well, but am hoping someone could provide insight at present ... how would one translate the following into English?

Δικαια Υποθηκη

Greetings from Hylander/Qimmik

I've posted on this site many times using the name Qimmik. I've decided to change my user name to Hylander.

Qimmik was the name of my dog, whom I had to put to sleep in January of this year. "Qimmik" is an approximation to the word for "dog" in the Inuit language. My dog Qimmik was a Siberian husky. I wanted to give him an Arctic name, but the word for "dog" in the language ...

Ancient Greek Pronunciation

Hi, I'm a total beginner and I would like to know how to pronounce a frase in ancient greek I'm getting tattooed next week:


Could anyone help me with that? A phonetic version would be great, a recording even better.

Gratias maximas tibi ago!

Just by way of introduction- I'm not an academic, but learned Homeric Greek in school years ago, and have kept up with it over the years on and off. Hope I have something useful to offer on occasion, and I've enjoyed reading what's on the site already.

Hi all;

My name is John Hadwin. I started trying to take the Bible seriously a few years back and have recently come to the conclusion that I will need to know Koine Greek. After learning a little about how the language works, I began trying to translate some verses that were troubling me out of the Textus Receptus found in Blue Letter Bible. The problem I hope to address by learning more about Koine ...

Early Modern Italian (?) in relation to Latin (reading)

I hope this is not too off-topic for this section of the forum.

I introduced myself a couple years ago and got apparently solid advice on returning to Latin and getting started with Greek -- advice that I admit I have done little with. Excuses, excuses.

I am here to ask if anyone knows of resources that would be helpful for reading what I guess is Early Modern Italian - Leonardo, to be specific. I ...

Just by way of introduction, I am not an academic but learned Howeric Greek in school and have read on and off for many years now. In Il. 21 right now and Ach. dispassionate manner as he makes piles of hamburger out of the Trojans is a little unsettling. Anyway glad I found this forum because if I start talking about the differences between uses of the optative and subjunctive to any of my family ...

I'm new here!

I'm so glad to have found this forum. I've wanted to learn Latin for a while now, and have finally gotten Wheelock's Latin, 7th ed., and am on my way. I'm looking forward to "meeting" others who are also interested in Latin. :D

Hi textkit

my name is Elisabeth and I'm doing a Classics degree at the Open University in the UK, this is my final year.
I'm learning both Latin and Greek (intermediate levels) and found this forum because I was looking for a key to Latin Sentence & Idiom which we will be using on my Latin course.
This seems a great resource I'm more of a Greek-ophile than a Latinist I must admit, but next year ...

spam account?

The account africa has made a single post and it does look as if it was created simply to provide a link to an off topic film site:
