Learning French!

Hey everyone, I've recently begun learning Latin and I'm using Wheelock's text to assist me. Along with Latin I've been learning French, and although I'm not sure it's good to be doing two languages at the same time, I'd really like a text to assist me with this too. I know this is a Latin and Greek forum, but I'm sure some of you speak French and if you can recommend a solid text for ...

Bookstore suggestions in Rome?


I'm currently in Rome taking part in the Polis summer school in Ancient Greek, and I'm having problems finding a quality bookstore that might have classics texts such as the Italian version of Athenaze and other Vivarium Novum books. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

My name is Hefin. I've previously been a member of b-greek and on rejoining recently textkit was also recommended to me. I'm neither a little nor a big greek, but these days I'm trying to get to grips with discourse analysis / discourse grammar of Koine with particular but not exclusive application to Paul's letter to the Galatians. Hope that textkit will be a place to spur me on.

I understand the idea of caesura in scansion, but I don't understand how one recognizes it. I mean to say, when I am attempting to scan a line of poetry, how do I determine where it is. Are there certain rules or is it only by using one's ear?

Thanks for the help.

question about Greek conjunctions

I am working on a figures of speech book to be used in Biblical studies and need to better understand how conjunctions work. I've read Dana and Mantey and have looked through other grammars, but have not found what I am looking for.

question on next Greek read

Hi everyone,
I'm new to the list and have been studying on my own for 2 years. Just finished Lysias I. A big reader of the NT and LXX too. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for the next read after Lysias in Attic Greek. Looked at Xenophon; but just not that into military stuff.
Also, I have yet to find a "list" that explains common ancient greek idioms such as: oios t' ...

I'm Cody, and I am just starting to study Homeric Greek using Pharr's book. I'm a linguistics major going into my Senior year, and since I don't have many required courses left, I've decided to learn Greek and Latin. I'm doing Greek on my own, starting this summer, and starting Latin in the fall. I just wanted to say hey, and ask one quick question: what convention is used for Greek pronunciation? Pharr's book ...

Let's talk Sicily

We want to stay on a very good sandy beach in September. So far, it seems like the choices are Fontane Bianche in the east and San Vito lo Capo and Mondello in the west. And it seems like Fontane Bianche is preferable because of the warmer water. What about Giardini Naxos you ask? Well, I get the sense that the sandy part won't be the free part.

Thoughts? I know there are some Sicily ...
