Re: Hello

Hello, and I am also new and my goal is to get a deeper knowledge of Greek in all its aspects.

~ Salvete ~ Hola ~

Hi. Normally I wouldn't make an introductory thread (an introductory post would be enough for me, if anything at all), since I think of them as a little too vain and self-centered, but since apparently I'll get banned if I don't make it, so here you go.

I'm some native Spanish speaker (perfectly literate in Spanish and all) from El Salvador who moved to Canada, with a very strong interest in linguistics (especially regarding the ...

Salvete omnes!

Hello everyone,

I am excited to join Textkit's online community. I have been studying Latin since high school and I love it! I am interested in learning more about the ancient world and help other members of the community who are just starting to learn Latin.

I look forward to being an active participant!

Hi everyone!

Just an intro post here. I'm very new to studying Latin and have seen this site come up several times during my searches. Looks very useful.

I wrote to Jeff to tell him that my intro post was going to be lame. However, I think that I've managed to convince him that I'm very keen on learning Latin (perhaps Greek one day too).

(from said email) Here's what I'm working on right now: ...

Salvete, omnes!

My name is Jason, though some prefer to call me Iona. (with an i, NOT AN L!)
I am a high-school student, and one of the subjects I unambitiously selected my freshman year was Latin. I didn't really expect it to explode into a love for language like it has. I like to think i'm semi-competent, at least enough to be able to identify and vaguely understand complex passages. I follow my class when ...

Greetings to All

I'm new to the textkit forum and am making my first post here in accordance with forum protocol.

I began studying Latin in high school in the mid 1990s, and I continued with the language at the University of Texas. My major was ancient history, which was a hybrid course of study between history and classics. As many do after graduating, I let my Latin skills go dormant, but a master's in medieval history at ...

introducion & greek word formation

First of all, I’d like to say hello to all of You. That’s my first post on this forum.
I’m an archaeologist by education (my specialization is zooarchaeology), classical greek is my hobby and I learn it on my own. I use Schliemann’s method, so I’m interested mostly in search for analogies between greek, protoindoeuropean and modern languages vocabulary (I also collect various dictionaries).
Recently I was thinking about greek word formation. I wanted to ...

looting of egypt's sites (Unreported World)

I have just been watching Chanel 4's Unreported World on looting of egypt's sites, during the current political problems. If you live in Britain it is still available on 4OD.
I warn you it makes very depressing viewing.

So what else do you do?

I saw a thread awhile back asking what else everyone is interested in beyond language. One thing I have been trying to learn is DSLR video and editing. I have a really nice camera (which I can barely keep in focus) and all the Adobe tools for video and audio editing.

Here's one of my first projects where I'm trying to make a better family video. It's pretty simple, yet what you see took several ...

Introducing myself


I have some experience in teaching Ancient Greek for beginners (in the Russian Orthodox Seminary in France), but I would like to continue improving my competence. So far as I undersood, it is almost a unique forum devoted to this language, at least I didn't find any other in English, French or Russian. I think this forum is a good place to discuss different philological problems, especially related to the New Testament and patristic ...
