A Latin -Latin dictionary?

As a new member of your forum, who has been studying Latin for 3 years -and is often disappointed, even discouraged, with my slow progress -I picked up on this site because of the discussion on the availability of a Latin-Latin dictionary. Such a dictionary would be, I think, very useful in beginning to think in Latin. (As it was years ago, when I was astudent of French and got my first 'Dictionnaire Larousse'. ...

I am fan of movies showcasing about greek myths like greek gods, may I know if the movies we've watched like Clash of the Titans were exactly the same written in books?

Hello all, I'd like to introduce myself and explain my interest in this site. My name is Indra Sinha, I am a novelist currently working on a story set in the ancient world. I find myself wanting to quote sometimes from classical texts, but would rather not simply lift other people's translations (even with permission) as translation is such a personal business. I read Greek, but my pronunciation is certainly dodgy and my understanding of ...

At university I studied physics and mathematics, but I did Latin in high school in Italy over 25 years ago before moving to the UK. I can't say I ever knew it well, since even back then the teaching standards in this subject left a lot to be desired. However I never completely forgot it, and recently found out I could understand most articles on the Latin Wikipedia without much trouble, and even spot a ...

New member translating

Hello, I am a new member. I have studied Greek and Latin many years ago but I am in need of relearning. I am going to be tinkering with a translation project of an Early Christian Bible commentary and I will be seeking lots of help trying to make sense of it. Anybody who wants to get involved is more than welcome, I can sure use the help!

χαίρετε, ὦ βέλτιστοί τε καὶ βέλτισται!

My name is Orestes Papazisis. I have had a love affair with the Classics from a very tender age, and it is great to be able to talk with with people that share this enthusiasm.
A little about myself: I was born in Thessalonika, Greece, and emigrated to the USA when I was 3y/o.
Now, in my late 40's, I am back in Greece, likely to stay. I did my undergrad work at the ...


Hey, I'm Phoebus Apollo. I will be starting my Classics degree at Oxford Uni this October. I have done A level Latin, and have just started learning Ancient Greek (definitely glad I learnt Latin first!... :lol: ). Joined this site because I already have lots of questions regarding the grammar.
Thanks :)

Wow! Spoken Latin & a good documentary too!

The docu is, "Nat Geo's Battle of Phillipi".
Copious spoken Latin throughout, especially by the Antony character.

Now to be brutally frank, I probably would have trouble discerning Latin from Italian
as I am a Newbie. But still I thought heard enough "est"s and Roma versus Romani to
call it legit. Maybe the better students can confirm for me. Overall is was well done
and I enjoyed it a lot. So check it out!

Hi, Hello

So, my turn I guess.
I live in Berlin. I love animals, but I can't have a pet, so I play with strays while walking anywhere around the city. I can walk the whole day, and never get bored. I do tire, though. Especially if there's sun.
I, um, can't swim, can't cycle, or whistle.
I study philosophy and I plan to go Greece for some student exchange.
