Chinese characters: Stroke order, etc.

Since there are a few here that are actually interested in Chinese, I am posting this great site up. The problem with learning Chinese characters for beginners is just not learning the proper stroke order, but the proper direction. It's difficult to show the proper stroke direction in books. One book put the numbers at the beginning edge of each stroke. It can sometimes be ambiguous. There are websites about Chinese characters but I haven't ...

Ego reveni!

Hello! I have not posted for a while because not only have I been busy, I have just recently come back from a road trip from Phoenix Arizona. My older brother is going to collage there and I helped him move. I got a lot of hours of driving in, for I drove the entire time, so I should be able to get my license now.

I think Arizona can be summed up in one ...

RANT against Stealing Site Content

My goodness! It's terrible that you would do such a thing! Why, if somebody were to contact me privately by IM, I would not be able give them copies of, oh, say, Anabasis or Homer that I already obtained in this way, thus saving them lots of time, because I would never do anything so horrid! <insert innocent angel emoticon here>


I'll be frank here, attitudes like this disappoint me. I'm not going to edit ...

Thanks

Hey all,

I hope you all have a good Jan/Feb/March and will be sure to return during the Easter holiday, when I have another five weeks ...

Aristotle's Categories

This is the only site I've found so far that has a copy of The Categories in Greek on it. There are also other Greek writers from the classical to the modern period. You need to download the pylh font for it. http://www.pe.sch.gr/books/

Now that's a first for Amazon

When I order books from Amazon I simply assume that the classics titles I'm ordering are going to be delayed, and that any other more current titles will be on my doorstep in a few days.

However, from my order yesterday, the OCT Pindar has already shipped, but the quite recent "The New Humanists: Science at the Edge" has been delayed two weeks.

Amazing.

Salvete!

Salvete, amici!

I was overjoyed when I discovered this website and its amazing forum. I love languages, but I just started Latin this past semester. Knowing Italian and German, Latin seems a beauteous synthesis of the two in some ways, bearing the Romantic loveliness of Italian, and yet retaining the delightful complexity of grammar as is also possessed by German. And yet it's a completely different tongue, with its own idiosyncrasies and organizations like nothing ...
