Le subjonctif imparfait

The french imperfect subjunctive is only used formally and in literature.

For me it is a loser of a 'tense'. French verbs for me are difficulter than latin verbs. At least in latin there is a point to everything and at least I can find the conjugations of irregular verbs' imperfect subjunctives as it is a commonly occurring subjunctive.

In french "Il fallait qu'il parlat", I wrote something like that, and my teacher thought that ...

"Thygater hemon, ..."

"The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco

A while back, somebody here (I want to say Carola) mentioned "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco ... so I eventually picked it up. It's a really good murder mystery, and I am having a difficult time putting the book down. It takes place in an Italian abbey in 1327, and the book has Latin scattered throughout the book. Very neat! The have this really cool library too!

Have any of you read ...

Notes on the Greek New Testament

I have just discovered this site, and it looks like a gold mine for anyone interested in NT Greek. Peter Misselbrook has written notes on every book, which include the text, notes on the text, and vocabulary of selected words.

Downloads are not too bad ( 1.9mb bor St Luke), and all in pdf format. :D

Greek or Latin first?

I would like to learn the classics in chronological order. My reason is that I want to be able to trace the development of ideas in the order that they appear. To do do that, it seems to me I should learn ancient Greek first. However, I am under the impression that students in the trivium generally learn Latin first and then Greek. I would definitely like to learn both. What are the pros and ...
