Charting out tenses in a time line

Latin: Pluperfect – Perfect – Imperfect – Present – Future Perfect – Future.

I’m sketchy about the Imperfect because it is a continuous action that can extend all the way back to Pluperfect, but what do you think of the placement in the time line? I’m doing this because I’m trying to make a mnemonic verb synopsis list. Pluperfect verbs would be verbs starting with the letter "A"; Perfect starts with "B; Imperfect starts with ...

Does anyone feel guilty for studying dead languages?

Do you feel guilty for studying dead languages? I just feel like poop when my mom asks me “what language is that?” I kind of lie and just say I’m doing it for fun and I’m not taking it seriously, which is still bad in of it self already because I should be studying something practical like computer science and should not be wasting my time. Luckily, I’m interested in live languages too, but that ...

Cleo's intro

So, we're asked for an intro, in its own thread.. Here it is.

I'm 38 years old (already??) stay at home mom. I used to be a software engineer, working in 3D animation software, used in special effects firms like ILM, and other Hollywood studios. So I went from glamour to diapers! My other specialisation is robotics, but I never worked in the field and I also did a year in theoretical physics in university. ...

Hi, new to Textkit

A brief introduction: a million years ago, I did Classical & Medieval Latin at Liverpool University, escaping with a "Gentleman's Degree" and, along with several of my cohort, a drink problem. That was followed up with some archaeology (south-east England in the Romano-British Period) at evening class, that involved a dig on - and under - the site of the Rose Theatre on the Thames on a very wet Saturday; I am now very much ...

A London Gem for Classicists

Unsworths Booksellers at 12 Bloomsbury St - if you're ever in London, this is *THE* bookstore to check out!

I wandered in, rather by accident, a few days ago - was heading back from the British Museum when I lost my way and pulled into the nearest shop to escape the cold. (I'm sure the Canadians here will be laughing at what I call cold weather, but after Mauritius, English winter is **freezing**.)

Users Browsing this Forum...None?

It's the funniest thing; sometimes when I'm in a forum, it will say "Users Browsing this forum: Keesa (and anyone else who happens to be on)". Other times, though, it says, "Users browsing this forum: none."

Does this mean that I don't really exist? :cry:

Mi

Today I say the English version of 'Oliver Twist' on Tv.
And I remarked that they always use the word 'mi' for 'mine' or 'my'.
In 'Keaping up appearences' they do the same.
And we also say 'milady' and sometimes also 'milord'. These words even became famous in frensh.

So, does anyone know if they are dialectical variants? Who do use them?
