Frustration

I was trying to find some grammars (for many languages that I shall not name) half as good as anything here, but alas! there were no lovely .pdf old books with great grammar! No exercises, vocabulary in each book! No! None whatsoever!

If any one know where there are some like textkit, do tell.

But I fear that textkit is unfourtunately unique and alone great.

An update on school :0

It was funny the other day my physics teacher was talking about space and the months and tried a mangled 1-10 latin numbers. I just sat there while the girls at the front were laughing and saying "ask Aramique he loves latin...ha ha (latin is for dull old guys)"
I was laughing at him and writing the ordinals up to 20 in my physics book for no apparent reason.
Mwah I'm going to fail physics, ...

Favorite Greek or Latin moment in the movies

Just thought I'd throw out a fun question for Friday. :D I can't think of too many, the Latin moment that comes to mind is in the beginning of "Dead Poets Society" where some instructor is going through the declensions of agricola. Not exactly a favorite moment, just the one that comes to mind. :?

Do you have ...

Greetings to all!

I just stumbled across this site a week or two ago, and have really enjoyed going through the old posts as well as availing myself of some of the grammars in the download areas. I'm not currently enrolled in a formal Latin or Greek course at university, but rather am studying these two languages out of a longstanding interest in the classics, and a desire to read them in the original Latin ...

Newton, Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica

http://dibinst.mit.edu/BURNDY/Collectio ... ncipia.htm

I once posted this link on the Open Board. This post is just to save it from amnesia. :D

Written in neo-latin.
The maestro describes the classical physics without using calculus, in the style that reminds of Euclid's Elements.

Good English/Latin site for helping to learn Latin

Hi all!

Just FYI, when I was trying to learn Latin, one site that really helped me was www.LatinVulgate.com , especially the Proverbs section. It's a parallel Latin / English Bible site and the Proverbs book especially is especially simple to translate and read.

Anyway I'm looking now for more advanced sites that have English and Latin side by side, to help with my learning. Can someone recommend any ...

book suggestions for long flights

Okay, as some of you know I'm heading to Sydney next week for a little family fun in the sun down under style.

The flight is long. I would like to read a book about history. Something that I can read a chapter here and a chapter there.

I'm endlessly impressed with this board's collective educational insights so I'm looking for some book recommendations.

Since I'm asking, here's one of my own. If you're interested ...
