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

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 ...

Do you know some site with such informations. I don't want to buy

Buck,'s book "Greek Dialects" but I want the information inside it.

New Textbook Boards

We have added several new boards to encourage learners using specific textbooks to meet and help each other.

We're hoping the new boards will encourage more targeted discussions that are easier to find and follow and also to bring in new visitors who perhaps think that Textkit is a place for learning only through public domain grammars.

So if you're using any of these books, please begin posting in the respective boards.

thanks again!

Jeff

I just wanted to formally say hello to everyone and to say how glad that this place exists. I look forward to many a winter's night in front of my computer, slogging through my D'Ooge and discussing the finer points of grammar or literature with all of you. Why not some Claudian made available some day or Ammiannus Marcellinus?
