Introduction and announcement of a Mounce study group

First, I'd like to briefly introduce myself. I've been trying to work my way through Mounce. I love this textbook. If anybody ever said you can't write a combination devotional/language textbook, I think Mounce has proven them wrong (just as Wayne Grudem has shown you can produce a devotional systematic theology).

In January 2003 I started a free on-line study group doing Mounce. Unfortunately, due to dropoff in attendance as well as my own job ...

Composition Books - thumbs up or thumbs down

I thought I would start off a new thread to hopefully get minds back onto more sutiable 'open board' discussions...

With the posting of North and Hillard's Latin Prose Composition my mind is once again on composition books and their current and historical use in Greek and Latin educations.

I would be curious to know more about how and where composition books are currently used in schools. I would think that from about 1885 to ...

Hi folks:

Saddam Caught

Watching the news I see that the US has caught Saddam Hussein.

One of the US spokesmen said at the beginning of his speech, "We got him". It reminded me of Cicero's speech which the orator began, "They're dead." :)

The Latin Project

I would like to announce the opening of my website along with the first program I have created, the noun paradigm generator. By simple specifying the principle parts, the generator will construct the entire declension in all forms (and yes, it does count syllables to account for the genitive pl. 3rd declension):

Noun Paradigm Generator:

Hopefully this will be useful for someone out there. The next two projects are generators for ...

complete SPIonic key map

hi guys, everyone typing in greek might already have a copy of something like this, but just in case, here's a list of everything in the SPIonic font:

http://www.bsw.org/fonts/SPIonic.htm

note in particular that there's 2 versions for all accents, combinations of accents, &c: one for narrow letters (like iota) and one for wide characters (like omega). so e.g. you'd always use ~, not =, over omega. also the combinations ...

Can't contain my curiosity ;)

An introduction and a question.

I stumbled upon this forum a few days ago and I must say that I am pleased with what I see. At first, however, I was not too interested in coming to such a small forum, but then again, I just made the posting population one man higher, no?

Well I’m not overly good at introductions, so I will just throw out some information.

I am but 16 years of age as of November 23, ...
