Graecorum librorum inopia

Today I finally received "Greek For Beginners" by L.A. Wilding.

I must say that I am disappointed. The accents are ignored and there are not even any long alpha iota upsilion markings nor are there convenient word lists before exercises. Then Wilding basically tells me to truck off and read the A&M Primer, with scarce explanations in the book itself. There is also an overload of exercises. The dual is also ignored. I am impartial ...

regarding movies employing the Latin language

Many years ago I saw a movie that was scripted completely in Latin, but I cannot recall the movie title. In fact, it was so long ago that I can't even remember what it was about. It must have been made in the 1970s, I'm pretty sure I saw it during that decade.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows of any database listing movies that use Latin in the dialog. I'm interested in pedagogical ...

Argh... lost book

Last week I saw a fantastic old little book which listed all the possible endings for parts of the Greek verb and parsed them. Great I thought. I'll buy it next time when I have some money on me.

This week is was gone! NOooooooooooooooooooooo!

Does anyone know what this book is called so I can track it down?

Stephen Duffy, The Way to Greek and Xenophon's Anabasis

Last week I came across a used book from the 1950s which is a beginners edition of Anabasis, prepared by Stephen V. Duffy.

He also wrote a Greek language textbook, called "The Way to Greek." I've seen a copy, and it's quite a nice book. I'd like to get a copy for myself, but haven't seen one for sale. Any ideas?

So...anyone going to see Troy?

I'm going to view this with an open mind. I have no objections so far, because I haven't seen it. I also know that Hollywood isn't going to make a movie about the Trojan War without a Trojan Horse; I can live with that, even if it didn't happen at the same point of the war as the Iliad does.

So, pre-release thoughts, anyone? Comments? Questions? Horror stories?

Hello everyone

Hello everyone, I am a newcomer, just registered a few days ago.

This is a great board you folks have here. The participants seem to be a mix of very experienced people and new learners too. I think this kind of mixing is good for everyone.

I also like the fact that board hosts philosophical and mathematical discussions, along with the posts on grammatical and textual topics.

I studied Latin and Greek in high school ...

"Zorba the Greek" in Greek

Last week I have read Zorba the Greek(in Korean) and suddenly a wish to have a copy of it in original language(Modern Greek). But I've spent too much money to have an Icelandic-English Dictionary copied and bound, and have no courage to say to my wife that I'm going to spend another fortune to buy a book that won't help our welfare. So I would love to have a free e-text of it. Does anybody ...
