Jane Austen

This is a continuation of the Jane Austen discussion from the "Pompey" thread.<br />http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic . php?t=742;start=0<br /><br /><br /><br />www.jasna.org <br /><br />That's the Jane Austen Society of North America, but they have articles and things like that, which you can enjoy regardless of where you are. (Indonesia, wasn't it?)<br /><br />Here's a site. It's a huge site, so it can be overwhelming to navigate at first.<br />http://www.pemberley.com<br /><br />This site has ...

Living Languages

I was wondering if there were any places on the Web like TextKit that were dedicated to providing electronic copies of old books in living languages, like German, French, Italian, etc. Does anybody know of such a place?

Member Names

<br />Just curious. How did you choose your Member Name? Some of you have interesting names!<br /><br />Mine is rather boring. Middle name, last initial.<br /><br />

Oooh...

Some people give up smoking. Others give up drinking. I think I'm going to give up checking Amazon.com. I've just found Wheelock's 6th edition...$14.67. (Only $14.66 more than I have right now in spending money!) I"m practically salivating.

Libraries

From Klewlis, in the post "Do you Use Book Covers"<br /><br />In north america *most* houses are wood. Only the old (or rich) ones are made of brick, and I can't think of any made of stone. Here it is about getting the houses built as quickly and cheaply as possible, so wood is the obvious choice. There's no room for expansion though if you live in the city, as you'd be running into your ...

Pompey

According to Bartleby.com, this is the day the Roman general Pompey was born. <br /><br />How do they know exactly which day he was born?

Ancient Greek music

This site is excellent http://www.oeaw.ac.at/kal/agm/<br />Someone has already mentioned a part of this site here, the Classical pronunciation I think, but not the music :). Just listen to "Demodokos' song about Ares and Aphrodite", played on the four-stringed phorminx, under the Homeric singing section. It's quite mysterious :) I wish I knew Greek ...

Episcopus going to Oxford

Not that it's very important but it's cool anyhow. I thought that this was going a little off-topic.<br /><br />However for me I must learn faster. I am going on a "elite pupils [from deprived area!)" (but we're not really elite) visit to Oxford University. It is mainly à faire avec English with the English head's being very zealous; however I plan to run off and lose myself in normal fashion to the Latin place. ...
