Oscar nominiations

Johnny Depp has been nominated for best actor - his first Oscar nomination :D .
Apart from that the films nominated are ones I've never heard of, except for Lord of the Rings, which I hope will win.
Any one here seen Mystic River? It's been nominated, but I know it's not even been translated into German (and probably never will be unless it wins all ...

Textkit Groups - New Site Feature

Hi Everyone,

There's a new service that I would like to announce - Textkit Groups.

Translation?

I'm sorry if this is an inappropriate place for this question. However, after searching the net, I found no other place that I could put this question to.

I'm not someone who speaks latin, or who is currently learning it (though I'd like to start sometime in the near future). For that reason, I am trying to find someone who could help me with translating someting into latin. What I would like tanslated is an ...

Gospel of Thomas: Greek, Coptic, English with interlinear

Just mentioned on classics-l, http://www.gospelthomas.com/.

Some of the sayings exist in a POxy in Greek (saying 4 for example), but all have the Coptic, with access to a very helpful analytic interlinear.

Your (least) favorite fiction books

Yes, this topic has been discussed before, but I don't think it's reached to the annoying point yet, has it?

I’m curious to know what kind of fiction you people digest (other than ancient Greek and Latin of course :)). Have your favorite works actually influenced your life? I need to really make a reading list of fiction work. I am embarrassingly way behind in the fiction ...

Latin DVDs?

Has anyone ever dubbed over a movie in Latin?
Have any movies ever been filmed in Latin?
I have books and audio clips, so I can read and listen. But I think watching people do things in Latin could really help.
Anyone know? Thanks.

Introducing myself

Having been lurking for a while, I have finally registered myself, and I should do the decent thing and say hello.

I am a lawyer in London. I learned Latin properly at high school (decades ago now), and retain an amateur interest in it, and in Roman law. I love Latin literature, and I go through periodic waves of deciding that I should read some some and mostly it comes back fairly well to me ...

News article (perhaps not "news" exactly) on Latin

At the Economist

It has the usual nonsense about the clarity and purity of Latin (whatever that might mean in a language), but is an interesting light diversion.

COPYRIGHTS- Save the whales! - uh er~ Save the Grammars!

I ran across this link today. Evidently there are forces of good working against the evil of the Sunny Bono Act. We can do something, hopefully, to gain access to a huge cache of copyrighted information if this movement picks up.
