Hello from new Textkit member

Hi All,



Here is a little background regarding my Greek interests :

I continue in my own Greek odyssey - which is to learn ancient Greek well enough to read Homer's Odyssey in Greek with some level of appreciation. I started this project 5 years ago ( ! ) and have spent most of that time circling around the beginning. [ I suspect that sight-reading of Greek sentences - ability to read aloud and pronounce ...

Salvete

I am a new member here on Textkit, and I wanted to introduce myself. I am learning Latin using Wheelocks, plus two supplementary texts: Scribblers, Sculptors, and Scribes; and another book called 38 Latin Stories. Since I work full time, I study independently, and don't really have anyone to ask questions. I joined in the hope that I could get some occasional assistance and just absorb more Latin in general. Hopefully in time I'll be ...

hey all, I noticed that Jeff needed some help moderating new users/posts so he has reinstated my mod abilities from long ago (!) and I've just spent some time going through *hundreds* of first/second posts from new users, all of which have to be approved manually because we're trying to screen out spammers!

Some of these posts have been waiting for moderation since January.

I did my best to weed out the spam and keep ...

Hello

I thought I made an introductory post but I guess not. I've been here before but can't remember anything about my account info to get back on.

I am studying Greek and Latin with an emphasis on Common Greek, and I am learning Latin using D'Ooge. I'm finding reading as much as I can even before I have learned every single grammar rule is pushing me along faster than anything else I've done previously.

I ...

Dominus Faba hic est

Dominus Faba optimis amicis novis S.P.D.

As per the requirements of the sign-up procedure, I am making my first post and intro here.

I am a Latin beginner using LLPSI. I also use Desessard and hope to get onto the Schola Latina course in September as I have an interest in spoken Latin as a means to improve reading ability.

Having browsed the archives, I see there are lots of brains worth picking here. I ...

First Post

I am beginning a PhD program in ancient history at UCLA this Fall and am required to take diagnostic exams in Greek and Latin before my first quarter starts. Thus far, I have been immersed in both grammar and reading all summer . I hope to participate in many constructive dialogues about grammar and texts, and hope to get constructive help on many translation issues. My initial question is, how are people posting Greek font ...

Greetings - Greek teacher returns to board

Greetings (this sounds like a draft notice) :D
I have not visited Textkit for several years but am now back.
I first studied Latin in 1956 and Greek in 1960.
Taught both for a few years but was distracted away from the field by business and only returned a few years ago.
I currently am coordinating 4 study groups on the GreekStudy List and coordinated a ...

Well, hello

Right now I'm studying Attic Greek in order to read the classics (and the bible- correct me if I'm wrong, but Attic Greek is close enough to Koine, right?), and just because, I mean, because I've been a language enthusiast for as long as I can remember (since ten years old, 'kay?), but I haven't really studied languages that much, just read about them (except for French, which is at an intermediate level right now, ...

comp lit / hist of sci student - new member

Hi all,

I've been a lurker for a while -- now that I'm diving into Greek this summer, thought I'd actually make an account!

I studied math and poetry as an undergrad, and I'm continuing that now reading about history of science and poetry of various sorts. I'm especially interested, besides in the ancient world, in "Early Modern" English poetry, before the "two cultures" of science and literature split. As a poet myself, and someone ...
