Voluptas effluit mea!

I just ordered my super expensive Oxford Latin Dictionary. I am so happy ;D<br /><br />Small print, large pages...<br /><br />It goes on for two pages just about the preposition "AB". It has words that most Romans didn't even know! It is the most complete source for Latin words (even more so than Perseus I think). Does anybody here know what a "phallovitrobolus" is? Or what worries me even more: why did they even need ...

Who is "the Textkit Team"?

I've seen that term used quite a few times while navigating Textkit, and I finally have to ask. Who makes up the Textkit team. Is it just Jeff and his high school helper or are there secret people behind the scenes? Is this some sort of alliance of super-powered Classicists? Just a thought...

Tribute to Glenn Hoddle!

I don't know it in latin (probably Quam homo or hominem or something - someone!) so I'll just say it in french:<br /><br />Quel homme!<br /><br /><br />Glenn Hoddle is the former manager of the England football team. He was sacked thence for his comment regarding disabled people: "You and I have arms and legs and half decent brains; because of bad karma working from another life". Debateable indeed!<br /><br /><br ...

Introduction of myself, Nancy,studying whites First Greek B

Hi, I just began using this system and I am quite new to chat rooms. I have been reading your messages and find them very helpful. I am from Toronto Canada, in my early 60's and I was first introduced to First Greek Book by White by my highschool teacher Mr.Lorne Smith. Over the years I have tried to study and often very frustrated by not remembering everything. One thing I have learned and that ...

Why does she die?

"Latin has been in decline in state schools in particular in recent years. <br /><br />"Last year a total of 10,451 students sat GCSE exams in the language in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Only 958 took Greek. "<br /><br />Why is something that increases tolerance intelligence and awareness being deleted? That goes for Greek too, but I'm not fortunate enough to be able to study that yet. <br /><br />In Wales Latin is ...

Gallic War Translation

I am currently reading a translation (because I don't possess the Latin to read it in the original yet! :( ) of Caesar's Gallic War by H.J. Edwards. This was originally printed in 1917, my edition is from 1979. I was wondering if anyone knew if this is a reputable translator or if anyone can reccomend a superbly done translation. :) ...
