A Great Description....

I think that the thread on favorite hellenic saying may have me looking for similar things in Latin. Anyway, I'm reading some Horace at the moment - which makes for an interesting change from Cicero! - and came across a great description of the school he didn't go to.... He called it:<br /><br />"... magni<br />quo pueri magnis e centurionibus orti,<br />laevo suspensi loculos tabulamque lacerto,<br />ibant octonos referentes Idibus aeris"<br /><br />"Where big boys ...

Has anyone ever noticed how the smiley face emoticon looks incredibly evil when you highlight it?<br /><br />Try dragging the cursor over this: :)

Greek to English

Um-I'm not sure if questions belong in this part of the site, but does anyone here know of a good online dictionary for Greek, where you can type in the word and come up with a list of possible definitions in English? I had found one, but it didn't seem to work very well. <br /><br />(Jeff, if you feel that this post belongs in another part of Textkit, please feel free to move it.) ...

Am I Losing My Mind?

(Okay, there are some who would say that that happened a long time ago....)<br /><br />I could have sworn that there was a board called "Textkit News" where Jeff would post when new books went up, or other things happened on the site.... except that it's not there now, so did I imagine it?<br /><br />The reason I wonder is that I thought that that was where the new "Tutorials" area on the main menu ...

Latin Readers (was: How much do you study?)

Spinoff from "How much do you study?" in the Learning Latin forum.<br />http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic . php?t=358;start=30.<br /><br /><br /><br />and I'd just picked up this new (well, new to me....) "Odes and Epodes of Horace" and couldn't just leave it alone and go to sleep <br /><br />Ah... the thrill of a new toy! And one that comes with batteries! ;D <br />I'm looking forward to reading "real" Latin works someday. I can ...

Words - Online Translation Help

This site has been referenced on several occasions, so putting it here seemed a good idea:<br /><br />http://lysy2.archives.nd.edu/cgi-bin/words.exe<br /><br />It is an online (and down-loadable) translation site - type in the Word In Question, and a list of possible definitions come back.<br /><br />Kilmeny

My Motto

I just wanted to share "My Motto" with you...I read it somewhere, and thought it was funny, so I stuck it to the wall by the computer. It sums up my study of the Greek alphabet pretty well, even if it is written in "Latin". <br /><br />Veni, vedi, velcro. <br />I came, I saw, I stuck to it. <br /><br /> ;D<br /><br />Keesa

your favourite Hellenic maxims

<br /> Sometimes I come up with short Greek phrases, masterpieces of rhythm and condensed meaning, that even though they were first pronounced millenia ago, still can cut like a knife and whisper to me the way out to many every-day situations. <br /><br /> To me, they are, along with "grandpa Homer", the reason for which I wanted to study Greek. <br /><br /> So, give me your top 3 of Greek quotations that ...
