A linka linka link

Might I suggest a thread just for posting links to sites or pages we've found useful or simply interesting in our studies?<br /><br />Ideally such a thread would consist of mainly the links and brief notes on why the link-er (poster?) found it interesting or useful rather than endless "I thought it was great" v. "I thought it was dreadful" discussions.<br /><br />The links might be to language sites, dictionaries, texts, or cultural information. <br ...

What do those # mean?

Beside the column of subjects is a column indicating the author of the message, then one with a number which I think is the number of replies to this message. What does the next number represent? This is not a very important question but it must be worth knowing if someone bothered to put them there.

Spinoff from BLD Ex117 Pg49 Is Ea Id

Just moving my reply to the Open Board since it's off topic. Wouldn't want to see the wrath of our Warden... ;)<br /><br /><br />See - American TV convinced me that canadians were worthless...I should stop, like many others should, believing everything that I watch on T.V! <br /><br />I've never seen "Bowling for Columbine".<br /><br />What did you see on American TV which ...

On ebay, I was about to purchase a glossy Wheelock textbook. <br /><br />But then, I thought: NO! <br /><br />I read one book.

I owe all to textkit and Dr. B.L.D<br /><br />b) Even touching a Wheelcock book would be worse than adultery. ...

Salvete!<br /><br />Allow me to introduce myself. I'm a self-teaching student of Latin and (eventually) Greek, with my goal being to read as much Classical Literature as I can in the original languages, from Homer to the Vulgate. I also expect much slamming of my head against a wall during this process. ;)<br /><br />I'm a Wheelock's student (and I've read the rant thread already), and I'm ...

We're getting restless

I notice my Latin brethren getting anxious, seeing that the Greeks now have two fora, while the Romans have but one. The Latin forum is also much larger... :o<br /><br />Too bad there aren't as many people familiar with the other brands of Latin...
