Chairete, o anthropoi! <br /><br /> now isn't this a brilliant site about Classical tongues, and with so many interesting people from around the globe! <br /><br /> I am new in here, and hope to make most of my learning Ancient Greek, a language I always wanted to master, before moving on to discover the world of Hellas, its wisdom and celebration of man and nature. <br /><br /> Currently studying Ploutarchou - Bios ...

Prospecting in Used Bookstores....

I went cruising used bookstores this weekend to see if I might happen to trip over anything on Jeff's wish-list.... I didn't, but I did find a whole lot that wound up on bookshelves! I've been endlessly choked due to not being able to find books in Latin in new bookstores.... and here in the used bookstores I found a complete Horace (useful for upcoming Latin course), some Ovid, Pliny's letters (which I've been looking ...

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

I was about to buy a Wheelcock...

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. ...
