Hello from Australia

Hello, fellow Greek and Latin enthusiasts.
I'm Henry from Australia. I'm still in high school (hence my username- say it in greek) and I love linguistics (hence my username- as an acronym). I, like all of you on this forum in some way or rather, have a profound fascination in the classical world and in both classical languages.
That being said, I've only studied Greek to "literature level" (reading Plato and Thucydides in class atm)- ...

The Awkward Introduction

Greetings, ye demigods of Textkit.com! This humble neophyte has been eavesdropping on your conversations since quite some time and now presents himself to be initiated into the mysteries of learning a classical language.

So here I am, ready to pester ...

Hi everyone


I don't know if you need reasons to learn something you like. I simply like latin, always have.

My goals include conversational latin and maybe reading some classical texts in the future, if I am a good latin student that is.

That's why I joined the forum and I am looking forward to starting this journey along with everyone else.

Limit of Ten Links


There is a limit of ten links for each post on Textkit. Would the moderators consider raising or abolishing the limit? In long posts about corrections of texts I needed to include links to Perseus and I was often stymied by the limit. Thanks!

I have especielly become interested in the reception and reinvention of a few specific ancient concepts and how their new uses relate to the way these concepts are used in the ancient sources.

My struggle with getting a better grasp ...

Over Thirty Years Ago: An Introduction

Greetings from Arlington, Massachusetts!

I studied Ancient Greek back in what seems an eternity ago, 1979-80, at the College of Wooster in Ohio. If I recall correctly, I had three quarters worth: in the first quarter we used what must have been a very early version of the Luschnig text (I recall that it was bound like a book but looked more typed than typeset); in quarter two we did something from the New Testament ...
