Hello, all!

I am a recent college graduate ('12) who majored in Classics. Since I graduated, I have unfortunately let my Greek and Latin slip a little. Recently I decided to jump back into the fray. While searching for various resources, I found Textkit, and decided to join the community.

Two weeks ago, I started reviewing Greek. I'm working my way through good ol' Crosby and Schaeffer, the textbook from my freshman Greek class. On ...

Greetings, all — 

I stumbled across Textkit while researching something for work. I'm looking at our institution's official seal, and it has a latin phrase on it. Although I know the general meaning of it, I'm hoping someone over on the Learning Latin forum will be able to provide a translation.

I'm also really be interested in knowing the phonetic pronunciation!

Greetings, I'm New Here


I first started studying Ancient Greek many years ago at university, and have kept up a bit over the years. Last year I went back to school for fun, and got a semester of Latin (finally) under my belt and quite a lot of study in The Iliad, which has been my primary interest for many years. I am still very much interested in studying The Iliad, though I am also wanting to keep ...

My Intoductory Post

Hello Textkit members. I am a 65 year old retiree and I am dipping my foot in the water wishing to read the Bible (NT) in the original language. Having investigated the 'best' way to go about it I've come to the conclusion that learning Attic would be a more sensible approach.

I have accumulated a small library of study material on the used market of mostly Koine resources but also have gotten a copy ...

Hello, everyone!

My name's Alex, and I was a classics major in college. I graduated a few years ago, but I've been reviewing my Greek recently to prepare myself for graduate studies. I actually found this website because I was trying to find out how a particular word was accented, and then I remembered my professor talking about in class a few times. Joining seemed like a good idea, especially since I could stand to improve my ...

Biblical Greek.


I am trying to get a better understanding of the Greek used to write the New Testament.
I find many people try to twist the meaning of words in English so I think it is prudent to learn how to counter these with the true meaning from the Greek.

Hey everybody, I'm a new user and I understand that an introduction is part of the process required to keep the plebs out. My name is Ella, I'm an undergrad studying anthropology and linguistics at a university in Florida. My primary interest is in semetic languages with Hebrew demanding most of my energy, but I am taking Latin as a comparative and supplemental language and to make up for the fact that my school doesn't ...

Introducing myself, and Homer Iliad, Book 1, line191

Hello fellow lovers of Greek. I have been "doing" Greek since 2008. Before that I spent a number of years on Latin, but I have found that as you work on a new language, old skills fall away. In 2009 I studied Open University A396, passing it reasonably well at the end of the year. Since then I have continued to do classical Greek, with a year out for an introduction to the modern language ...
