Greetings from London and Loeb Classical Library Question

Good afternoon and hello from London

I am new to the site and am looking at collecting the Loeb Classical Library. I would love some guidance as to where to start with this as there are over 500 books. The books are a gift so I am somewhat out of my depth with knowing where to start with this search. Any recommended places in London or online sites to purchase these books from and whether ...

Refreshing a language

Eleven years ago I took the last of my seven years of French instruction and was more or less fluent; however I've done nothing with it in the decade-plus since. The other day I was reading some liner notes (to Dvořák's Slavonic Dances, both sets on one LP, mirabile dictu) and noticed that the French was different from the English; I gave it a look and found that I could read maybe 3/4 of it, ...

χaῖρετε / salvēte!

I have been studying Greek with an excellent tutor here in NYC for 3 years now (he is a graduate of the "greats" program at Oxford, how lucky am I?) and have recently been working on Latin too (I maintain they're the same language just the words are different. :lol: ). Its twice the work, but also twice the fun.

In Greek we first ...

Ars transcribendi

Salvete,

I was approached concerning the subject of transcriptions. How do I transcribe texts? I started writing an answer and after a while it got rather long, so long in fact to merit placing it somewhere where others can read it as well.

How did I create transcriptions for Project Gutenberg-versions, for example the Project Gutenberg-version of Meissner's "Latin Phrase Book"? First of all, I did not create the Meissner-transcription explicitly for Project Gutenberg (PG). ...

Salvete participes!

Salvete participes!

Cum Germani, quorum propago sum, me ipsorum Lingua Joschua appellent, Iosue mihi nomen Latinum est. Habeo in animo hic aliquem, si fata non obstant, Latine colloquendi causa invenire. Mea vis dicendi, ut verum dicam, non tam bona est. Sed cito, ut puto, colloquiis frequentibus in ea proficiam. Itaque, si vobis item certum est Latine loqui discere, de proposito vestro mentionem facite!

Salvete!

Hello to all Textkit members,

I am briefly introducing myself: I have studied Latin and Greek for several years now in school and I am planning to study Classics in France (Paris-Sorbonne) next year. My favourite Latin works are Vergil's Eclogues and Aeneid, Horace's Odes and Ovid'sTristia. I quite like Seneca and Terence too, but I would not call them my favourite writers. I prefer not making any judgment about Greek authors, because I started ...

Introducing myself

Hi guys,

I first discovered Textkit several years ago when looking for Latin learning materials, and lurking since. It's been an on and off hobby for me, and right now I'm wrapping up Wheelock's Latin and beginning Mastronade's Introduction to Attic Greek. You'll see me if I have any questions about the material ;)
