Another new member

Hi. I am a graduate in classics and have just started reading the Odyssey. I have also started doing north and hillard for revision and am appalled about how much I have forgotten.

Salvete!

I wish I could write a nice introduction in latin but am just starting out so boring ole' english will have to do for now.

A little background, I live in Minnesota and have taken it upon myself to learn latin. Actually my brother and I are both learning at the same time, although he has a head start. One of my goals is to be able to speak it conversationally as well as be ...

Having Trouble Getting Approved-- Mods, are you out there?

Based on Markos' post below regarding new member Thomas, I see that I am not the only one having difficulty getting a new membership approved so I can start productively contributing to this board.

I am an MDiv graduate of St. Vladimir's Orthodox Seminary in New York, and a member of the Orthodox Church (thus I use the modern pronunciation). I've been lurking around the board for quite a while, gaining a lot of insight ...

New member request

I am a Wikipedian researching 19th century life and joined because I am very interested gain familiarity with the Greek language, which is often used in the original when quoted by classical scholars of the era.

Came across two quotes (so far) in Greek, in a book which I am proofreading on the English Wikisource (a sister project of Wikipedia). I have doubts about the accuracy of the proofreading. Could anyone please help to check ...

New to the forum

Χαιρετε/Salvete,
I have been working on Latin and Greek, mostly Latin, over the past months; picking up as much as I can at the used book stores to (very slowly) peruse and translate. The most fun that I have found so far are How to Insult Abuse and Insinuate in Classical Latin and Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis. Some more traditional sources I have would be the Vulgate, Aeneis, Metamorphoseon libri, and Ιλιασ and Οδυσσεια

Seeking Greek fluency in Atlanta, excited by living language

χαίρετε φίλοι!

My name is Christopher McGarvey. I'm a Greek-learning reprobate who has studied Greek privately and in official academic settings on and off for enough years to regret the sad shape my Greek has fallen into. I first strove to teach myself from Mounce, then took several years of Greek in an Orthodox seminary, including a summer intensive in Attic Greek at the University of Chicago under Helma Dik using Mastronarde's Introduction to Attic ...

Can we try to get new member Θωμᾶς approved?

He says he has posted several times for several months and is still not approved. Can a moderator look into this? He is not (as I think the vast majority of attempted new members are?) a spammer.

thanks. I will delete this message one he is approved.

Hi and a Translation Q

Hello - I just registered and am just beginning to learn Greek. As in I just started this week.

I do have an off-topic question that, I suspect, in some months of years I might be able to answer myself, should study progress well, but am hoping someone could provide insight at present ... how would one translate the following into English?

Δικαια Υποθηκη

Best - Max
