Hello and questions on transcribing PDFs

Hi everyone,

I'm a student of Latin and ancient Greek. I'm still a beginner but I've become especially interested in Latin composition and post-classical Latin--to borrow someone else's words, they are what make me "tic taec toc." For a while I've known about Textkit and its resources have helped me a lot. Now I'm excited to be a part of the community and talk to people who won't think I'm nuts because I read children's ...

Hello one and all

My name is Neil and this is my first post. I'm an adult learner who has developed an 'inquisitive interest' in languages over the last few years. I'm very much a beginner in Ancient Greek, having been learning for about 5 months. I have so far completed John Taylor's "Greek to GCSE" and "Greek beyond GCSE" textbooks. I'm continuing my learning by reading various 'unseen translations' and will attempt soon to embark upon Xenophon's Anabasis. ...

MP3 / OGG attachments

Please allow us to upload MP3 / OGG attachments when it comes to posting our pronunciation (or teaching somebody by this means). Otherwise we have to resort to various third party servers and they are not always reliable and the files won't stay there forever (the forum will become outdated).

The same applies probably for posting relevant pictures (somebody has made a photo of some old script and would like our help in its translation ...

New to the forum

I graduated from LSU in Dec., 1971 with a BA in Classical Languages. I have little used it since. Now, at age 66 and retired, I would like to reacquaint myself with my former studies. I look forward to being a member of the Textkit community.

Hi. Just found this site. I have worked through Mastronarde and am now on Lesson X of Pharr / Wright.
In three more lessons I will be starting on selections from the Iliad (I prefer the Odyssey)! I am retired and devoting myself to antiquity for the simple reason that I enjoy it. But it would be nice to contact fellow antiquaries and share the pleasure.

I visited Pompeii and Herculaneum when young, also Ephesus ...

I earned a BA in Classical Languages from LSU, graduating in Dec., 1971. Life led me in a different direction, and I now find myself age 66 wanting to reacquaint myself with my studies. I may not be a regular poster, since I have other interests and obligations, but I would like to participate as much as possible.

I want to thank Mr. Tirey and whomever else is involved in this endeavour for this opportunity. ...
