Hello from Arkansas

Hello, my name's Alexander and I'm from rural Arkansas. I found this site while searching for Latin and Greek language learning textbooks online. Some friends and I have decided to start a group for men, young men in our generation specifically, but open to men of all ages, and one of the things we want to do in this group is study the writings of the Greek and Roman philosophers. We also have an interest ...

περὶ τοῦ Κορδύλου


I am, first and foremost, a contributor to the English Wiktionary (under the same username). I regularly create Ancient Greek entries using Perseus, and I've registered for this forum because I too often come across phrases too difficult for me to translate.

Outside of that, my interests include programming, conlanging, linguistics, and occasionally writing.

new member from Indonesia


I live in Jakarta, Indonesia. having been self studying biblical greek for just an introductory level.
yes, my interest is the BGreek. Not sure about classical Greek yet, because I am overloaded with the "more simple koine" already. never exposed to Latin,yet... (If I can maybe I will learn it some other time on the future)

by the way, one of the reason I am picking the BGreek is due to Mounce-Wallace popularity (not ...

Greetings from Brazil

Hello there!

My name is Ivan and I'm living in Florianólipolis, Santa Catarina. I did recently the exams to enter in a degree of philosophy, on the Federal University of Santa Catarina. I was always curious about ancient traditions and cultures and now things began to happen.

Today I don't know nothing about old greek or latin and I hope to acquire some basic linguistic knowledge at first and after that, who knows? Certainly this ...

My name's Trevor Price and I've been teaching myself Latin for about a year now, using D'Ooge, and others. I've started Colbourn's "Latin Sentence and Idiom" a few weeks ago and I'm hoping I can ask questions now and then when I get stumped.

What happened to Linear B skepticism?

The more I find out about Linear B, the weirder and wackier the claims about its decipherment seem to be. For example, in the first chapters of Horrocks, we get repeated claims about the unexpected absence of expected linguistic developments. This is all very strange.

However, these sorts critiques seem explosive:

So where is the modern skepticism? I can’t ...

Hi, my name is Legion

... for I am all of me.

I'm a military history geek and by extension I have learned some Latin. I actually registered here to ask a specific question which I thought would be very easy to answer, but no one has been able to help me so far. Rather than open a thread in the Latin or Greek subforums I'll just ask my question here; I hope that's okay.

Basically, I'm looking for a ...

hi all

Hi all,
My name is Nikolaj Baranov and I was looking for a place on the internet to discuss ancient greek grammar problems, because I got some. To tell you a little about myself: I'm a college student who has some spare time and recently I decided to continue with ancient greek. I already have some knowledge from highschool so I decided to refresh it with the translation of the play Alcestis by Euripides, I ...
