Please take the time to comment if you detect any blatent errors or even something that is just awkward. Thanks in advance.

Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.

Omnibus est forma quam tamen multi non vidunt.

The difference between "classicists" and "lat

Hey all,

I've been thinking lately about the differences between "classicists" and "latinists". Here's what I've come up with.

A classicist is one who delves into the Greek and Latin languages that he/she might have access to the cultlural and linguistic artifacts of antiquity.

Some Dutch Help Please.

Someone gave me an old clock that has a something in old Dutch written on it. It says; NU ELCK SYN SIN.
I think it means something like; 'to each his own' but I am not sure of that. I would have expected it to have some reference to time.
Can any of my fellow Wooden-heads help me out here?
Bij voorbaat dank.

Which is more accurate for the phrase "FEAR NO EVIL" and why...

"non malum timere"

Translation Theory

There are a number of translation theories and one way is not neccessarily right when contexts are considered.

This does not take into account all the different uses of translation. Translation can be a ...
