Rant against Wheelock's Latin

I have read posts on the list asking about what textbooks to use, and I thought I should offer some advice in this, even at the risk of offending the partisans of Wheelock. <br /><br /> Some years ago I might have said that the book might be a good thing for a student who does not have much time to devote to Latin, because the chapters are very short, and each one presents very ...

Latin/English books

Salve,<br /><br />I am looking for books that have both the Latin and the English translation in them, specifically the Illiad and the Odyssey. I had two semesters of Latin a few years ago and I'm trying to get back into it. I have been going through some of the begginning courses, but I think it would be fun to try a book, especially since I haven't read either in quite a while. I know ...

Greek text

As time goes by I assume that we are going to need to be able to post in the Greek alphabet here; I already have posted two queries that have included transcribed Greek words. Are we going to be able to include Greek characters? Unicode? Or someother method?<br />I have SPIonic and Antioch on my machine.<br />The other alternative is to agree on a transliteration scheme.<br /><br />Any thoughts or ideas?<br /><br />yours,<br />Paul McK

multiple negatives

I'm having a problem getting multiple negatives right in my head. Am I right in thinking that if the "normal" "ou" (ouk, oukh) is in front of any other negs then the phrase is REALLY negative; if "ou" follows any other neg then they cancel each other out (like English should do!) and the phrase is positve?<br /><br />Anybody have a mnemonic to remember this?<br /><br />regards,<br />Paul McK

Hello all! I'm new to Textkit (although already it looks much better than most of the other Latin and Greek sites I've seen so far). As well, I'm new to the Classics.<br /><br />I want to learn Latin but there really are not that many good websites around which could serve as good resources. I can't take Latin in school, because Latin is not among the subjects offered in Grade Five. I don't get allowance ...

of course

Hello all,<br /><br />I'm learning Greek with the OU, and JACT Reading Greek. Can someone explain why<br />pOs gar ou;<br />is followed by the interrogative semi-colon. It's not really a question, is it? More a sort of "certe" in Latin - adverb<br /><br />Thanks for any help,<br /><br />Paul
