What do those # mean?

Beside the column of subjects is a column indicating the author of the message, then one with a number which I think is the number of replies to this message. What does the next number represent? This is not a very important question but it must be worth knowing if someone bothered to put them there.

Pharr para 107 line2

My question is concerning the subject of dhqu/nei in <br />)Agame/mnwn ou) kixh/setai geronta para\ koi/lh|si nhusi/n, ou) ga\r dhqu/nei e\n stratw|= )Axaiw=n <br />Agamemnon will not overtake the old man by the hollow(empty?) ships, for he did not loiter in the camp of the Achaeans.<br />If I take Agamemnon as the subject of both overtake and loiter, the sentence does not make sense. It would follow logically that he did not overtake him if ...

Spinoff from BLD Ex117 Pg49 Is Ea Id

I was about to buy a Wheelcock...

On ebay, I was about to purchase a glossy Wheelock textbook. <br /><br />But then, I thought: NO! <br /><br />I read one book. One book only. <br /><br />a) "Latin For Beginners" has not only taught me everything I currently know but it has also taught me to accept Latin despite its relative difficulty. I owe all to textkit and Dr. B.L.D<br /><br />b) Even touching a Wheelcock book would be worse than adultery. ...

Wheelock - illa

Hi all,<br /><br />I'm working through my Wheelock, and have a problem with this sentence from chapter 9 'In illo libro(in that book), illa de hoc homine scribet'.<br /><br />I looked at the 'scribet' (scribo, scribere) and thought '3rd person sing' - (s/he will write), so looked for a noun or pronoun to suit. I saw 'illa' and thought nominative sing fem - 'That woman will write about this man.' But the answers took illa ...

Salvete!<br /><br />Allow me to introduce myself. I'm a self-teaching student of Latin and (eventually) Greek, with my goal being to read as much Classical Literature as I can in the original languages, from Homer to the Vulgate. I also expect much slamming of my head against a wall during this process. ;)<br /><br />I'm a Wheelock's student (and I've read the rant thread already), and I'm ...
