contonation and mora question

If an enclitic extends the word unit, then why would a)gaqw|~ tw| not be accented as a)gaqw|& tw| since the enclitic tw| represents two morae?

Fabula primera!


This is my first-ever attempt to write a story in Latin! I'm a complete self-learner thus far in Latin and am currently attempting "Latin for Beginners", which I found on this site! I have just reached lesson #20 and I thought it would be fun if every ten lessons I wrote a story to help gauge my progress.

All criticism is heartily welcomed. I tried to do the best I could with the long ...

Eunuchus Terenti Afri

Hey all! Welcome to the new Eunuchus topic. I'm reading this work for an online free course with a leading European latinist and philologist. That's not my characterization but I do know that noster magister is very well thought of in GLL where he was once a member. The course, of course, is being given in latin.

Anyhoos, I'm glad to have found textkit because it is someplace that I can bring translation problems to. ...

Ovid and Fabia

I was reading a quick bio of Ovid (I think the preface of something I downloaded from this site) which mentioned Ovid and his 3rd wife, Fabia had a daughter who 'inherited something of his litarary ability' I assume that means there are writings attributed to her. Does anyone know her name, or if her writings still exist?

Vindolanda Tablets

Can anyone identify and explain the script used in the Vindolanda Tablets?


This has been a curiosity of mine for a while - perhaps I am blind as I cannot find any reference to what the script is on the website... I discovered this site after reading "Minimus - Starting out in Latin" Written by Barbara Bell.

Caelambulatorem Lucum patrem olim cupere, Puto.

Hi, there's probably a post about this already, but I couldn't find it if there is. Anyway, I've been advancing in Wheelock's at a reasonable rate and I'm satisfied with my progress so far, considering the fact that I am teaching myself and discipline has never been a strong point of mine, I don't have much time to study undistractedly (you'd be suprised how hard it is to study with a girlfriend hanging on you ...

Flashcards & Unicode

Has anyone else found good success with a flashcard program for vocabulary memorization?

My requirements include the ability to use handle Unicode - I'm entering words using Tavultesoft Keyman 6.2 and the Greek Classical keyboard. I'm aware that other folks use different IME's, etc., but I've gotten pretty quick at this entry. SPIonic would be OK too.

The Stackz program from Mindgate seems to be fairly reasonable, and I'm giving it a shot under the ...

Scansion, Ictus, and Accent

Lucus Eques sodalibus omnibus s.d.p.

So something's really starting to piss me off. I'm taking a class in Latin literature, and I have an assigned Latin tutor for the course (the tutoring sessions are infinitely more interesting than the class, but, as we say in Italy, meno male, could be worse). When I was first reading lines of Virgil's first Eclogue for my tutor, practicing the scansion outloud, and in the restored pronunciation (which my ...
