Good German Grammar?

Hi everyone,

I am in the beginning stages of learning German, and I was wondering if anyone knows of a good German grammar (similar to the ones found here at textkit). Also, for those of you who have studied German, what was the hardest part of learning the language? So far, the declension system seems very different from that of Greek or Latin, and the verbs, well they're just weird (strong verbs!). Nonetheless, I am ...

adjectives modifying adjectives.

Quite a while back there was a bit of a discussion to determine if adjectives can modify adjectives. (As in dark in, dark brown car.)
I think the conclusion was that adjectives do not modify adjectives.
I can't remember the reasoning and I can't find the discussion.
Actually I am not sure if the discussion took place here or if it was on a study group mailing list. I do remember that Skylax took part ...

roman comedy translations

Does anyone know of any complete online translations of either Terence or Plautus? I know Perseus has them but they take forever to read. I need to download the translation.

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.
