A Classical Language Learning Forum

I'm in London!


I moved into university halls on Saturday and just got my internet connection sorted out last night, so now I have internet.
Hehehe, I have to run to some meeting with the tutors in a few minutes, but I'll post more later when I have time too :wink: .

Je viens d'obtenir dix-sept ans

Today is my birthday. Sweet seventeen. Not quite eighteen.

EDIT : This is also my 200th post, making me a Textkit Fan rather than a mere Textkit member.

EDIT 2 : It has been exactly one year since this original post. Guess what?

Latin Literature

Does anyone know of a site online from which I can purchase Calvin's Institutio Christianae Religionis. I have searched everywhere and cannot seem to find it. I was also wondering whether anyone knew of some mail order or online catalogs in which Latin literature is available which is not abridged or merely exerpts. I want texts which contain the entirety of the work in accurate form.

REading Homer

how close do you think this reading is to the real accent of the ancients?


I am trying to learn but I don't sound anything like this fellow, and I am trying to stress the accents.

tmesis in homer

hi, i just read that preverbs are already appended to their verbs in mycenean (i.e. pre-homeric) greek, e.g. a)pe/dwke, e0pide/dastoi.

(Yves Duhoux, Le système verbal grec: L'état mycénien, Proceedings of the Int. Colloq. in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Raphael Kühner's Ausführliche..., Amsterdam 1986)

does this mean that 'tmesis' common in homer (i.e. separating the preverb from the verb, often throwing the object inside, e.g. ... Iliad 1.25, e0pi\ mu=qon e1tellen) ...

Intransitive verbs and the passive voice


I am working on the passive voice right now, and I was wondering what D'Ooge means by "personal subjects" in the following:
166. Intransitive verbs, such as maturo, I hasten; habito, I dwell, do not have a passive voice with a personal subject.
Does this mean that intransitive verbs can never be in the passive voice, or that their use is very limited?

Salvete omnes

Nomen mihi Iulianus est, hic membrum novum sum. Adhuc me non introduxi, sed noniam cunctabor: duodeviginti annos natus sum et in Hollandia habito. Latinam pulcherrimam linguam esse reor, quid arbitramini?

P.S. Latinam scribere dificiliorem quam legere existimo, vos quoque?

I have the BBG text book and workbook...but my text book isn't the newest edition. Will that matter for the study group? I know sometimes they make updates with newer editions and I purchased mine in 2002.
