To Elucubrator: on Internet Architecture

Hi, Sebastian,<br /><br />It was not until today that I see your reply, because my computer was occupied by a big computation task for several days. :P <br /><br />Let me try to give a rough explanation on Internet Architecture.

Representing Greek - Font Notes for New Users

Textkit has inherited the broader problems in presenting Greek text on web pages. In the past, we used SPIonic, but now we use Unicode.


You will find SPIonic in older posts using Greek, and in a few of the Greek Tutorials, so you may want to install that font if you haven't already had a reason to do so.

Unfortunately, one past upgrade of the Forum software messed up all the Font tags, so ...

Litteras Ciceroni

I've started reading Cicero's letters and they remind me of a join the dots game, where the numbers are slightly faded; you're not completely sure where you should go for the next one.<br /><br />I'm seeing that when a sentence would be translated back to English, often you have to jump to the end of three or four lines just to get the frist word. Is this symptomatic of most Latin texts? t<br /><br />I ...

I've been doing my "homework" this morning and all was going swimmingly until I checked the answer to this translation...<br /><br />We would shout and stop the slaves conversing.<br /><br />The answer book gives e)pauo/meqa for "stop", I had quite happily put e)pauomen<br /><br />In simple words the middle voice is suggested. Why? We (being nominative) act on the slaves in stopping. I believe the middle is when you act on yourself.<br /><br /><br />I ...

Latin Poetry

Decided to give you this link that I ran into a long time ago.<br />He has readings of Latin poetry in meter. It is some of the best I have heard. And goes along with what I have felt about Latin poetry and have learned about oral reading. Latin as it was spoken was probably closer to the Modern Romance Languages. The harsh sounds that we first learn today came about because they were given ...
