A Classical Language Learning Forum

Hi, my name is John

Hi, I'm a semi-retired guy who has started to learn Greek, again. I've tried before but life has always intervened(or at least that's my excuse). I'm interested in cooking, theology, and leaning Greek, and eventually Latin. I'm working through Mounce and supplementing it with Machen's text. I hope eventually to be able to both read and write Koine, and read the Septuagint and NT in the original language. Any help form others here will be ...

Ut artem Latine scribendi discam, hunc textum brevem e serie Astronomical Picture of the Day ex Anglicô in Latinum converti:


TURBO ET ARCUS PLUVIUS IN CANSIA CIVITATE

Hic prospectus sine turbone serenus aestimatus esset. Annô bismillesimô quartô (2004) venator procellarum Eric Ngyuen hunc turbonem nascentem in Cansiâ civitate diversâ luce - luce arcûs pluvii - photographavit. In hâc picturâ nubes turbonis alba de nimbô procellae obscurô descendit. Sol, qui per partem apertam caeli inspicit, ...

Verbs that take a complementary infinitive.

Hi,

Is there a name for verbs that often take an infinitive? I know the infinitive is complementary, but what would the verb be called?

For example: θελω γραφειν. δυναμαι βλεπειν.

Thanks!

Key for Elements of Latin

Hello all,

I'm looking for a copy of the Key for "Elements of Latin". For those who don't know, this is the revision of "Latin for Beginners" that D'ooge wrote in the 1920's. In many ways it is a second edition, though he felt there were enough differences to warrant the new title.

There are old posts on this forum from 2009 and earlier referring to some members having a key. There is even a ...

Bellum Gallicum 5. 44. 4 — Help!!!

Gosh, how embarrassing! Reading Latin for 20 years and stumped by Julius Caesar!

Haec cum dixisset, procedit extra munitiones QUAEQUE PARS HOSTIUM CONFERTISSIMA EST VISA inrumpit.

Obviously the translation is "where the enemy was most dense" he broke in upon."

But why is there not an ACC. construction as object of INRUMPIT? The constructions given in the mini-Lewis and Short are: quoqunque; in castra, in aciem hostium; cum telis ad sese; ...

Adjective in Koine

Please inform me if this is correct. If the adjective is preceded by the article it's attributive or substantive. If no noun follows it's substantive and functions as a noun. If the is no article preceding the adjective it's a predicate, and ἐιμί is often assumed. Is this correct?

Hi, my name is John

I'm trying to learn Koine greek. I'm using Mounce and supplementing it with Machen's text. I would appreciate all the help I can get. I'm semi-retired, have wanted to know greek for years, and have started many times only to stop. Hopefully I'll see it through this time. :)

sequence of tenses critique needed

This is from Boethius, Consolation of Philosophy, Book I, Prose section ii. The lady Philosophy has just appeared to the unhappy Boethius. Philosophy explains that in the past Boethius was a powerful student of philosophy and a strong philosophical thinker. What explains his present tearful, dispirited state of mind?

Boethius narrates, quoting the lady Philosophy:

"Sui paulisper oblitus est; recordabitur facile, si quidem nos ante cognoverit."

"He forgot himself for a little while, but ...
