Naming the Flat

Salvete, Chaireteke!

I and my roommates recently moved into our new flat on campus, and we've been trying to come up with a catchy name for it -- it's already a popular hangout for others, so giving it a neat, memorable appellation would let it have a very singular identity.

It's rather unique an appartment. We're on the very top floor of our upperclassman residence hall, the sixth, and have perhaps the best view of ...

Amusing language learning errors

link

slightly more embarrassing

I thought that since so many of you here enjoy other (non-classical) languages, you might like to hear the cringeworthy efforts of those trying to get by in foreign countries.

Representing Greek: the sequel

Amazing! Fantastic! Fabulous!

I have just completed the setup of KeyMan with ClassicalGreek as described here.

I can now switch back and forth from the Roman alphabet to the Greek alphabet with a simple keyboard shortcut (ctrl+alt+z for me, but you can pick whatever you like!)

The characters are Unicode, of course, so they won't be visible to users without Unicode support.

Testing:
αβξδεφγηιξκλμνοπθρστυνωχψζ

Can you see those?

Dictonary

I was wondering if anyone knew where i could find an Attic greek dictionary on-line for free. I figure there has to be one out there somewhere, or if anyone knows of a Latin Dic.
Thank you
