Composition Exercise Number ?? + 1

Having dispatched JPII with a suitable eulogy (or two), I suppose dikh dictates that we should welcome Benedict XVI with a little something too.
Any suggestions for a metrical scheme for such a salutation, Will?

Socrates’ Logic

In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC) Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.

One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
"Before you talk to me about my student, ...

Marisa is born!


Sorry I haven't been around as often lately, I've been very busy with my little girl who was born on St Patty's day. She was 7 lbs 1 oz, and 19 inches. She is such a cutie, and she keeps me busy with those round-the-clock feeding every 2-3 hrs. I love all the cute sounds and motions she makes, and am excited and sad when they evolve. It's amazing how much she has changed ...

Lysias: Please Help

Hi all,

Please consider this piece (part 20) from Lysias' 12th speech, against Eratosthenes (I hope I got it right!):

Short and long vowels. How to know?

Salvete.

After I had finally solved my problems with the sounds of the Latin’s Alphabet (once more my thanks Luigi_Pirex) here I am again with a new problem.

How can we tell if a vowel is short or long only by the rules given in #12 of the book (page 18 of pdf).

I’m guessing (D’Ooge doesn’t mention nothing about) that in words that end with a vowel, this last vowel can be short or ...

please help with a quick sentence!

Hey everybody. I was doing my Latin homework and I came across this word: agrum. I looked it up everywhere and cannot find it. Maybe a more experienced Latin speaker would know what it could mean. I am using Oxford's Latin course, part one. The sentence is:
Flaccus agrum arat.
Flaccus is a name, and arat means to plough. But I don't know what agrum is. Thanks a bunch!

Automated Essay Marking - nunc et Latine?

Hello there,

I am working on expanding my software to include Latin as a language for automated essay marking. This marking covers both style and content.

Is there someone who has worked with building software based Latin wordbank(s)? I would like to discuss my options for building an appropriate Latin wordbank with you.

I am learning Latin part-time.

Regards,
