Yes?

Why does Latin not have an emphatic yes or no? And how is it that Spanish and French do have these words?

definite article with names

Hello, I have a very basic question. I'm not actually learning Greek, I'm just using Perseus to do some research and I've come across a Greek usage that I want to check.

What does it mean when the definite article is used with a name? Specifically, I was looking for instances of the name *)/arghn (Argen) and found two different usages. One was the name for one of the kyklopes, along with Brontes and Steropes. ...

Teaching Latin Suggestions

Ok, I'm going to teach someone Latin, I'll probably be using Ecce Romani (I own the collection) but in a hurried pace, and then move on to Eutropius. Sounds good? What about dollars? $15 American sounds OK? Any suggestions?

Can this be a correct translation?

Free Vocab Program.

There is a cool vocab program available for Greek, Hebrew, and a few other languages. It includes modules for Mounce. You can also create new modules in almost any language. The website is: http://www.aireville.fsnet.co.uk/vocabworks/.
Also, I am currently working on a project to create Greek individual audio files, with one WAV file for each word. Anyone who is interested in helping should visit: http://www.dhq.nu/koinegreek/ ...

Translation Q: Choice of Heracles

I need a bit of help getting the sense of the following: Here's a perseus link to the text if context is needed.
(Xen. Memorobilia. ) . It is 2.1.25 in Perseus.


A charming and rather beautiful mysterious woman had just promised Hercules a life of softness,ease and luxury if he befriends her.

Then comes this:

followed by something like "do not be ...
