e^ d' he^

Hi everybody:
I' interested in the literal meaning of the locution in the subj., as found, e.g. in Plato, _Symp._ 206 a3, 205 c4.
The meaning is not a problem (translations are available), but the exact power of the "he^" here (as accented) puzzles me. None of its meanings that I could find in the dictionaries seems to fit.
Many thanks for any suggestions.

Love Power Strength...

I'm trying to make myself a pair of pants, and I want the Latin words for Love Power and Strength to be on them. The only problem is that I don't know what they are. I also can't figure out another good word to go with those, I'd like them to be symetrical, but knowledge doesn't seem to fit... If anyone can help me, I'd be really appreciative.

Aoidoi - Haiku

After looking around on Will's website for a while I saw this haiku page. It seemed really interesting and I thought I'd give it a shot. The problem is I'm not too sure on my scansion. Since nothing teaches a lesson like public ridicule I thought I'd just post what I've come up with and let you guys walz over me. I've attempted to stick to this meter:

The high schoolers' grasp of first amendment.

is deplorable.

http://www.knightfdn.org/default.asp?st ... amend.html

Among its findings:
* Nearly three-fourths of high school students either do not know how they feel about the First Amendment or admit they take it for granted.
* Seventy-five percent erroneously think flag burning is illegal.
* Half believe the government can censor the Internet.
* More than a third think the First Amendment goes too far in the rights it guarantees.

Any Latin teachers out there?

I need to find a book on Latin teaching methodology to use as a text book in one of my Curriculum classes, so that I can get my Latin Teaching Certification. Any recommendations?

Giving the/a book

In one of the transtlations for Wheelock ch. 7, the book gives as translation for Homini litteras dabunt "They will give a letter to the man". I came up with "They will give the man the letter".

Aside from word order, the difference between the book's translation and my translation is the definite article "the" vs. the indefinite article "a".

In earlier chapters the advice was to insert a the or an a as context ...

The value of myth

Hi all,

I am a new forum member, and will soon be departing for university to read Classical Studies. One of the universities I am applying to has asked me to write an essay on a historical topic, I have chosen myth. The reason I have posted my thoughts on this forum is because I would like some feedback regarding them, unfortunately my friends do not enjoy discussing anything meaningful to me. Ok so here ...
