Getting back up to speed

Hi everyone - some of you might have notice my lack of participation and activity on Textkit these past few weeks. I moved homes this month and with the move was a real backlog of work that I'm slowly getting on top of.

But I'm happy to say the scanner is buzzing away right now. Currently being scanned is the long overdue Ovid Reader, Sidgwick's Greek Prose Composition and also Sidgwick's Greek Verse Composition Key ...

Thrasymachus by Peckett and Munday

I'm thinking of buying this book. It sounds like an enjoyable way to learn. I'd like to get the opinions of anyone here who have (or have read) this book on whether they think it's an good book for self-study.

Also, I just want to make shure of a couple of things: Firstly, that it is for Attic Greek. And secondly, that it has a vocabulary section and no seperate dictionary is required.

Hello

Hello Everyone!

Well, I'm a total beginner at Latin. I've now got my textbooks (which I ordered through the Textkit site from Amazon), but I haven't started in on them yet. I am planning to begin this evening. I am going to try to learn it by myself, without taking an actual course, though hopefully with some of your help when I need it! I'm sure glad this website is here. Anyway, I just thought ...

a question about "non"

Hi everyone,

First, I want to say thanks for the very helpful answers on my last question. I am back with another one, which hopefully will be very simple.

I'm wondering if, when you put non before several adjectives, it only affects the one that it's right next to, or all of them, or does it depend? Here is the sentence I'm wondering about (without the long vowel marks, sorry):

Fluvii Gracia non lati et ...

Don't do anything...

I am trying to write something for a colleague's farewell card, and rather than "Don't do anything I wouldn't do", I want "Do lots of things I wouldn't".
I have 'fac multa quae non faciam'. Is this right? I'm particulary unsure about the faciam.

Link to Lombardo reading Homer's Iliad, Book I in Greek

http://wiredforbooks.org/iliad/

You can follow along if you have D.B. Monro & T.W. Allen version of the Iliad (Oxford Univ. Press). You can either listen to the entire file at once (~ 60 minutes) or select shorter segments.

There is also a link of Wilfried Stroh reading Vergil's The Aeneid in Latin; however, I have not listened to this file yet.

Rewriting exercise

In an effort to get more participation in these doodads, I've refrained from calling this one a translation exercise. Why? Because whatever is offered need not be a translation of the words, more likely a fresh rendition of the 'meaning' behind the words.

So then, try this, one and all, from a 1645 poem by Edmund Waller, Of English Verse

Poets that marble seek
Must carve in Latin or in Greek.


I'm sure that pithy ...
