A Classical Language Learning Forum

Aeolians

I studied "Classical Societies" for a semester in high school. From what I remember*, the textbook divided Ancient Greece between Dorians and Ionians. It wasn't until I started looking at the language that I learnt there was a third race.

My question is, can anyone direct me to website that has a map showing the three races? Or, could anyone give me a basic rundown of whereabouts the Aeolians lived?





*My memory might be fuzzy. ...

Troy - The movie

You all know there's a new movie about Troy. They found a very original title: the movie is entitled Troy!
A fabulous cast, good publicity, ... what do you want more?
Maybe a good movie?

I went to see this movie. And I know there are aways little historic mistakes in this kind of movies. But mostly it does not disturb the performance. Nevertheless, after this movie I was very disapointed! And I was not ...

Graecorum librorum inopia

Today I finally received "Greek For Beginners" by L.A. Wilding.

I must say that I am disappointed. The accents are ignored and there are not even any long alpha iota upsilion markings nor are there convenient word lists before exercises.

Simple question (I think)

I have what I believe to be a pretty easy question.

I've come up with a phrase, but I'm a real amateur with Latin. I know the conjugation is rather complex so I want to make sure I have this right.

Thank you VERY much for any help!

Advanced Grammatical Questions

i am right in saying that "quo facto" is an ablative absolute with a connecting relative?
Also, why does the future subjunctive not really exist (i.e. you have to use present sujunctive and future participle?)
How could you get a passive meaning of a deponant verb, like i was persued from inesquor, insequi, insecutus sum? Or would you have to use a different verb ( i know that deponants are passive in form but active ...
