Participles

Can anyone recommend a good write up on what exactly participles are (in all forms) in both English and Greek. I find that my knowledge of English grammar is terrible, and that the Greek textbook I'm using (Athenaze, and White's First Greek Book), don't offer completely satisfactory definitions or examples. Any advice? Thanks!

NeoLatin Dictionary

Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever published a neoLatin dictionary? I can't imagine many people would buy it, but it'd be an interesting curiosity. The Vatican maybe?

Timeless Values

A letter appeared in The Times. London yesterday with this title. I wonder if it could have been written by Pericles, Kleon perhaps more likely...

Salvete!

Salvete.
Filius Lunae omnibus s.p.d.
Ut scitis, iam unum annum latinae studeo. Hanc linguam perfecte non dico, sed quare mihi placeat vobiscum loqui, quod credo meditando nos melius linguas discere.
Omnia intellego quae scribitis, et legere incepi aliquos auctores.
Nescio cur nemo hic quidquam scribat. Ubi estis vos qui latine loquimini?
Latine loquamur. De qua re scribere velitis? Fabulasne habetis?

Slain by the Sword of Damocles

I have attempted to translate this and was looking for someone to bounce it off of. Please be as harsh as necessary.

This tyrant himself revealed that he was as fortunate as possible. For when a certain one of his flatterers, Damocles, was recalling his abundant rule of greatness, his abundant property, and was denying that anyone at anytime had ever been happier, Dionysius said, “You wish, therefore, O Damocles, for yourself to taste this ...

Treasure find

I found Elements of Greek by Francis Kingsley Ball at a garage sale for 50 cents. :lol:

I've never heard of it. But that's a nifty thrifty deal if you collect grammars.

Its published by Macmillan. Anyone know of this one?

Catullus 16:13

Vos, quod milia multa basiorum
legistis, male me marem putatis?


Can anyone help me with marem? It doesn't seem to be in my dictionary or in Perseus' Lewis and Short. Or possibly I'm not looking in the right place?

It seems to mean: you, because you read of many thousands of kisses, do you think I'm no ___?
