Groton and May Help

Hey, Im new to textkit and latin in general and just started a class about 3 months ago. I was wondering if anyone had a translation for Groton and May's 38 latin Stories for chapter 21. This is the story about the Return of the Golden Age. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

3rd person imperatives

Could please shed some light on 3rd person imperatives? I don't exactly know the meaning of it, and its difference to the subjunctive. Could someone also give me a paradigm on its formation (including the rare passive forms), please?

BLD: §145 The Dative with Adjectives

I'm having a problem with 3:

"Diana will destroy those hostile to latona."
Key: Diana inimicos Latonae delebit.
Tim: Diana eos inimicae Latonae delebit.

When I first checked this I was surprised at how far I was from the key. When this happens I usually spend some time reviewing the material until I have a full explaination. But in this case I am having a cascade of questions and I'm getting a bit boloxed up. ...

Other books relating to classics

I love everything on Textkit, but as a suggestion for new material, what about some textbooks on classical language related subjects? Book discussing various Greek and Latin authors, political situations, use of language by Caesar, Cicero etc., ancient history. It's a big help when reading ancient authors to know something about their context and what was going on at the time they were writing. I have just bought another swag of old books (I think ...

feminae pulchram, correct syntax?

I just started reading D'Ooge's Latin For Beginners and I am now on part 2.

After going thru the singular and plural section I am left to conclude that, this is a correct Latin sentence?

"feminae pulchram" meaning "women are beautiful"

I am just asking, premature as it will seem to most, is if I am headed in the right direction?

new classical pronunciation of sophocles

i just found this new reconstructed pronunciation of sophocles, electra, 1126-1170, it's not in the main menu of the "rhapsodoi" site so i didn't know it existed until today...

if anyone hasn't listened to the rhythm of greek iambic trimeter before, this is definitely worth listening to. iambic tri's rhythm was considered "most similar to normal speaking" of all the poetry metres. the greek is really nice: a classic grieving scene from one of sophocles' ...

Hi

Hi all,

I just got an interest in Latin and, well, I am just happy to have found this site.

I am fluent in English (US) and Spanish (Puerto Rico). Well... as close to fluent as I am going to get. I can still learn a lot from these two languages, but I decided to not let that stop me. :wink:

My interest in learning Latin came ...
