Genesis 1:4

Salvete!

A few months ago I had begun a translation of the first chapter of Genesis from the Vulgate. I saw something strange and never really understood why it was the way it was. Chapter 1, verse 4:

4. Viditque Deus lucem quod bona esset, et divisit Deus lucem a tenebris.


The part I'm interested is in bold. It is, I believe, a relative clause of characteristic. "And God saw the light which was good..." ...

Accents - necessary to learn in order to read?

I hope this is not too barbaric a question, but -- Mr. Pharr says that the different kinds of accents probably indicated changes in pitch but just how is not known. There then follows rule after rule for transformation of accents from one kind to the next.

I am inclined to ignore these and just worry about which syllables get stresses. This may be wrong from a philosophical standpoint, but as my goal is to ...


Confusing Lingo

Howdy, I found a troubling sentance in one of my greek books. legw ton auton logon

The translation I attempted did not make any sense. I translated it "I spoke it the word" or "a word"

The book gave me "I say the same word."

Why would that sentance mean that?

Translation Help

I'd heard a good amount about Giordano Bruno and his memory techniques, so I scrounged up an archive of some of his writings in Latin. I started out trying to read his De Umbris Idearum, but even with more than liberal use of the Words dictionary program, I found myself unable to read it, so I decided to attempt to translate it, which means that I have to at least attempt to understand the sentence ...

Yet another query...

Hi, I am confused again. This time I want to know the distinction between these two phrases. legete touton ton logon Which means "you speak this word". As compared to legete ton logon First of all is that correct to say in the first place and if so would that mean "You speak 'a' word" as opposed to "You speak 'this' word".

Also what the heck does touton or toutouj ...

Carmina Natalia

Ut aliter antea dixi, carmines Natalis Latine scripsi, versos primos. Hic, Anglice, "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", aut "O Venit Media Nocte Clara" :

O venit media nocte clara,
Illvd carmen glorioso,
Ab angelos venti prae terra
Sonare lyras avro:
"In terra pax, et hominibvs
Bonae e Rege volvntatis."
In qviete mvndvs posvit,
Avdire cantar' angelis.


Scio hi versi non latinae optimae sunt, sed fortasse agunt; consilia vestra sunt gratissima.

Elisionem in verso sexto ...
