Continental vs. English Dipthongs for Greek

I want to take a poll of all Greek studiers (this will determine which is the best method of pronunciation for me to study), about whether or not you use the CONTINENTAL (which I have used so far) or the ENGLISH way of pronouncing the dipthongs in greek. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here are examples:

Continental
ai = "eye"
au = the "ow" in "now"
ei = the "ay" in "say" ...

Parva quaestio de grave re

Salvete omnes!

Parvo iam tempore linguam latinam discere conor. Adhuc nunc, primas exercitiones libri a North atque Hillard scriptae feci, etiam conatus sum Caesaris "De bello Civile" - in his paginis invenitum - legere. Nihilominus, dubito quin hoc modus optissimus sit, ut linguam Ciceronis bene discam. Quomodo agere debeam? Nonne temptare debeam, quam saepissime, litteras sicut ista quam legistis scribere? Quid putatis?

Gratias ago vobis pro vestris sententiis,
Matthaeus

A Question On Cicero

Hi all,

I have a slight problem with this bit of text from Cicero's 5th Phillipic (42-44):

advolabat ad urbem a Brundisio homo impotentissimus, ardens odio, animo hostili in omnis bonos cum exercitu Antonius. quid huius audaciae et sceleri poterat opponi?

I get the first part alright: Antonius, this very uncontrolled man, burning with hatred, came from Brundisium to the City in a hostile mood towards all good men with an army.

My problem is ...

qn about voter turnout in US

hi all, since i know nothing about american law or politics, and i just heard on the news that less than 50% of voters usually turn up to vote in the US, i was wondering what people thought about whether it's better for voting to be mandatory or voluntary. it's not a big issue, but i can definitely see 2 sides to it:

under a mandatory system (like ours in australia), politicians have to pander ...

benissimus nihil scit latinam

aliquis mihi nunc latine dixit "quid est nomen tibi", hic sciens me scholae tutorem et volens me probare (vel improbare). discipula mea ('ista exlex anus' cognota ab episcopo) quid ille dixisset partim extraxit, nescivit autem tibi quid esset "tibi". ille haec verba anglice ei explicavit, et tunc iterum me rogavit quid sit nomen mihi. nulla verba mihi occurrebant, minore tempore discedo. mea fides contorta erat, quae dignitas mihi manebit? ...

english to latin translation

Hi!

Would someone be able to tell me what the following phrase would be once translated into Latin:

" Do not let her drown."

It is part of a university saying and we wanted to try and translate it for part of an ongoing friend's birthday present project!

I would be really grateful for any help as its years since i studied Latin at school,

Thanks, Alex
