Nestle UBS correspond

I'm trying to examine textual differences from the 23rd and 26th editions. These are the respective texts underlying the NASB and the NASB95. I have a 26th edition and don't have the 23rd. I do however have a UBS second edition and a Nestle 16th. Does the UBS second edition corrrespond to any particular Nestle text the way the UBS 4 and the Nestle 27th correspond?

Is there an online copy of the 23rd edition? ...

participle woes

I am having some trouble with the participles (ch 23) and just wondered about a couple of things. It seems that translation is somewhat looser when dealing with the participles? The phrase
Certi fructus pacis ab territo vulgo atque senatu cupiebantur
is translated The certain benefits of peace used to be wanted by the frightened commoners and also by the senate.
I suppose I'm stuck on the idea that the perfect passive participle would mean ...

Books for study of Herodotus


In a short while I'm going to have to do some serious work on bits and pieces of Herodotus for a history course; I was wondering if anyone could reccommend a good edition to work out of. A commentary or two wouldn't go amiss either - I'd particularly be interested in any that have good references to secondary literature and/or other sources, and the kind that don't just say 'X ancient river corresponds to ...

Bonoromnium? In Catalina' Senatorem


Professor Richard Tarrant pronounces some things a bit different than what they're written as... is this normal?
for instance:
Quo usque- quusque? qu' usque?
tandem abutere- tandabutere? tand' abutere?
diu etiam- dietiam? di' etiam?
bonorum omnium? bonoromnium? bonor' omnium?

And there's a few more. It was kinda confusing me. Is he just pronouncing the Latin lazily or did Cicero pronounce it this way? Not sure.

Which Universities have the best Latin literature programs?

Does anyone know which universities have the best undergraduate Latin literature programs. I have looked at Tufts and that is probably my preferred choice so far with St. Louis University being my alternate, but I have not investigated very much.

A beginner's questions


I'm in Greek 101 and am currently using Athenaze (the assigned textbook) and Donald Mastronarde's Introduction to Attic Greek. The class is very poorly taught (learning and using accents is optional; pronounce and stress as you see fit) and I've more or less gone the self-teaching route, using the class as a review session and a pace-setter. The plan was one chapter of Athenaze per week, so I've been doing just that, although I'm ...

Writing style in Harry Potter

I was flipping through the Latin edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and I noticed that while proper nouns were capitalised, sentences were otherwise written all in lower case. Is this the style to write in Latin, at least today?

Good bookstores in San Francisco?

This is somewhat short notice - I hop on an airplane early tomorrow - but I was wondering if anyone knew of a classics-friendly used bookstore on some ignored corner of San Francisco?

I'm not expecting SF to be a secret hotbed of dead language studies, but I thought I'd ask. I'll have a few days to wander around. Apart from seeing a friend's band, and dim-sum, I have no fixed plans.

Latin vowel quantity & Radio

Hello, I'm just restarting my D'OOGE, and I just find today that for some words the textbooks and ref books give different vowel quantities.
For ex, while D'Ooge and Wheelock give "leegaatus"(I will use doubled letter to indicate a long vowel), the Vocabulaire essentiel de latin (of G. Cauquil and J.-Y. Guillaumin, Hachette) gives "legaatus", and the Dictionnaire Latin-francais of Bornecque and Cauet gives "legatus" which changes even the accent. Further more, Wheelock gives "Syraacuusae" ...
