My girl just left me

It all began on that sack of **** valentine's day. I did not want to go out but she insisted that a restaurant full of solid food would be romantic. I had a workout on that day and also my stomach can currently handle but foods of liquid consistency. But not Br- (aq) I suppose as it's poison. In bitter sea water.

She arrived at my house wearing a shimmering top and I was just ...

Can someone help check my grammar?


I'm new to Latin. I saw a phase "Ubi Petrus, ibi ecclesia" by Ambrose and wanted to expand on it. I wanted to say "Wherever Peter is, there is the church: That is, wherever men believe what he wrote in first epistle chapter 3 verse 21, namely both that baptism is necessary to salvation and that faith is necessary to baptism, there is the church."

I translated it "Ubi Petrus, ibi ecclesia: Id ...

should the verb stems with digamma be also memorized?

Salvete Romani et Graeci!

Just dropping a quick post to say 'hi' and introduce myself briefly. I'm currently a junior in high school who is taking AP Latin Literature, and I've completely fallen in love with studying the language. I plan on majoring in Latin / the Classics in college, and it'll definitely be helpful on my way to becoming a med student.

I'm looking forward to getting to know and chat with some of ...

Hey everyone, I was wondering what you may recommend for a good classical Greek dictionary? There's a few different ones I've seen, one by James Morwood, another by Liddell-Scott, and I've heard of one by a Woodhouse (that contains a good English-Greek section). Anyways, what do you guys and gals think? Any advice? thanks!

quam hanc linguam discere?


I'm working my way through Wheelock's (up to ch. 17) by my lonesome, and also have Groten's 38 Latin Stories. I do all the supplemental excercises in the back of Wheelock's. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for further reading, drills, etc?
I'm convinced that reading is important at every step, no matter how halting my understanding may be. Are there readers that one would recommend for someone halfway through Wheelock's?

Second Declension genitive S. Q????

Hi everyone,

I have a Q. about something stated in the D'ooge text.
Nouns of the 2nd declension in "ius" and "ium" end in "i" in the genitive singular, not "ii".
I am a bit confused with this, because according to the Henle text I have used, and other texts, "ii" IS used in the genitive singular w/2nd declension nouns, such as filius, filii.
Is this a classical vs. ecclesiastical translation? I would like to ...
