Latin audio Files

I have just started learning Latin and am using BLD. I am self taught and I have nowhere to hear the proper pronunciations. Hearing would help me very much in my studies. Does anyone know of any sites on the net to hear Latin pronuniations.

Thanks,

Is this right?

I'm translating from Pliny, Epistulae 9.24 (in Wheelock, page 352) and am having quite a bit of difficulty. Here's a bit of Pliny -
Bene fecisti quod libertum aliquando tibi carum reducentidbus epistulis meis in donum in animum recepisti.
And this is what I think it says:
thank you, Beloved, for the freedman who brought back my letters to youin the house of a rational soul.

thanks for any help you can give - I'm ...

Aliquo tandem modo

Hi! does anyone know how I should translate the 'tandem' in 'aliquo tandem modo' ?

I know that basically the 'aliquo modo' is 'in some way'

from the context the nearest that I have any "feel" for is where Lewis & Short offer =>


Tandem

B. In partic., in interrogative clauses, pray, pray now, now, then: quid tandem, what in the world, etc. (very freq. in class. prose):


making me think of: 'in some unknown ...

Pronunciation samples for beginners

Hello. I have come across previous posts that discuss where one can access samples of readings from classical literature, such as this one, but was wondering if anyone was aware of something more suitable for folks just starting out on their own (or for those who do not have the benefit of having some classicists to work with directly)?

In D'ooge's case (I'm assuming Wheelock and M&F would have something similar) this could consist of ...

D'ooge's "Elements of Latin" (warning: lengthy pos

Some folks inquired about my copy of this work (vs. D'ooge's "Latin for Beginners") in my introductory thread here so I spun this off as a separate response...

Slightly OT: Got this item for $6.--. What I thought was neat about it is that a 1933 Latin class signed the back inside cover...anyway back to the topic onhand.

My copy is copyright 1921 with no other printing dates, so it should be Textkit-able should the ...

Is America Going Cuckoo?

Aha, my suspicions have been confirmed. :)

A study, just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association by researchers from the World Health Organization and Harvard Medical School, indicates that there is more mental illness and insanity in the land of 'freedom fries' than other developed countries.

For example, about 26% of Americans were judged to be mentally disturbed, versus only 4% of people in ...
