Young and hopeful from Poland

I`m a student from Cracow and I have Greek and Latin in my curriculum but I`m seeking for additional textbooks. My ambition is to become a translator. One of my favorite books is Anabasis, but I like also Thucydides (actually I`m writing a work about democratic citizen ideal in "Peloponesian War").

Valete!

New to Latin

I'm very much want to learn latin thoroughly, but I'm even having trouble with the beginner books on this site. Besides the beginner books on this site, does anyone know of some free audio lessons available on the internet that would work well in concert with the beginner books provided on this site? I searched google, but didn't find anything useful.

Reading after Wheelock

How well does Wheelock's Latin prepare one for reading Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic War? In other words, what grammatical things do I need to learn after completing Wheelock in order to read that work correctly?

BLD §§124-125 Conjugation fo SUM

§124

Nunc laetus es, sed nuper non laetus eras. Cur miser eras?
Key: Now you are happy, but recently you weren’t happy. Why were you sad?

I don't have "sad" as a meaning for misera; wretched, unfortunate. Is there another definition someplace that I missed?

Nunc sum apud socios meos.
Nunc laeti sumus et erimus.

Key:
Now I am with my companions. Should be among.
Now I am and will be happy. Should be plural, ...

Other classical dialects

It seems to me that Attic should be viewed as a dialect of Ionic with Dorian influences. Instead, textbooks seem to treat it like it's a language in it's own right. Does anyone here know of any textbooks that explain the Ionic and the Doric and, through them, the Attic?


Or, failing that, how can I find out more about these other dialects?

New to Classics

Hello,

You may call me Xon (pronounced Chon for those learning Greek, and Zon for those learning Latin).
I have downloaded a Latin book and a Greek book just to see what the languages are like, and have liked them. However, which is more fruitful to learn, Greek or Latin? Obviously, neither of these languages are spoken any longer. BUT, words from both of them have entered their degenerative forms (Spanish, Modern Greek, respectively). Perhaps ...

Medieval stuff!

I have a little question for the ones who are fond of medieval Latin.


qui ac alicuius ecclesiae servitium se mancipavit


I don't see what this 'ac' means here and normally se mancipare takes a dative, why is there an accusative?

If someone knows, please let me know,
thank you,

Moerus
