Measurement

Saluete! I've been wondering about which case to use with the measuring word in a sentence like, "the rampart is five feet tall," uallum quinque pedes altum est. Now, those "pedes," are those in the accusative or the nominative? I thought for sure measure words were in the accusative until I read, decem anni longus est tempus, where the "anni" clearly are in the nominative. Is it different with the measurement of time, or is ...

We had an earthquake two days ago!

it was 5.6 on the Richter Scale and the epicenter was 23 miles NNE of Dillon at 10:08 last night. It was freaky but way cool, at first I thought my dog was trying to drag the couch across the room or something but she was laying in the kitchen! I have never felt anything like it in my life! it was sort of slow, not fast like you see on tv, and it sort ...

Hello,

Does anyone know where I can find the translations for 38 Stories (often cited as a supplement to Wheelock)? If it isn't available, any Latin experts up to the task?

Am I the only one who's slow?

Fellow members: I have a problem I'm REALLY concerned about. I have studied Greek off-and -on for about 10 years (I have a B.A. in Classics), & I am now tutoring Greek a little, while completing the language teacher cert. program-and I STILL have to look up fairly common Greek verb-forms (I mean simple indicatives, & also forms of eimi-"to be")!! Is this normal? I can't help but wonder what's wrong-after all I 've seen ...

Attic -> Koine

Hi,

I plan to study Attic through a first semester intermediate level, for my BA requirements. I plan to finish Chase and Phillips then take a distance class on Attic next spring. However I am also thinking of a backup plan with Koine. Say I finish that year of Attic, but I cannot find that 201 class. Would I be able to take a 201 Koine class in the spring and pass (there are always ...

Migne's Patrologiae Cursus Completus - Latin & Greek

Ok, you asked for it.

I would like to see you scan and post Migne's Patrologiae Cursus Completus, both Latin & Greek. I cannot find them in any libraries close to me. Shouldn't take too long, there's only about 382 volumes. :shock: Ok, how about just volume 1 of the Latin to start?

Thanks,

Migne's Patrologiae Cursus Completus - Latin & Greek

Would anyone here happen to know of a library that has a set of Migne's Patrologiae Cursus Completus, both Latin and Greek?

I want the original versions, either in book or image form. I don't want the Religion and Technology Center's electronic versions because I want them uncopyrighted.

Valete,
Rusticus

Styx introduces himself

Hi, I call myself Styx Boatman. I'm presently taking up Latin and hopefully I too shall take up Classical Greek. I'm an History major (as well as a Political Science major) and I do hope that I skhall eventually be proficient enough in both tongues in order for me to specialise in Byzantine history.

Ja ne!
