N&H Exercise 2

I have decided to try to work through N&H and stumbled at my first attempt. In exercise 2 the 5th sentence to translate is:

Do not send me to ask for peace.

The answer key has:

Ne me miseris ut pacem rogem

I had

Noli me mittere ut pacem rogem

The answer key, to me, sounds more like you should not have sent me to ask for peace, or you will not have sent me ...

I'm sorry for being so quiet. My net access could be shy for a bit longer

Let the questions begin. I'll post this to the list too, but I thought I'd put one here first.

Relative Difficulty of Classical Authors


As my knowledge of Latin and Roman culture grows, so does my interest. After obtaining the syallbi for the first three Latin courses offered at my university---unfortunately, or perhaps for the better, my degree plan and proximity to graduating does not allow me to take any of them---I see that the first work Latin students spend any appreciable time with is Caesar's "De Bello Gallico." Selected readings from this multi-volume work are the topics ...

In Matt. 6:12, part of the Lord's Prayer, the Vulgate reads, "et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimisimus debitoribus nostris." I am wondering why "debitoribus nostris" is in the dative plural. I think it could be a form of the dative of reference, but I am not sure because I thought that dimitto took the accusative.

What A Day...

It was my 17th birthday last september, and my parents decided to get me something that I really wanted, as long as I gave to them all of the money I had saved up in my room from previous birthdays, etc. What I really wanted was a Gibson Les Paul. We went to the guitar store that day. Just this past Sunday, I chose the one I wanted and we purchased it. I was thrilled, ...

A dozy question

This is probably a dozy question, but here goes.

I learnt Latin at school eons ago and I have recently started reading 'Learn Ancient Greek' by Peter Jones.

My dozy question is "will learning to speak modern Greek enable me to read ancient Greek texts?" (I'm thinking of getting a CD based course on MG to learn pronunciation)

Please excuse my ignorance on the subject.

Latin MUD


I have just found this MUD in Latin:


I don’t know if the game is good or even if the Latin within it is good. My Latin isn’t good enough (yet) to go around in that MUD but I thought it was a great idea.

Best regards,
