oh my goodness

Apparently I haven't visited textkit in a WHOLE MONTH!

Where is my head???

Ok, I know where it is. Let me tell you. :)

On February 3 of this year I made a huge, life-changing decision (no, I am not getting married!).

I am going to run a marathon. In Rome. March 26, 2006. The race starts and ends at the Colisseum and runs past all the major landmarks in Rome. I am extremely excited--I ...

It's excellent, and you can follow along with the narrator. I cannot vouch to the accuracy of the accents, but they certainly sounded good to me.

Translation of grammatical terminology

Every now and then I have difficulty matching the English grammatical terminology with what I know from Dutch.

Is there anyone who can recommend a book or site where this terminology is translated into other languages? English - Italian - Dutch would be of most interest to me.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Must not and don't have to

How does Latin distinguish between "You must not do this" and "You do not have to do this"?

The former is well covered by the text book's I've used (use oportet, debere, gerundive).

The only example of the latter I've seen is this, from Domus Anguli Puensis:

Vento iam a tergo, clamare non oportuit.
The wind was behind them now, so they didn't have to shout.

In this case the sense "must not" obviously would ...

Use of "-que" vs. "et"

Are they interchangeable? Do they have different contexts? It seems like the classical authors use "-que" a lot more than "et"

Latin at Wikipedia.org: Is it any good?

http://la.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pagina_prima, There is a Latin version of the Free Encyclopedia, Wikipedia in Latin. Can someone tell me if the Latin there is "proper Latin" because if afraid that if it isn't and I read too much there, I might assimilate some of the poor Latin.

Any other good Latin forums?

Are there any other good Latin forums like this one? There's one on phrasebase, but it's pretty much inactive.

I propose a new conjunction in the english language, sec which is the inverse of reason. It might bring us closer to latin.


I went to town cos I was bored and I had nothing else to do
