A Classical Language Learning Forum

Starting a beginners' Wheelock study group.

I have just started working on Wheelock again after a fairly long absence. I am completely new, really, to Latin, even though I studied Wheelock on my own for a couple of months last Fall. I have been taking classical and koine Greek as well, and just finished a semester of an online course generously taught by Prof. Pozzi at the Univ. of Houston. Greek doesn't begin again until late August and I want to ...

Aoidoi.org triple-whammy

First, in my continuing obsession with Pindar, a commentary on Olympian 11 (thanks to chad for taking a first look at that and offering suggestions).

In order to make Pindar a little easier to read metrically - and to save myself some typing for commentaries - I have updated my Introduction to Greek Meter to include a section on Dactylo-epitrite and Pindar's aeolic practice (it's on the last three pages).

uobis gratias ago
