genitive case question

In my Greek new testament book it has a practice sentance that says;

h glwssa pollwn estin aitia kakwn Meaning, "the tongue is the cause of many evils" but the translation I did was, "the tongue of many is the cause of evils."(which does not make sense anyway.)

But my question is what rules, if any, are available to let me know that pollwn goes with kakwn? Would I know that they form the phrase ...

Dictionary compilation

Is there a simple piece of software that allows one to compile a simple dictionary for print? Or even a Word macro. I did much searching, but at no avail.

COMP: gardening iambics


i'm giving it a test run and I am liking it very much. However, I'm stuck!!

I'm trying to say:

standing in the pleasant garden I
am receiving all the gifts of Apollo (i.e. sunrays)

but but but ... paradeisos has 2 short syllables at the start! But the only place where 2 short syllables can occur is at the end ...

Online Latin Courses

(I did a search of the forums but turned up nothing)

I've seen the Cambridge Latin Course online but I wonder if you know of, or can recommend, any others. Have you tried them? I can study at home and Textkit is a great resource but doing a course provides some motivation which is difficult to get as a self-study student.

How to write Greek iambics for beginners

Hi all, I've put together a beginner's guide to writing Greek iambics, which is one of the main meters used in Greek tragedies, comedies and other Greek poetry.

Do you trust Internet?

When I tried to find an answer to my question about the change fro Saturday to Sunday in Christian practices, I visited various sites in the Internet. Though they had some interesting stuff and ideas, often I became alerted because they belonged to various sects which didn’t care to hide their attitude (which one wouldn’t describe as a friendly one) towards the official Catholic doctrines. Rather, they were quite attacking Vatican and by reciting old ...

Plus Bello Gallico


I recently encountered a rather vexing sentence that I can't seem to smooth out. Welch and Duffield were supposed to be rather literal in their take on the closing chapters of Caesar's Bello Gallico - but this sentence just seems outlandish to me:

"Qua in re militum virtus admodem fuit laudanda; qui vectoriis gravibusque navigiis remigandi laborem non intermiserunt."

The first 'qua' is a connective relative that just refers to Casaer having landed his ...
