Reading Group

I was wondering... would there be any people interested in creating a Reading Group of Classic Literature? We could just choose a book each month, read it and discuss it, just for sheer pleasure. I assume that some people would use translations (as I would! :oops: ), but it would be great to discuss so many masterworks as there are in Greek and Latin Literature.

Does it ...

plurals of 1st declension Greek nouns

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.

I'm just looking at New Latin Grammar, and I noticed that it does not give the plural forms of the Greek nouns. Why not? Do they not come up often?

Right now, I'm most interested in Persēs (Persian). Can anyone tell me the plurals?

Persēs (-a)
Persae
Persae
Persēn (-am)
Persē (-ā)
Persa

MVLTAS GRATIAS VALETEQVE BENE.

Greeting?

Ok I've been very mad about this but...I want to know the correct word for a greeting of saying hello. I pretty sure its ave, the latin word for hail but I've also been hearing that it could be saluto. I need to please know the right answer.

Also...I need translations of the following words:

Good Bye-Vale I pretty sure
Thank You-???
How are you?
I'm good
I'm feeling bad



Any help would be greatly ...

o(ra/w or ei)/dw

The aorist active for o(ra/w and for ei)/dw is listed as ei)=don.
Looking at the stems I would think that ei)=don belongs to ei)/dw.

I don't think ei)/dw occurs in NT Greek so it makes sence that the Koine grammars list this form under o(ra/w but why is it listed for o(ra/w in Classical Greek also, instead of just leaving a blank?

This year parents, who were univolved in the musical, raised ...

Reading Caesar's De bello Gallico

It is amazing! I mean, I have learnt Latin without continuity for a time and the other day I found an old edition (very cheap) of Caesar's De bello Gallico in Latin with some help in footnotes. I am trying a go at it... and it works! I mean, some constructions still puzzle me, but I am reading Latin. :o :lol: ...
