Latin's Borrowings


I was wondering if some of Latin's vocabulary is derived from another language, apart from Greek. Perhaps from something like Hebrew or Ancient Egyptian?

PDF Problem

I was just trying to download Latin Prose Composition by North and Hillard, and the PDF came up with totally blank pages. I downloaded it again just to make sure, and the same happened. It doesn't seem to happen with any of the other PDFs; maybe the new compression didn't work for the North and Hillard Composition?

Three questions

1. Can inquit (and its first- and second-person forms) be used in the past tense? Wheelock gives a present translation, but in some exercises it seems to make more sense in the past.

2. Poems often have adjectives and nouns on different lines, but the English translation is awkward in such an arrangement, if even that. I think this is for metrical or rhythmical reasons in the Latin, but I find it hard/impossible to maintain ...

Almost Back...

Just wanted to let you all know that the spring season ends officially this Memorial Day!! I"m leaving for a month's vacation this June, but I'll be back to posting (and studying!) the beginning of July, I hope.

Until then, salvete!

I was wondering if there were any good quotes from the Roman times in Latin of course that had to do with disease or medicine. Does anyone have one? Thanks.

JWW exercises, para 319, 321, 328, 330, 336, 338

further translation suggestions...

1 if we supply a market place, you will have the necessary goods
2 if he does not do these things, he will be doing wrong
3 if they (will) withdraw, Cyrus will not honour them
4 if you make him a friend, it will help/he will assist (you)
5 if we conquer, he will not ravish the country
6 therefore if you send him to Cyrus, you will have ships ...

Server move today

hi everyone, just a quick note that I'll be moving Textkit to a new server today. The move should happen pretty transparently, but if you should spot some oddities - that's why.

Problem with participles

Salvete omnes!

I found in N&H a sentence I would like to have more information about:
"They left the sick and pursued the foe". The translation uses an ablative absolute: "Aegrotis relictis...". Is it because relinquere is non-deponent? If it had been for instance "They pursued the sick and left the foe" (which makes not a lot of sense, I admit :D ), would the participle ...

kiss those massive PDF files goodbye!

I'm demoing Adobe Acrobat 6.0 to test out the much talked about (in PDF circles) adaptive compression. It's the real deal! With very little image loss PDF files can be compressed over 50%!

There is one small catch, adaptive compression required Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 and above.

I'm currently reprocessing ALL Textkit files starting with the largest and working my way down.

Smyth - Was 41 MB - now only 16 MB. All the other ...
