Why does the 2nd sg. imperative of LU/W (lu=e) have a circumflex and of QE/LW (qe/le ) an acute?

Unit 3 Reading

I'm not sure if I translated this sentence correctly:

Ibi re'g'inam mortuam vi'dit et o'ra'vit ne' se' i'nsidia'rum da'mna'ret, sed re'gi'na neque specta'vit neque Aene'a'n audi'vit.

There he saw and spoke to the dead queen in order that she not accuse him of treachery, but the queen neither saw nor heard Aeneas.

I'm unsure if neque means neither... nor since I can't find it in the book. I even thought it meant ne' + que ...

Are Bush and Blair to blame for terrorist attacks?

edit: split from the thread on the Open Board (Emma)

A HORRIFIC tragedy.

The majority of Londoners were opposed to Blair's illegal and criminal war in Iraq. They, sadly, and not Blair and his minions, have suffered.

EQUALLY horrific is the continuous slaughter of civilians in Iraq and Afganistan by the United States government and its lap dog, the British government.

This terrorist act did not just happen: It's simply tit for tat. In ...

I am looking for members of a beginners' Wheelock group

To all newcomers--
There is a new Wheelock's 6th edition study group starting as soon as I can get ahold of members. Go to Forum/Wheelock/new members sign in.... We will use Wheelock's 6th edition and will translate the Sententiae Antiquae and the short translation at the back of each chapter. Starting with chap 3 or 4 we will also translate the Practice and Review. That's a total of roughly 30 lines every two (2) weeks. ...

Wheelock Chapter 2

Once again, just looking for advice/commentary on the translation from Wheelock. This time its chapter two.

Here's the original:
Puella mea me non amat. Vale, puella. Catullus obdurat: poeta puellam non amat, formam puellae non laudat, puellae rosas no dat, et puellam non basiat. Ira mea est magna. Obduro, mea puella--sed sine te non valeo.

and here's my translation:

My girl does not love me. Goodbye, girl! Catullus is strong: the poet does not love ...

redit elduce

I am translating passage #5 of Loci Immutati, Cicero's 'vitriolic denunciation...' I have come to a sentence that has me confused:

Line 31:

Nimium diu te imperatorem tua illa Manliana castra desiderant.

I tried this: Too long the camp desires you general your former Manlius. (miserum quidem!)

1. desiderant is third person pl., so I assume castra is the subject, but the subject may be implied and castra is an object.
2. Is tua paired ...

Latin to Greek translation help

Hi, I am trying to translate the quote from St Augustine, 'ama et fac quod vis' into classical Greek (in English this could be rendered as 'love and do what you will'). Can someone help me translate this? I am having trouble figuring out the correct word for 'do' and for 'will'. Thanks in advance.

unit one - corrections to the PDF

I just got my M&F copy and am very excited with it.
I just finished all exercises from unit one in this night, and noticed some differences between my work and the one available as PDF here.

These are what I think to be corrections to the PDF:
drill.i.11 - did you used to scare the crowd? I did not.
drill.ii.b.3 - féminárum
drill.ii.b.8 - timébant
preliminary-ex.ii.b.5 - sunt
exercises.ii.6 - féminas in patriá uidére ...

For members of pharr-b, pharr-c, white-a, ktl

Hi,

I have begun work on a more comprehensive GTSS document. It remains a work in progress; I will continue to update it in the coming weeks. However, it contains enough useful stuff that I should point it out at http://www.greekgeek.org/gtss.pdf or http://www.greekgeek.org/gtss.doc.

Cordially,

Paul

Ancient Greek Alive

Hi! Hope this isn't an inappropriate question: what do you guys think about Saffire's "Ancient Greek Alive" as a beginning textbook? I tutor Greek sometimes & I'm really concerned to get a text that is good on the grammar, but also interesting. "A.G.A." seems pretty sound, & I love the bright (unstuffy) approach, and the "conversational" beginning. However, the use of real Greek texts & authors in the book is limited. May I ask (if ...
