Fabula de filia regia et cicere

Ok, I'll have a shot at this. It is a translation - any comments welcome: on grammar, word choice, style etc. Thanks :)

fabula de filia regia et cicere

Quondam filius regis erat; filiam regiam cupiebat, sed filiam regiam uere esse oportebat. tum in orbi terrarum universo peregrinationes sucepi, ut illam inuenisset. at ubique uitia habebant; cum filiae regiae superessent, filias regias uere fuisse non persuasus erat. ...

xai/rete w= Textkiti/oi!

Hi everyone! :)

I just joined recently because I've been teaching myself ancient Greek since this past Fall, and this board seems like a great place to learn and to practice my skills! :D So, what can I say about myself - I live in Arizona with relatives and our 3 cats, I'm 24, self employed, and am ...

"Ob" and "in"

I've noticed there seem to be a great many prefixes to Latin words that do not have their origins in prepositions; one such example which continues to baffle me is "ob-" such as in obseruare.

And another conundrum that has left me answerless is the use in Latin of the suffix "in-" to mean either a reinforcement of the root word, or its exclusion; e.g., incantare, yet inaequalitas. Indeed! the distinction becomes even less clear, ...

Independent Studying

Salvete omnes,

For the past year i have been studying both 1st year Latin with a teacher and class. I have been quite successful for my first year. Latin renewed my interest in languages. I bought Greek and Italian textbooks, so that I could study these two languages independently. I thought without a class I would work better because I could focus on my individual weaknesses. However, to my surprise my studies proved to be ...

New School Motto

The school where I work has annoyed me for the umpteenth time, so I want to come up with a motto.

Translation: Virtus in mediocrium.

Would that be correct?

Raya Returneth

Something today (chatting with Geoff kai Will Texkitwn, methinks) inspired me to pick up my Greek again - and before long I found myself back here! We'll see how long it lasts though, seeing that my current arrangement has me:
1. at work most of the day

Late intro for Sisyphus

Raya wrote:By the way, it's never too late to introduce yourself...

Ahem, well, unaccustomed as i am ... Hello, my name is Sisyphus, and ... i'm a knowledge junkie (well, "philomath" just sounded too pretentious). i simply find so many things to be fascinating.

Trouble is, i've no staying power. i've a mind like butterfly. Always had. i'm seduced by the initial learning curve you see; large returns for little effort. So as soon as it ...

I am here because I want to learn Latin. This sight is a one of the best uses of the internet that I've seen.

My daughter is 6 years old and she started learning German this year. Her mother and I started speaking spanish with her when she was 2 and she picked up on it very well. We are having trouble with German ...
