verba grassatorum

alright, since I have had no luck in finding an online dictionary and do not have access to a paper one...

Here is my list of the specific words/terms that I am currently seeking. Can anyone help?

There are a couple for which I obviously do not want a literal translation (eg "loose cannon"), but an appropriate idomatic phrase. So be creative! (Apparently I am not ;)

Trying to Find Trajan's Dacica

As you might be able to tell from my name in the forum, I'm Romanian. Since I'm learning Latin, I want to read what Trajan wrote about the Dacians, who lived in the area that is now Romania. I found a few words from his writings on a site linked from the Latin Library. I couldn't find it on any other site, however. Does anyone know if this work is online in the original Latin ...

What do I have to look forward to?

I have ordered Mounce's book on the basics of Greek, it also has a CD that comes with it. I have not got it yet because I have ordered it off the internet and it has not come in yet.

I have been studying Greek on my own for awhile, and have even taken a little course on the internet. http://www.ibiblio.org/koine/greek/lessons/ How far along does Mounce's course take you? ...

Motto translation

Salvete amici,

A company that specialises in software to use GPS signals for accurately locating objects on the Earth has as its motto:

UBI SUMUS RE VERA

Could this be translated as "Where we are - by the true method"? (i.e. using re vera as an ablative of means?) or perhaps "Where we truly are"? (is "re vera" ever used to mean truly?) or is there a more fitting translation/interpretation?

Suggestions welcomed.

When and how Achilleus died?

In Odyssey Achilles is said to have died in Troy. And there's the description of his funeral. But there's nothing much said about the scene of his death. If he's shot on his ankle or heel, or in what situation death had come upon him to draw shadows over his eyes, there's nothing described. Where among the Greek epic poems can I find the scene of his death?
And what was Achilleus' real weak point? ...

aspirated rho

Where does the aspiration go?


i.e. Is it before, during, or after the rho?

(Rho seems hard enough to pronounce, even without the aspiration.)
