Okay, who bought all the Loeb Classics?

I was devastated yesterday.
Well not really-but pretty disappointed.There is a bookshop in London specializing in classic literature called Unsworths and it's there I go to get my Loeb Classics.
Only yesterday I go in and the complete bookshelf has disappeared.What must have been well over 400 books -Greek and Latin, had been sold outright to one buyer.I didn't know one could do that!
That's perhaps £6000.
I hope they were not bought just to ...

Comparative neuter of "-ius" adjectives

Saluete, omnes! How does one form the comparative of adjectives in the neutral (or even adverbs) of words like "ebrius"?

Sic reor:

m. ebrius, ebrior, ebrissimus
f. ebria, ebrior, ebrissima
n. ebrium, ebrius, ebrissimum

ebrie, ebrius, ebrissime

Gratias uobis omnibus!

Need some help!! (Phraedus)

Hi all,

I'm trying to translate a Phraedus' text, but have no idea how I should translate the sentences in bold:

maerens propinquos contulit se in hortulos,
quos ultra paulo villa ditis
splendida erat acceptura virginem e matris sinu,
parum ampla in urbe visa quod fuerat domus.

And another one:

Asellus autem, qui solebat pauperi
Quaestum referre, stabat portae in limine.
Illum puellae casu conducunt suae,
Viae labores teneros ne laedant pedes.

I would ...

Classical languages and humor

So, I'm reading the Anabasis for class and I get to the fish worship part, and start rolling on the floor laughing. Even my roomates thought it was pretty funny.

For those of you not in the know:
"After these things, Cyrus marched 4 stathmoi and 20 parasangs to the Chalos River, which was a plethra in width, and full of fish, large and placid, whom the Syrians thought were gods and would not allow ...

Can anyone tell me if this makes any sort of sense? I wrote a song for my choir and thought up some lyrics from the top of my head and, that said, I'm not 100% sure about them.

In oculis tuis
Animus sedatur
Animo tuo

Ex amore tuo
Fortuna basior
Et a Venere,
Amoris Dea

In thine eyes, my soul is calmed by thy own.
Because of thy love, I am kissed by fortune and ...

Better late than never....

Hello, I am Kip from Everett, Wa. (North of Seattle). I just recently re-introduced myself to Latin after a 20 year hiatus. When I first started to learn latin my instructor said I had the "knack" for it. But, alas, the necessities of life got in the way such as the need for food and shelter and all that stuff. Now...several years later, the kids are all grown up and gone and I have more ...

Just now, after visiting Textkit.com, my firewall program told me that I had just visited not only textkit.com, but also www.edonelly.com. How did that happen?
