Hello everyone.

Recently decided to teach myself Latin, "Just for the hell of it". I've bought myself a few books, a decent latin dictionary and i've downloaded some readers from the net.
I've managed to work my way through verbs of the first declension and some basic nouns. Going ok so far, although perhaps a little slow.

Could Troy be our Trojan Horse?

After the first Lord of the Rings movie came out, the number of people wanting to learn elvish ( :roll: ) jumped significantly. Argueably, if The Lord of the Rings were originally written in elvish, that number of people would have been far higher.

Scanlon's Latin Grammar

I have been considering learning Latin with "Scanlon's Latin Grammar." It is liturgical Latin set up for reading the Missal and Breviary. Unfortuanately, I have not been able to find an answer key for it. Perhaps if you had it on line, there would be more interest in it and someone would start a group.
