Ch. 19

Cuius libertas ab isto auctore deinde deleta est?
"Whose liberty was then destroyed by that author?"
Cuis libertatem eorum eo tempore delere coepit?
"Which man began to destroy his liberty that time?"
Qui vir fortis clarusque, de quo legisti, aetatem brevem mortemque celerem exspectabat?

Good arguing

I've seen convincing arguments in this forum, and less convincing arguments.

Most of us here are to learn or revise Latin and Greek, and we have recourse to a wealth of appropriate text books. In this particular board, would it help if we also occasionally revised our skills in 'disputation'?

Fuel prices

We started talking about fuel prices in another post, so I am going to start another topic about this. Is everone suffering ?

Some people in the remote areas are paying another 20-30 cents a litre.

Any more stories about this?

Ars Amoris etc.

I just finished reading a translation of Ars Amoris and I really liked it ( the translation, anyway). I have the one translated by James Michie in the Modern Library Classics. Could you tell me how well you liked the book and how hard it would be to read?(If you've read it, of course) After reading the translation, I got it into my head to read the original version and I want to know just ...

El Jon (Warning! Introduction inside!)

aaah, I'm new here! But thank the gods, my understanding of Latin is less than that of a Roman infant! So I think I'm good to go! haha!
Anyway... no one knows me, but I'm from CA and I've been studying latin (properly) for a couple of months now and still know basically nothing about the language... Yeah, I'm on a roll. :wink:
Well, that was my ...

Passive of Deponent Verbs

I'm having difficulty understanding how one may represent the passive of deponent verbs, if such a thing is even possible. For instance, "colonus falce utitur," is active, so how is the passive formed, if at all?

Word Game

I need a word that describes a person who is very laid back, calm and collceted, and lives a peaceful life. Something along those boundaries. I can't really think of anything.
