Unit Thirteen - Questions about the Exercises

Usually there is a sentence or maybe two in each unit that I simply cannot understand, but, in Unit Thirteen, there were several. I guess M & F decided that they had to raise the bar a little bit.

5. Harum sententiarum quae vera sit, deus aliqui videat.

I can't make any sense of it. Literally, it seems: "Of these opinions which be true, some god would see." What noun governs "harum sententiarum"? Is it ...

"Please allow me to introduce myself...."

:) Friends, Latinists, Greco-philes, "lend me your ears, I have not come to praise Caesar but to bury him."
My name is Christopher Shelton, I live in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I do not really know how this works, but--like swimming--once I jumped in and started writing, the words came. I have read a few of the contributions to this bulletin board and I am pleasantly surprized ...

Starting a beginners' Wheelock study group.

I have just started working on Wheelock again after a fairly long absence. I am completely new, really, to Latin, even though I studied Wheelock on my own for a couple of months last Fall. I have been taking classical and koine Greek as well, and just finished a semester of an online course generously taught by Prof. Pozzi at the Univ. of Houston. Greek doesn't begin again until late August and I want to ...

Aoidoi.org triple-whammy

First, in my continuing obsession with Pindar, a commentary on Olympian 11 (thanks to chad for taking a first look at that and offering suggestions).

In order to make Pindar a little easier to read metrically - and to save myself some typing for commentaries - I have updated my Introduction to Greek Meter to include a section on Dactylo-epitrite and Pindar's aeolic practice (it's on the last three pages).

Finally, after reading Scribes and ...

Liddell & Scott

Hi all,

I saw a very sad sight today. An old book was being criminally neglected. It was an 1872 edition of Liddell & Scott (in decent shape for being over 100 years old, I suppose), sitting in a used book store, in 80+ degree Fahrenheit temperature and very high humidity. If you want to give this book a cool, dry spot in your home, send me a message, and I could pick it up ...

paulum auxilii

saluete omnes

1) Can the 1st supine have a direct object? I want to say:

"Your poor little thing!" the old poet said and went to open the door.

"te paruum miserum!" poeta senex dixit et iuit apertum ianuam

2) How would you say "redden" when speaking of cheeks? I don't mean as a sign of shame, but of good health.

uobis gratias ago
