I've got a list of enclitics from a book available here (bennett's "a latin grammar") and this is it:

-que, -ne, -ue, -ce, -met, -dum, -cum

I've searched these fora and the web, and got no explanations except for the -que and -ne particles, and loosely for the -ue. could someone show me examples using each one of those enclitics, and explain their functions to me?

Numeralia Graeca: 20307?

xai/rete w)= so/foi

I am speculating about how the Greeks wrote numbers. My grammar is not much help in that regard.

I understand they used the letters, but I am not quite sure how the system works. Are Greek numeralia like the Roman numeralia?

Specifically, I want to write 20.307. What would that be?

Thanks :D

uncial latin script font


I'm trying to make a font that resembles latin uncial script. I've only seen some pictures of hand-copied scripts, and in none of them did I see periods and commas. I ask myself why did Greek have punctuations and lower-case letters and the Romans did not. Anyway, if anyone knows how were Roman's punctuations drawn, please tell me.

Right now all I have is what can be seen in the pictures below. The commas ...

Hello all! I'm Emily. I had no idea that such a wonderful thing as a website+forum about Latin existed, so I was very happy to be given a link to this place.

I've been learning Latin for nearly a year and a half now, and a week today I'm taking a Higher exam in it. (Scottish equivalent of English A-levels. Big exam, anyway.) For it, I've studied parts of Cicero's In Verrem V and parts ...

Hello everyone!!!

I am quite interested in Russian Literature and many people have told me about the poet Alexander Pushkin. I haven't read him, so I was wondering if anyone of you have, because I would really appreciate your comments on it.

Well, wishing you a great day,

I must finish my vocabulary test for Latin Vocabulary here in Textkit

Quote for a Bad Teacher

Just wondering if anyone could give me some help with this:

I have an English class with a teacher who marked my final grade down today from an A to a B based on "who I am" even though I had earned an A through the coursework. She told me that despite my work this semester, I didn't deserve an A because of my attitude toward the class. To get to the point, we are ...

Declension of "Lucas"

Saluete! chairete! I was wondering how the name "Lucas" or the like might by declined in Latin, and also how the equivalent, original Greek "Loukas" might as well. Would anyone know?

Hello everyone!!

I learned about this amazing website from a friend of mine: Beati Pauperes, I believe is her username. Unfortunately, she moved and provided me with the website as reference for my Latin studies. I am learning Latin on my own and English is not my native language.

Why am I learning Latin? Well, the only reason is because I find it quite romantic, similar to the Spanish and a great exercise for the ...

Third Person Imperative

I have a question about the force of the 3rd person imperative. Now "May the Force be with you" or "Let God's will be done" are two ways commonly used to render the 3p Imp in English. However, these do not seem to carry much "imperative" force, at least to me. They seem to convey more of a wish or desire... much weaker than (speaking to the Force) "Be with him". Is the phrase "May ...
