Answers to Wheelock?

The self-tutorial exercises have answers, but the normal chapter exercises do not.

I've also been thinking of getting the workbook, but to my dismay...they don't have the answers to either.

Is there any online source that has the answers? I've only found chapters 1-9, and 22-37.

I can't find workbook answers at all.

I can ask a teacher....but I'm not taking the class...so I feel ashamed to ask him though I'm sure he would. (He's ...

Ovid Amores

:cry: I had a Latin exam today, and well... it didn't go too well. I'm quite sure I translated every sentence wrong, but I just couldn't work this one out and neither could my sister who's very good at Latin.
Now I don't know which book this is from, but I think it's probably 1st book.

Dum servat Iuno mutatam cornibus Io,
facta est, ...

Notes on the Greek New Testament

I have just discovered this site, and it looks like a gold mine for anyone interested in NT Greek. Peter Misselbrook has written notes on every book, which include the text, notes on the text, and vocabulary of selected words.

Downloads are not too bad ( 1.9mb bor St Luke), and all in pdf format. :D

Martial 1.13

I borrowed this from the Latin Library, it is also on page 281 of Wheelock's (6th Edition). I didn't use the Wheelock's edition because I wanted to see how I would do without any footnotes. I would like someone (or a few people) to look over my translation, please. It's a very nice poem, both in rhythm and in meaning.

Greek or Latin first?

I would like to learn the classics in chronological order. My reason is that I want to be able to trace the development of ideas in the order that they appear. To do do that, it seems to me I should learn ancient Greek first. However, I am under the impression that students in the trivium generally learn Latin first and then Greek. I would definitely like to learn both. What are the pros and ...

Original Cases in Greek

1) In Homer several words end in "-then", refering to motion away from a place. Some genitives also end in "-then", such as "emethen". I know that the genitive in Attic Greek includes the ablative. So is the "-then" ending a "true" ablative?

2) What is the -de suffix on words (oikade, athenazde etc) , grammatically speaking? It indicates a kind of motion - motion towards. Is it a kind of case? Or is it ...

Was there such a thing as vulgar greek? I mean I haven't seen much material about the language of common greek people in the pre-koine period.
