Word placement in a sentence

Is there a certain rule for placing words in a certain order. I know subject and direct object and such are determined by their ending, but I am speaking more in jus any order. For example, "Portat saxa peulla in aqua" meaning- The girl in the water carries rocks. Must you write it as first shown or could you write it as - Puella in aqua portat saxa. This seems to resemble a more English ...

Remembering conjugations, etc.

What is a good way memorize forms of latin words, etc? That is, tables? I have been trying to use M&F Latin to get ahead in my Latin in class but I have trouble memorizing the various forms. What is a good way to make them stick?

Looking for medical dictionary with etymology

I'm trying to find a medical dictionary (specifically for human anatomy and physiology) that has pronunciation guides and etymology. Anglicized Latin and Greek pronunciation is wacky and isn't always predictable. I think I should ask for a botanical dictionary with the same requirements as well while I'm at it, since I'm going to need one in a few years... I wonder if each scientific discipline pronounce word roots differently... I suppose it's too much to ...

RATATATATATATA. KA-BOOM! You're (truly) dead.

Hi,

As American military forces are trying to disarm Iraqi citizens, the chimp administration, along with the US congress, has decided it's high time to arm American citizens.

As of midnight tonight, September 13, 2004, the 10-year moratorium on assualt weapons -- which the chimp (aka Dumya) promised to extend during the 2000 presidential election campaign -- will lapse. :shock:

Shucks, these republicans sure love those high-powered, ...

Pharr: Lesson 17 (line 19.4)

Hi,

It's Saturday night and i am studying Greek. Now that is cool!

In line 19.4 of the Iliad, Pharr (and Benner) have e)u/ instead of eu)=. P.A. Draper and greekgeek.org have the latter.

Which one is it?

If it's the former, do I scan it as two short syllables?

Thanking in advance (the usual suspect, of course :D ),

New

Hello everyone. I'm new here. I thought Latin might be a good place to start in my never-ending list of languages I might like to learn. Just thought I'd introduce myself. I did have a question though. I'm a bit challenged when it comes to computers.

Is it possible to download the books and burn them onto a CD-RW? If so I'd appreciate any ideas on how to do it so I can take them ...
