Gradus ad Parnassus

Would anyone think that Fux's Gradus ad Parnassus would be a good choice? I know that it is post-classical, but it gives a very different insight into Latin (and it's good for music students). What does anyone else think?

The Best Film Ever

No it's not Troy. Why is such a fuss made? Why do people even try to beat the classics?

Who is there who can deny that DEEP IMPACT is the best film ever?

Deep Impact like Jurassic Park always makes me cry.

You think I am joking don't you.

BLD §§ 201-205 Perfect Passive Participle

I'm having a mental block with how to "inflect" the perfect passive.

1. Is this called inflection because of the dual nature of the form? As opposed to decline or conjugate?

2. As I understand the construction of a compound case, you would decline the base like bonus, -a, -um. However, I can't quite see where you would use anything but a one case: nominative. It must agree with the word it modifies in gender, ...

lacrima et annus

hey,

I'm looking for possible synonyms for lacrima and annus.

Specifically, I want to find a way to make the ablative plural of "tears" rhyme with the ablative singular of "year". So right now I have anno and lacrimis, which of course do not rhyme.

Any ideas?

I wanted to check Perseus but it appears to be down right now...

Latin or Greek?

Hello, I was under the impression I wanted to learn latin. And when I searched on google for information textkit was the first to come up and seems to hold the possibility of being an excellent resource.

However I was perplexed at the first page offering ancient greek lessons.

My goal is to learn a new language and I figured latin would give me an edge in moving on to others. Is this still so ...
