Ecce tiro!

Hello all,

I just found textkit.com tonight. :) I live in Vermont, USA. I’m a programmer by trade, with interests in language and history. I’m circling back to Latin now; I never studied it formally, but dove in or dabbled as time has permitted. I expect to be an intermittent participant, so please forgive me if I don’t reply in a timely fashion. I appreciate all of ...

Hi! I'm new...

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone here. This is my first attempt to learn Latin... :idea: :!: I'm taking this on as an independent learner simply because I find the origin of word(s) to be interesting. I'm interested in the sacred aspects that cultivated written languages. I hope this doesn't sound too weird ...

Please correct, discuss & improve on this flippancy :lol:

When I see this (in my browser) the breathings muck up the spacing of words - does this happen for all? I've twice ditched and re-installed SPIonic but that doesn't seem to have been successful. Hmmmmmmm

anyone seen this before?

This may have been posted by someone before, but in case it hasn't check out http://eleaston.com/In-dict.html.

There is some neat stuff there, but I haven't explored the site thoroughly yet, so don't be surprised if a link doesn't work, etc.

Pharr Lesson IX Exercises

Since William's keys to Pharr on aoidoi.org skip the exercises for lesson 9, and since I hate not having feedback for exercises, I am posting my feeble attempts at translation here. Any constructive criticism is welcome. Thanks.

William,

One general question: I noticed that in Pharr, the word for "fatherland" is listed as pa/trh, where your solutions always have it as though it is patrh/. For instance, for the genitive you use patrh=j, whereas Pharr ...


oikhomai at Il. 1, 53

Look closely: at line 50 we have:

ou)rh=av m\en e)pwixeto kai\ ku/nav argou/v

& then next at line 53 we have

e)nnh=mar me/n a)na\ strato\n w)ixeto kh=la qeoio

In Samuel Butler's translation we have the following: "For nine whole days he shot his arrows among the people, but upon the tenth day Achilles called them in assembly", that's ok.

But think: epí + oikhomai (vv. 50)= visit with death, strike; while oikhomai alone means "to ...


Studying Latin and Greek concurrently

I have noticed quite a few people studying Latin and Greek at the same time. Having spent a couple of years working on Latin, I would like to hear from people who have tried Greek at the same time. Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Proof That We Know Almost Nothing...

How do you prove something? Well that's the thing; you cannot prove something. First off lets start with something we all think is true. For example, we are all under the effects of gravity from the earth. Okay, this theory seems very wild at first, but take a while to think this over...Some people might get it and others may not. Back to example...tell me how you know that there really isn't a monkey sitting ...
