Herodotus reading group?

Hello everyone,
I am thinking about to start a Herodotus reading group and I would like to know, if someone is willing to join. So I would be very glad, if everyone wishing to participate, will give a vote.

Though I am sure, that mostly everyone here knows Herodotus, I want to explain briefly, why I think such group should be started.

I think Herodotus is interesting in how and what he writes. He uses ...

Wheelock Chapter 3

Ok, here's my translation of the selection from chapter 3, with the Latin first.

Agricola et vitam et fortunam nautae saepe laudat; nauta magnam fortunam et vitam poetae saepe laudat; et poeta vitam et agros agricolae laudat. Sine philisophia avari viri de pecunia semper cogitant: multam pecuniam habent, sed pecunia multa viram avarum non satiat.

and my translation:

The farmer praises both the life and the fortune of the sailor; the sailor often praises the ...

Anyone know of Greek Grammar Guides?

I am not sure if anyone knows of those laminated grammar guides for Spanish, French, and German, and other popular subjects - does anyone know if they have one for Ancient Greek? I have even found them for Latin, but not Ancient Greek.

Has anyone made their own small, compact grammar guide on Word or Word Perfect and might be willing to share? Thanks a bunch.

to kill - quick question

I'm still pretty new at learning Latin, but I've come across a few different words for 'to kill'

occido (actually I haven't come across this one yet, but I see it in the dictionary at the end)

Are there any differences in these words? Are they completely interchangable? i realize in English we have lots of different words for kill, some are more appropriate than others depending on the context.

Translating from English to Greek (comparative)

Hi all,

I'm new here but already asking for a favor... :oops:

I don't have many contacts who know Greek, so I had to come here hoping that some nice person would help me. :)

Is this correct?
