SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.
Hi, can someone check this?
Possuntne pecūnia ōtiumque cūrās vītae hūmānae superāre?
Are money and leisure able to overcome the anxieties of human life?

Also, if I wanted to say, "multos gratias et valete bene", could I write it as "multos gratias valete beneque"?

MULTOS GRATIAS ET VALETE BENE,
solitario

Textkit Server

Hi everyone,

I apologize for any technical problems. Texktit is now running on a new and more powerful server. There were a few glitches with the move, but I think I have them all fixed now.

Please let me know if you're having any problems with the site.

thanks!

Exqistos in Iliad 1:176

e)/xqistoj de/ moi/ e)ssi....
You are the most hateful to me.

Does this mean that Agamemnon hates Achilles most of all, or that Agamemnon feels that Achilles hates him most of all?
Both instances are probably true, but this line likely would mean one or the other.


conformity and culture

my little sister just turned 18 and is going through an anti-establishment phase. she was explaining to me why she will never shave her legs again:

but it's just not natural. It's too, corporate America. I wan't to douse the fact that people think that if you /don't/ shave your legs, it's not natural. Seeing as women have been on the earth for centuries upon centuries and shaving only came up around the 1920's.... ...

Favourite Latin Tense

Sanskrit on TextKit?

Hello,
Is anyone here interested in learning Sanskrit? I myself would like to do so once I have reached competency in Latin and Greek.

Are there any plans to include Sanskrit books on Textkit?

Having trouble with the word-order!(and other things)

Hello!
I've just started my Greek studies (I'm all on my own...no teachers) and I have some questions:

When translating (for example "small armies") where should the adj. be placed? Before or after "armies"?

The preposition ")en" (par. 40), when in a sentence preceeding the dative; how exactly does it translate to english...does it become something like "within"?

If anyone has any useful tips on wordorder in general, I would appreciate it!

Thanks! Great Forum!

2 questions, please...

No jokes please. This one's got me scratchin my head:
Officium nautam dē ōtiō hodiē vocat.
Duty calls today sailor's of leisure???

Also, now that you see how new I am to Latin, how long (in years/decades) would it take to understand this guy?

multos gratias et valete bene,
solitario
