The cinematographic Latin sentence

Can anyone can help me? In Paragraph 601 of the Allen & Greenough New Latin Grammar, the authors use a passage from Livy’s ‘Ab urbe condita’ to demonstrate long-sentence verb-at-the-end structure. It’s about what happened to the Volscians when they tangled with the Romans.

Someone wrote that Latin sentences have a cinematographic logic, presenting a chain of events as a series of pictures. I think that is true of this sentence, but I wish I ...

We'll see each other on thursday?

Salvete, everybody,

I am writing a short message in Latin and want to finish it off with a "We'll see each other on thursday!"

I have no problem with "on thursday" (die Iovis) nor with the verb see and its inflexions.

But I do wonder how to put the reflexive, mutual part of my sentence. How would one say "each other" in Latin?

Please help! Thanks.

homeric vocabulary frequency

In Homeric vocabularies by William Bishop Owen and Edgar Johnson Goodspeed the authors list words by the frequency they occur in the Illiad and the Odyssey; so that you have a list of words emphasizing which ones are used the most, or which ones are more important to memorize. Is there such a list available on-line?

Latin Vocab Word Help?

Greetings from a first time poster. I'm translating a papal document from the early 16th century, and am working from text that I transcribed from a digital camera image of a page in a book. I might have transcribed the word wrong, but at any rate I can't find it anywhere in any dictionary or reference work.

The word as I've transcribed it is "scislionis". Does that look familiar to anyone? FWIW, the context in ...

Allen and Greenough's and connecting relatives

My course syllabus lists A&G's newest edition as 'required text.' We don't do anything directly from it; the teacher just thinks it's good to have as reference. Being the penny-pincher that I am, I downloaded a copy from textkit, but somehow I don't quite think it makes the cut as 'newest edition.' Rogo: So do you think that investing in a copy of A&G's is a wise decision for this cash-strapped student? What are the ...
