Duos Quaestiones ...

Salvete, amici! Diu absum, sed semper sum felix quando ad hunc locum revenio.

Quaestionem habeo, de declinatione de "-tio" nomines (aut "de nominibus"?); estne ita? :

Using "The Art of Reading Latin"

I'm thinking about using the technique described in William Gardner Hale's lecture, "The Art of Reading Latin: How to Teach It" and I'm wondering how it might be done by those who are learning by self study.

Does Size Matter, Or Is Bigger Better?


Everyone, especially the moderators, can breathe a sigh of relief -- it's not what you think. :)

This past week, my girlfriend sent me to the market to buy some capers so she can use as a garnish for one of her yummy vegetable dishes. At the market, I was befuddled by the wide assortment of caper sizes: small, medium, big and very big -- vow! ...
