Nunn's Elements

We have Nunn's Syntax, but what about Nunn's Elements...

Its a beginners learning grammar rather than a reference type.

I think its 1923. Anyone out there know otherwise?

Keller and Russell's Learn to Read Latin

Has anyone used this text before? It's quite nice as it comes with a 550+ page work book to accompany it. From what I've been told it's not unlike Moreland and Fleischer in its approach to the language.

On that note, I have a translation question. I'm a first year university Latin student, so bear with me (I've only got a 75.5%).

Oppida in insula videre poteris.

commendation for textkit tutorials

A very respected (retired) Greek professor who is one of the moderators of B-Greek (a Biblical Greek e-mail discussion group) praised some of the textkit tutorials.
I don't need this approval to appreciate the textkit tutorials but it was nice to read and it increases my respect for the authors to a higher level.

Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati question

I'm on the second chapter of Wheelocks (Yay me!) and it's going well. I do have a question about the Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati. When should I start trying to do those? They don't seem to be coordinated with any particular chapters.

de ciceronem incerta

Visus est similis in orationibus eius consulibus (id est 'politicians') nostris ut vomere volo. In epistulis autem atque libellis amo satis.

Quid dixit sapientes? Verene 'Romam ex igne et ferro eripuit'?

Would I be cheating myself in class if...

If I posted a paragraph I translated from Latin to English and asked you guys/gals to correct it? I say this because I have to hand it in for marks in my course. Is there a way that I could post my translation and you guys/gals could just point out what I did wrong or something without telling me the answer? I don't want to cheat myself here and not get an honest mark, but ...

Medieval Latin

Hi Everyone

I am new to this site, but it seems a great resource - I am glad I found it.

I had a classical eduction, learning the usual Latin authors (say approx 100 years either side of Caesar or Cicero).

However, my main interest now is in medieval Latin - from say Augustine right through to the 16th century.

How much different is medieval Latin from the classical period ? And does it change ...
