A Classical Language Learning Forum

Ovid Study Group

Just out of curiosity, would there be any interest in an Ovid study group?
I have been thinking a lot about this :D
I don't know exactly what works of Ovid we could concentrate on as he wrote so much.
If there is any interest in this, let me know!

bringer

Hi,

As far as I know Lucifer means "Bringer of Light". Can "fer" be appended to a genitive noun to make "Bringer of ***"?

Thanks

Why not Unicode?

Newbie question. I understand the choice of the SPIonic font for the TextKit fora, since it's basically betacode (in my opinion, the second best standard for representing Classical Greek), but why not Unicode (the best standard)? After all, fonts are freely available, the character mapping is standard, keyboard mappings are whatever people set up for themselves, and Unicode is the way of the future. (Admittedly, my e-mail program does not yet support Unicode, but that's ...

Quick Help

Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me here?

I am looking for some latin phrase to go on my sword.

I was thinking of using my clan's motto: "Per Mare, Per Terras", but slightly changing it to "Per Mare, Per Terras, Per Astra".

Now my question is does that say, "By Sea, By Land, By Stars" Or would it be better with "the" in "By (the) Stars"?

Or does this sound any better: ...

Latin imperatives

Does anyone have any definitive comments to make on the TO/TOTE form of the imperative? I had always learned that it was a 'future' or 'strengthened' form of the simple imperative, with TO for the 2nd person singular, TOTE for the 2nd person plural, and sometimes ANTO/UNTO for the 3rd person plural. My problem is that in the Kennedy grammars the TO form (as in 'amato') is listed as being used for the 3rd person ...

Translation Request

Hello,

Nothin scholarly about my question, but hopefully someone can help.

My father-in-law Peter Mouhlas was Greek, died about 10 years ago. He always called his daughter/my wife by the pet name Boodle Bug. Even in later years he still called her Boodle.

Last fall we bought a sailboat and I would like to name it Boodle II, Boodle 2, Boodle the 2nd, something along those lines. I'd like to put the II, 2, or ...
