Ancient Hebrew- Independent guide

salvete omnes!

I was wondering if anybody could possibly help me? I am need of a textbook of some sort that teaches ancient hebrew. It's a present for a friend, and any advice would be greatly appreciated. I unfortunately have no knowledge of hebrew... but if anyone has taught themselves (or knows of someone who has) any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Or even if you could point me in the direction of a relevant ...

Introduction *waves*

Hey everyone,

Just thought I'd introduce myself, as I will no doubt be bombarding you all with copious amounts of questions in the coming weeks.

Ummmm...so, I'm 20 years old, and am currently studying psychology at university - in Brisbane, Australia. Just finished my finals for this year a week or two ago, and decided that I needed something to occupy my time with these holidays - when I wasn't out destroying my liver.

So...as ...

Parts of Pharr

Jeff, would you be willing to make just the Grammar section of Pharr's book available as a separate download? It really is a fantastic reference for the morphology of Epic Greek... much nicer than reading the footnotes in Smyth.

Concerning olim and pars

1) In Wheelock's, I understand the adverb olim to mean 'recently', but also it can mean 'in the future' which seems contradictory. Why is this?

2) I understand the noun pars to mean 'a part' or 'share' of, but why does the text also say 'direction'?

Tibi gratias ago.

Homeric Frustrations:

Just looking for sympathy: I'm reading through the Iliad and I'm on book 6: line 240: I'm going to make it through the first Loeb book even if it kills me, and then I'm going to frame the little tattered green paper cover and hang it on my wall as a trophy.

Little Red Riding Hood

Does anyone know how the official translation of 'Little Red Riding Hood' sounds in Latin? Or maybe some know a site with the names of different figures and cartoons? E.g. how to say Snowwhite, etc.?

There must be also Latin names as for Tintinus et Millulus, Asterix et Obelix and Mikey musculus ..., but where to find them?

Grazie mille,
