Can any one help me...

Hi I'm Rudy and new to the forum. I was wonder if some one could translate something for me. My friend e-mailed me this message and said it was in Latin... Could some one help me translate it?

Bibere verenum in auro bis a die et mortem!
Pro tempore auribus teneo lupum. Fama nihil est celerices, fama crescit eundo. Me fallit cur nemine disssentiente. Nomines libenter quod volunt credent. Non est mea culpa difficile est ...

Scanning 1.15

xruse/w| a)na\ skh/ptw|, kai\ e)li/sseto pa/ntas )Axaiou/j

I'm fairly sure that the last three feet are - u u | - u u | - -, but there seem to be way too many vowels in the first part of the line.

Overall, scanning Homer seems slightly easier than Shakespeare, even though the latter is in my mother tongue.

Composition Critique needed:

My pastor has been doing a series of dreadfully boring sermons, so to prevent nodding off, I've been trying to translate some of the morning hymns into greek. Can someone critique the following effort?


ton xriston asfela petran epistamai ,<br>
pas eteros xqonos esti ammos kataduwn



(I haven't learned accents yet)

One question also: where would I place the article in this section
pas eteros xqonos ?
Also, if i wanted to use ...

I need copywriting help...

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for someone who's interested in web site copywriting. I have two needs; to get Textkit itself cleaned up and also I have a client who needs a copywriter.

If you spend anytime on Texkit you have probably noticed my typos and poorly written copy. It's a combination of haste due to lack of time and also I find it really hard for me to catch my own mistakes.

I would like ...

eram and fui

Am I right in getting the impression that 'eram' and 'fui' are more or less interchangeable? The distinction between perfect and imperfect does not seem to apply to this verb as it does to others. When I'm doing composition exercises all I can do is guess which one I will find when I look in the key.

What is the name of the font in North and Hillard's key?

What is the name of the Greek font used in so many books, for example, in North and Hillard's Greek Prose Composition Key? I mean the printer font, of course, not any computer font.

This font seemed to be ubiquitous, but I don't see any new computer fonts that even resemble it. I'm wondering why. Is this old font unpopuplar, for some reason?

Do any printed Greek books give a note at the front that ...
