And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of ...

Wheelock Chaps 7 and 9 key comments

Salvete amici,

I have just completed chaps 5 to 10 and would like to suggest the following for the key provided by Textkit.

Chap 7

In the Rape of Lucretia:

Would the translation be more accurately: .... Sextus raped Lucretia, the wife of Collatinus, and the good woman, because of great love of virtue, killed herself. The ancient Romans used to always praise the virtue and courage of Lucretia and blame the Tarquins.

English->Latin Dictionary

Hi :)
Does anyone know anywhere on the net that I could find a English to Latin dictionary? I know there are many online ones to search for a specific word but I would like a list of English words with the Latin translations of them to print off.

If anyone can help I will be very grateful!
Thanks in advance

Latin Pronunciation

While I know that most text books devote a chapter or two to explaining the pronunciation of Latin, I am still baffled by the jargons. Also, I heard that there are different versions to pronounce Latin, is that true? And what is the 'ecclesiastical' one? Is that pretty much the way Italian is pronounced? If no, what's the difference? A million thanks.

Attic and Homeric

I have a book on Attic greek, but I really would like to read homer. How different are both dialects? It's better to learn one after the other, or would be nice to learn both together? or just one?

Quid and Quod

I'm having some trouble with the pronouns quid and quod. It seems to me that Wheelock's uses the former in places where it should use the latter. For example, I translate SA4 in chapter 30 (Nunc scio quid sit amor) as "Now I know what may be love." Shouldn't the Latin word for "what" be a relative pronoun instead of an interrogative?

Thanks to anyone who can help.
