Jeff's summer wishlist

Hi everyone, some have asked for what I'm looking for. Generally, I take what I can find and we don't really have too much direction with exactly what we post.

But here's an idea that would make a great August promotion - "The Complete Works of Arthur Sidgwick" We all have our favorites and Sidgwick is one of mine along with Hadley, D'Ooge, Goodwin and White.

Anyone who has thumbed through Greek Prose Composition can ...

Wheelock Reader and 38 Latin Stories

Does anyone have the text from the Wheelock reader that they could type up here or scan? Preferably chapter 19. I only need the Latin, not the English. I would greatly appreciate it for my Latin class. It would be good if we could post the Latin and the English translations for the stories like we have the Practice and Review and Sententiae Antiquae posted. The 38 Latin Stories is also good if someone could ...

What is the best way to.......

I am in the process of learning Greek, and have been studying it on my own. I have been using some different textbooks and even some online courses. Though I must admit that I am having a little trouble grasping all the declensions and syntax. There are just sooooo many diffeent ones that I just feel a little overwelmed. Does it just take a long time to get it all? Any suggestions?

Jeff, and whoever else put it together, I cannot thank you enough!

I am currently working through North and Hillard Prose Composition while at the same time reading De Bello Gallico. I love it! The two go extremely well together and my understanding of latin is growing daily! Thank you very very much! It's great! :D :D

Gentium – a free typeface

Hi folks,

I've got some information that might be of use to some of you who might need some specialized Latin characters or especially a Greek typeface to use on your computer. I do book design and typesetting so I keep my eyes out for this kind of thing. I haven't been part of Textkit very long so I don't know if this free font is widely known, but here is some information on it. ...

Getting back up to speed

Hi everyone - some of you might have notice my lack of participation and activity on Textkit these past few weeks. I moved homes this month and with the move was a real backlog of work that I'm slowly getting on top of.

But I'm happy to say the scanner is buzzing away right now. Currently being scanned is the long overdue Ovid Reader, Sidgwick's Greek Prose Composition and also Sidgwick's Greek Verse Composition Key ...

Thrasymachus by Peckett and Munday

I'm thinking of buying this book. It sounds like an enjoyable way to learn. I'd like to get the opinions of anyone here who have (or have read) this book on whether they think it's an good book for self-study.

Also, I just want to make shure of a couple of things: Firstly, that it is for Attic Greek. And secondly, that it has a vocabulary section and no seperate dictionary is required.

Hello Everyone!

Well, I'm a total beginner at Latin. I've now got my textbooks (which I ordered through the Textkit site from Amazon), but I haven't started in on them yet. I am planning to begin this evening. I am going to try to learn it by myself, without taking an actual course, though hopefully with some of your help when I need it! I'm sure glad this website is here. Anyway, I just thought ...
