Palm Pilot Latin Grammar Books

I don't know if this will be of interest to anyone, but I wanted a way to have at least one good grammar book available for reference on my Palm Pilot. I also wanted the ability to edit the text to add my own references. This meant that just downloading the pdf version would not be helpful. I ended up running the Allen and Greenough book through a very sophisticated OCR application and turning it ...

Chinese characters: Stroke order, etc.

Since there are a few here that are actually interested in Chinese, I am posting this great site up. The problem with learning Chinese characters for beginners is just not learning the proper stroke order, but the proper direction. It's difficult to show the proper stroke direction in books. One book put the numbers at the beginning edge of each stroke. It can sometimes be ambiguous. There are websites about Chinese characters but I haven't ...

Ego reveni!

Hello! I have not posted for a while because not only have I been busy, I have just recently come back from a road trip from Phoenix Arizona. My older brother is going to collage there and I helped him move. I got a lot of hours of driving in, for I drove the entire time, so I should be able to get my license now.

I think Arizona can be summed up in one ...

re: confirm translation (interrogative)

Forum:

Rather than typing the whole story, or briefly stating the context, here is the line for translation:

Line: Quid clamant nymphae?

Translation(?): What did the nymphs praise?

In general, I have not had a problem understanding interrogatives in Latin. This one however I am not sure of.

Caeruleus

RANT against Stealing Site Content

My goodness! It's terrible that you would do such a thing! Why, if somebody were to contact me privately by IM, I would not be able give them copies of, oh, say, Anabasis or Homer that I already obtained in this way, thus saving them lots of time, because I would never do anything so horrid! <insert innocent angel emoticon here>


I'll be frank here, attitudes like this disappoint me. I'm not going to edit ...

Thanks

Hey all,

Just wanted to say cheers for the friendly and intellectual atmosphere i've experienced here for the last six weeks or so. I'm off back to varsity tomorrow, and things no doubt will be as hectic as last term when I didn't find any time to loiter on the board.
I hope you all have a good Jan/Feb/March and will be sure to return during the Easter holiday, when I have another five weeks ...

Voice records of pronuniciation in latin

HI, i'm new to latin and i learn from books.

For this reason I cannot be sure that my pronunciation is correct.
If anyone has voice records, links to voice records or anything of that sort that contain latin text reading (preferably a reading of the pronunciation chapter of a latin grammer book...) please tell me about it...

Thanks in advance,
Shahar.
