Minckwitz Reading Group - open to join

To join the Minckwitz reading group, visit Minckwitz-a.

As I said in the poll thread, the first lesson, lines 1-15, will be on Wednesday, February 11th.

We'll close the list to new subscriptions once we start the readings, but for now the mailing list software requires a confirmation email back from you, and moderator permission to join. This is a little obnoxious, but it'll stop most spammers.


COPYRIGHTS- Save the whales! - uh er~ Save the Grammars!

I ran across this link today. Evidently there are forces of good working against the evil of the Sunny Bono Act. We can do something, hopefully, to gain access to a huge cache of copyrighted information if this movement picks up.

how to say this

HI,

I was trying to translate a two word phrase from English to Latin. I looked up some resources and noticed that Latin is not that far off from Spanish. Anyway I need help figuring out how to translate this to Latin

Air Torus (or possibly how to say Torus of the Air, Torus made from Air...)

I found out that Air - of the air, high air is "Aerius"

Then torus is just Torus. ...

How best to start when you're on your own.

I'm a senior at a public (and sadly Latin-less) high school. I got interested in learning after joining a Gregorian chant choir at my parish. I am a complete novice, I have no idea where even to start. but luckily I found this site. What approach would be best for someone like me, with no one around to help?

Consciousness?

Just something I’m interested in right now... there are some modern philosophers around, who claim that we will never know how consciousness first came about. It’s the common view it seems that it is not practically impossible, but generally impossible to know this. That we may find out sometime in the future is ruled out entirely, the reason being we don’t know how matter came into existence out of nothing so how can we know ...

Puellae aquam poetae portant.

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.
I'm looking at my grandfather's first year Latin book, and I'm confused with one of the sentences:
Puellae aquam poētae (for the poet) portant.
Now I think this sentence could mean either:
The girls are carrying water to the poet. Using the Dative declension.
or
The girls are carrying the poet's water. Using the Genitive declension.
But I don't understand how it could mean for the poet.

Hitting the Third Declension Wall!

I was doing good until I hit chapter 7 and the Third Declension Nouns.
Just look at these wack declensions:
homō
hominis
hominī
hominem
homine
hominēs
hominum
hominibus
hominēs
hominibus
Now I ask you, what is the magical mystery secret to mastering Third Declension nouns? Or is this one of those things I have to memorize?

accents in MOUSA

Why is the circumflex accent used in the nom pl of the first declension feminine noun MOUSA (Muse), e.g.,
Mousai with circumflex over the penultimate dipthong -ou, and then the acute accent is used in the dat pl, e.g., Mousais with acute over the penultimate dipthong? Does -ai count as short, but -ais count as long?

Latin - English Interlinear or Parallel Bible

Does anyone know if such a thing exists ? ?
I own a Vulgate and a greek-latin parallel New Testament but I would pay big for an interlinear or parallel latin/english Bible.
