strange adversative combination: sed - tamen

I'm bothered by the use of sed & tamen in the
following sentence - can you help?

Dici potest consistere in tanta, sed minutissima tamen
fluiditate, ac subtilitate corporis.

I'm pretty sure that tanta qualifies fluiditate, but
am bothered about the positioning of the sed and
tamen. Maybe because I consider the fluidity and
subtility not be naturally contradictory. So far, I
have stretched my translation to be as follows, but
I'm uncomfortable with it ...

Similiter?

When I say "You are similar to him" I say Similis ei es. But when I want to say "You run like him" (similar to him) would that translate as Curris similiter ei? Or should I use the nominative instead of the dative when it's an adverb?

Translation help

Okay since I was sick today I didn't go to school, thus, I missed Latin class. We have a quiz tomorrow and I want to make sure I'm prepared for it. I'll post what we probably would have gone over in class. We're reading Caesaris de bello gallico commentariorum liber primus. I think I've totally butchered it but here goes:

Id hoc facilius iis persuasit, quod undique loci natura Helvetii continentur: una ex parte flumine ...

The Odyssey Reading Group is ready - Starting October 27th

The Odyssey Study Group is now open for admission.

I'm calling this list "Odyssey Forever" right now. If we keep the pace we used in the Minckwitz (Odyssey 12) list, I estimate it'll take about 12 years to complete the entire Odyssey. :) Not that I mind. In any case for now we'll stick to 15-20 (maybe 25) lines a week. We can alter as necessary once ...

Year of Goodwin's Syntax of the Moods and Tenses last rev.?

Hi,

Would anyone know the year of Goodwin's Syntax of the Moods and Tenses of the Greek Verb last revision? I have found a copy based on the 1889 edition. Would that year be the last revision year?

Thank you.

Learning Italian

Well I've always wanted to learn Italian. Now a friend of mine is about to start a course at the university. I can't afford the $$ to take it with her, but would love to follow along while she does, so we can learn it together. With that in mind, does anyone know what the best books/cds/etc are for Italian? What do you recommend?

I figure it shouldn't be too hard since I know a ...

Salvete, Novus Sum

Greetings all, I'm new to the forum. Glad to know I'm not the only one in love with dead languages. I'm currently studying Latin and Old English in school mostly for historical and linguistic interests; I'm also hoping to learn Ancient Greek on my own.

Needless to say, I don't have a life (don't think anyone learning these languages ever does) but I really don't have many interests outside my studies anyway.

I'm currently majoring ...
