Calling All Math Folk

I know there are some folks here who read math Theory (if not just for the Greek).

So help me out...

Why is X raised to the 0 power = 1 and not 0 ?

Regarding gerundives.

Salvete particepes fori,
this is my first post on textkit so I will try to be brief. Recently I have had problems understanding the concept of gerundives, "passive verbal adjectives" as one textbook describes them. Some examples given are:

magister audiendus est - the master is to-be-listend to, or:

imperium regendum erat - The empire was to-be-ruled.

What I do not quite understand is how gerundives differ from say, passive participles? And, in what contexts ...

Vocabulary Strategies

Hi.

I've just joined the forum and thought I'd throw out a question. I'm a first-year Latin student at university and was wondering if anyone has any good strategies for learning vocabulary. I have a lot of vocab that I need to learn or revise for my end-of-year exam in a couple of months.

(And yes, I have already subscribed to a Toolkit vocab course. What a great idea!)

Thanks,

Ioanna

Salvete!

Hi.

I found the site this evening through a link while searching for Latin texts. It looks like a really great site!

I'm a university student from Australia, studying first year Classics and Ancient History. My other interests include folk music, reading and writing, literature (both English and ancient, although I don't yet know much of the latter), and craft. I'm studying Latin at the moment and hope to pick up classical Greek next year. ...

Word placement in a sentence

Is there a certain rule for placing words in a certain order. I know subject and direct object and such are determined by their ending, but I am speaking more in jus any order. For example, "Portat saxa peulla in aqua" meaning- The girl in the water carries rocks. Must you write it as first shown or could you write it as - Puella in aqua portat saxa. This seems to resemble a more English ...

Remembering conjugations, etc.

What is a good way memorize forms of latin words, etc? That is, tables? I have been trying to use M&F Latin to get ahead in my Latin in class but I have trouble memorizing the various forms. What is a good way to make them stick?

Looking for medical dictionary with etymology

I'm trying to find a medical dictionary (specifically for human anatomy and physiology) that has pronunciation guides and etymology. Anglicized Latin and Greek pronunciation is wacky and isn't always predictable. I think I should ask for a botanical dictionary with the same requirements as well while I'm at it, since I'm going to need one in a few years... I wonder if each scientific discipline pronounce word roots differently... I suppose it's too much to ...

RATATATATATATA. KA-BOOM! You're (truly) dead.

Hi,

As American military forces are trying to disarm Iraqi citizens, the chimp administration, along with the US congress, has decided it's high time to arm American citizens.

As of midnight tonight, September 13, 2004, the 10-year moratorium on assualt weapons -- which the chimp (aka Dumya) promised to extend during the 2000 presidential election campaign -- will lapse. :shock:

Shucks, these republicans sure love those high-powered, ...
