Allen and Greenough's and connecting relatives

My course syllabus lists A&G's newest edition as 'required text.' We don't do anything directly from it; the teacher just thinks it's good to have as reference. Being the penny-pincher that I am, I downloaded a copy from textkit, but somehow I don't quite think it makes the cut as 'newest edition.' Rogo: So do you think that investing in a copy of A&G's is a wise decision for this cash-strapped student? What are the ...

Adverb phrases

Chapter 7 of Wheelock's:

1) Sentence 9:
Post bellum multos libros de pace et remediis belli videbant.

After the war, we were seeing many books of peace and remedies for the war.

Why is "Post bellum" not written "Post bello" because it is an adverbial phrase telling time of action. Wheelock's treats it as an object.

2) Could someone explain the difference between "te" and "tu"?

Thank you.

Question: adverb phrases

Exercises: Chapter 7 of Wheelock's.

1) Sentence 9 reads:
Post bellum multos libros de pace et remediis belli videbant.

After the war, we were seeing many books of peace and remedies of/for the war.

I wondered why 'Post bellum' is not written as 'Post bello' (Ablative) because this is an adverb phrase telling time of action. The book wrote it as the Accusative but this is not an object being acted upon.

2) Could someone ...

Grammatical Terms

I am not a native English speaker and therefore I sometimes have a little trouble understanding the grammatical terms in English...

I am used to talking about "genitivus partitivus" and "coniunctivus hortativus" and the like...

I'd like to know the English equivalents when reading about Latin grammar in English.

Can someone point me to a reliable concordance?

Thanks very much.

Mathematical vocabulary

Now that whiteoctave has gone :cry: there is no master who might tame me and inspire me to actually do any latin indeed I have not for like a month. It always happens. The only thing I do is write and then I stop for ages.

Now I need some funky mathematical vocabulary because I use them often in insults. Does any one have ...

How should I start?

I'm a third-year Latin student interested in dabbling in Greek. I took a look at the Textkit e-books, but there are SO MANY. So, now I turn to you: which text is best in your opinion?

Bello Gallico

All:

Here's a general question regarding word order in prepositional phrases -

In a passage from the Invasion of Britain, Caesar writes:
"de superioris temporis consilio se excusant."

Now, I gather that the passage ultimately says something along the lines of, "They excuse themselves regarding (their) policy in a previous time."

But why is it that 'consilio' finds itself so far away from the 'ad' preposition that governs it? -- it seems like I've been ...

new method for learning NT Greek. Feedback desired.

Hello all,

I'm developing a novel way to teach and learn Greek. I have a website where this method can be explored.

http://www3.telus.net/norbertre/index.html

You need a Polytonic Greek unicode font to be able to read the stories. There are links on the site where you can download them.

My approach is to teach paradigms and vocabulary in a story context. The user can interact with controls and select things like plural/singular, 1,2 and 3rd person, ...
