Hey, Noam Chomsky is on HBO tonight.


When was the last time the brilliant scholar and political activist Noam Chomsky was on an American TV channel (I know -- it's HBO, not TV)? Exactly, a very, very long time ago.

Gerunds and supines

How would I say "I have come to kill you" with a gerund or a 'um'-supine? Te necatum veni sound quite odd to me, so does Te necandi causa veni. You could of course say Veni ut te necem, but I'd like to know how to say it differently.

I need another translation...benissimus? hehe

this is kinda like a paragraph.

"My love for you is unconditional and undying. I would wish nothing about you to be changed, as you are perfect in my eyes. I would do anything for you, even run through the gates of hell itself. Would you spend the rest of your life with me?"

any help would be fine...her textbook says benissimus is a pro latin-translator, so i guess i'm looking to him moreso. thanks! ...

Possible to Audit the Pharr Class Beginning on Nov. 8?

I saw that the Pharr Homeric Greek course starting on November 8 is full.
When will the next course be offered? Any chance I could just get on the
mailing list for the November 8 course if I promise not to ask any
questions? I'd be eternally greatful for a chance to sit in quietly.

Unit One Drill - Section I - #11

Unit One Drill - Section I (pg 31) - #11:

Turbamne terrebas? Non terrebam.

Did you (used to) frighten the crowd? No, ...
