Gerunds and Present Participles

Am I right in saying that the present participle is the adjective and gerund is the noun? The -ing forms are totally different.

And what is what I just said in Latin :?

Thanks :)

Be the first to download....

... Latin Prose Composition by North and Hillard. After searching and searching I FINALLY found a 1913 copy overseas. It was badly marked up. I managed to remove most of it, but please excuse the occasional ink spill and underlined word - the former owner(s) was a real doodler with the sad habit of marking within the text and not in the margin.

I'm still in search of a key ...

complete SPIonic key map

hi guys, everyone typing in greek might already have a copy of something like this, but just in case, here's a list of everything in the SPIonic font:

http://www.bsw.org/fonts/SPIonic.htm

note in particular that there's 2 versions for all accents, combinations of accents, &c: one for narrow letters (like iota) and one for wide characters (like omega). so e.g. you'd always use ~, not =, over omega. also the combinations ...

Good Learning Sites

To all,
I am new to this board and I was wondering, though it most likely has been asked and asked and asked again. Are there any good sites online with Latin resources, for learning/re-learning purposes? I took Latin in HS for 4.5 years and went to the Gubernatoris Latina Academia here in VA. I will be heading off to seminary pretty soon and would like to begin to brush up on my Latin skills.

Endings

Is there an easier way to memorize the endings for Latin nouns? I've printed off D'Ooge's chart, and I carry it in my pocket, refer to it through the day, and recite them to myself without looking. Then I start reading my lessons, and I forget them all. Latin is no fun when you can't remember whether this word is nominative, accusative, dative, ablative, or genitive.

I would have thought by now that this wouldn't ...

Some Particulate Matter, or, Why I Love the Dutch

Albert Rijksbaron seems to have taught serveral good Dutch classicists. Somehow a bunch of them are into applying discourse and pragmatic linguistic theory to classical Greek, and the results are pretty interesting. Helma Dik, now at the University of Chicago, wrote a book which I think presents the first coherent account of Greek word order ever.

A few weeks ago I picked up New Approaches to Greek Particles, conference papers edited by Rijksbaron. I thought ...

An introduction and a question.

I stumbled upon this forum a few days ago and I must say that I am pleased with what I see. At first, however, I was not too interested in coming to such a small forum, but then again, I just made the posting population one man higher, no?

Well I’m not overly good at introductions, so I will just throw out some information.

I am but 16 years of age as of November 23, ...
