The highlight of my day

In Myth class today the teacher passed out a poem, with the original Greek version on one side of the page, and I could actually understand some parts! I was ecstatic.

This has to be pretty cool. The ESA (the European Space Agency, for the uninitiated) is launching into space a satellite which will return to Earth 50006 years hence. Encoded on 100 DVDs, together of course with instructions on how to construct a DVD player, will be messages from members of the public who have e-mailed the organizers. No censorship will be exercised, and anyone can submit up to four type-written pages. Assuming that ...

Assatura ?

Does anyone know what the above word means ? I am guessing it is something to do with food from the context :-

femina assaturam radicula ornat.

Thanks in advance.

Mi verbs


I am trying to really learn the -mi verbs once and for all. It seems to me that the best way to do this is learn them all at once, noticing the patterns and delving a little into the philology. What I've written here is what I currently know about the verbs in general (what I call 'the three classes') and then my version of the present indicative active of class I (as far ...

Hortor Abduco Compleo?

Can some one tell me if this makes sense, and if so, if it is gramatically correct? I'm trying to come up with a saying or phrase relating to sports compeditions but has to have the intials H, A, and C, in that specific order.

My understanding is, the above means "to encourage, to lead, to complete."

If part or something does not, can you give me suggestions?

http://www.hattrick.org is an online soccer game where you have to buy and sell players, train them, set up the team's lineup to win your league, being promoted to the higher division.
At present almost 500 000 people from 88 countries in the world play it. I find it very very funny, also because there's an active community where you can discuss about the game and other things (even completely OT).
I've been playing for 6 ...

Dulce Et Decorum Est

I have just started studying Latin and I was wondering if anyone could explain a couple of questions about the grammar of Horace's Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. Firstly, I assume 'mori' is some form of infinitive, but I can't find which form it is.

Secondly, if anyone knows the Latin for 'to spy' would they be so kind as to provide it in the same infinitive form as 'mori' is in in ...

Miror quas de religione sententias habeant alii hoc forum frequentantes. Meo iudicio religiones nil praeter superstitiones sunt quae iam extinctae esse debent.

Semper perturbat me quod aliqui mysticus barbatus, qui abhinc multa saecula mortuus est, tantum valere potest apud tot homines in nationibus modernis viventes.

Illi barbati, quamquam iam pulvis sunt, etiamnunc efficiunt ut biliones hominum sicut stulti asini se gerant.

Religio dedecori est generi humano.

Ecquis religionem defendere vult?
