A Classical Language Learning Forum

Thankyou for this forum!

Welcome to the D'Ooge forum every wise being who has chosen the best beginner's grammar going. Well deserved.

Thankyou textkit for this forum and the great book - I for one am actually learning Latin hence. Quite easily, may I add.

I thought, I should say something because this calls for it!

Welcome fellow D'Ooge learners :D

New Textbook Boards

We have added several new boards to encourage learners using specific textbooks to meet and help each other.

We're hoping the new boards will encourage more targeted discussions that are easier to find and follow and also to bring in new visitors who perhaps think that Textkit is a place for learning only through public domain grammars.

So if you're using any of these books, please begin posting in the respective boards.

thanks again!

Jeff

I just wanted to formally say hello to everyone and to say how glad that this place exists. I look forward to many a winter's night in front of my computer, slogging through my D'Ooge and discussing the finer points of grammar or literature with all of you. Why not some Claudian made available some day or Ammiannus Marcellinus?

talatta or talassa?

I was reading JWW's First Greek Book and I found a lot of words with a double "sigma" in my dictionary; qhile in that book they have a double "tau" instead
e.g.
tessara => tettara (four)
thalassa => talatta (sea)
et cetera
why that difference?
which is the correct form?

how to make syllables

Hi, my first post!

I am trying to work out how to divde the word vias into syllables.
Does the vowel combination ia make a diphthong? Or is the i here regarded as i consonant? In which case I can't decide how to make the division.

Thanks,
inNout

edit:
Is it proper to regard diphthongs as a single vowel?

Greek synonyms help pls.

Hey you all,

does anyone know a good book with Greek synonymes? Or a website with Greek synonyms?

It would be easier for making Greek compositions!
I know books for Latin synonyms, but the ones I know for Greek are all sold out. So does anyone know a book for Greek synonyms that's actually still available?

Many, many thanks in advance,

Moerus

Latin For Beginners, section 318 probably mental block.

I've had this a few times, when I just am confused by a sentence and then I usually find an embarrassingly simple solution. It's probably the same with this. The others, even English to Latin, I found very easy as usual (methinks I may be able to faire Greek soon) However I am ashamed of my nonsense attempt at this so I am just going to ask:
