New PDFs

I noticed today that the count of available texts suddenly jumped up by four (yay, Jeff!), but the titles of the new texts were not listed in the new title list. So, does anybody know which ones are new?

answer key??

Hi,

Are there any updates on when the answer key will be available?

I want to start a beginner book with my 15 year old in January and am torn between Henle and LFB. Henle at least has a partial answer key for it.

The Subjunctive in indirect questions

I understand that interrogative words need to go in there, or num for a yes or no question, but are there any other constructions that I should watch out for? I was reading A&G today talking about infinitives in rhetorical questions. Basically this needs an expert to answer in English that I may understand. It was really strange, A&G had loads of pages on indirect speech, most of which I did not understand. There were ...

the majesty of multiplicity

afternoon (alter as necessary) all,

couldn't help but noticing that posts are created far too rarely here, so i thought i ought create one.

it's brief and perhaps even borders on miniscular, but there is a competitive (that's right episocus/benissimus inter alia) edge to it.

if we take the verb incendo to mean "i burn" (trans.), please could i have FIVE different translations of the grammatical form

INCENDERE

That is, there are five instances in ...

Greek fonts coming and going

For some reason, some of the Greek fonts don't display. I only get the greek codes people write here. The funny thing is that the resizing code works. So what I'm seeing is bigger and bold latin text.

Here is a sample posting:

The first post shows greek. The second by Koala doesn't show. The third by annis doesn't show this word in greek po/lemoj.

Is ...

Unicode greek input tool

Hoping somebody post a better tool for writing greek in unicode, ...

http://users.ox.ac.uk/~tayl0010/letters ... etpos2.htm

The input method here is similar to betacode. So I thought it would be easy for textkit members. I was looking for unicode tools to use truetype unicode fonts. :

Input unicode greek text in the tool
--> Copy & paste into an editor that supports unicode
--> change to a truetype unicode font ...

tre/xontej e)fai/nonto oi( pai=dej kai\ e)/bhsan ei)j to\ i(ero\n pri\n to\n a)/rxonta gnw=nai au)tou/j.

It's been a hard chestnut for a long time. And now I challenge this sentence:

The boys were shown running and they went in the sanctuary(or just temple) before the commander who knows them(lit., knowing them).

about this thread:
http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-foru ... php?t=1077

I'll have to skip the replies(especially of those advanced members like chad) at first and try my own. :? :(

Correct or almost correct answers come too early. :(

Native languages?

I must first apologize for one of the previous topics; I kind of destroyed the harmony of Textkit. I’m still new to this whole forum thing; this is the first I have joined after all. So once again, I’m sorry. Well, that said, let’s continue.

We seem to have many people from all around so I have some simple questions: what is your native language? How many languages do you know? What does English sound ...
