Translation for the word "Adore"

Merriam webster says that the word "adore" as in "I adore my daughter" comes from the Latin word "adorare"

I'm wondering if this is correct, and also if you might be able suggest an authentic looking old type Latin font.

Thanks in advance!!!!

Help a Latin-Beginner out !!

I just started learning Greek and have a year of Latin(with an equivalent of 3 years Latin grammar instruction).

I'm not from NZ though. I'm over in Texas, USA.

Question about the D'Ooge Key

Hello all,

I just started with the D'Ooge method this weekend, although I have previously (briefly) studied Latin with the French Assimil method.

I have two (very basic) questions garding the keys:

-In paragraph 22, page 13 of the book, exercise 6:

Rosam in comis habet.

The key says that the predicate is "in comis habet", yet as Rosam is the direct object, shouldn't the whole sentence be a predicate (and the subject is merely ...

Heu, omnes! I've been kind of embarrassed about this for a while, but I don't feel totally confident that I understand the vocative forms.

Naturally, any second declension masculine noun goes from -us to -e.

Also, nomina ending in -ius, and filius, become simply -i (as in, Quid petis, o fili?, or, Multas gratias, Tuli!)

And as for nouns that end in -eus, they also become -i, correct? So what otherwise might be mee amice ...

Salve everyone!
I'd like to introduce myself.
I'm a sophmore in high school at Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights, Illinois. This coming year will be my second year of Latin, Jenny's Latin that is (I heard Jenny's Latin is college level. Is that true?).

Classical texts in original Greek/Latin

Hi guys,

My question is, at least on the surface, a fairly simple one. A colleague and I had a conversation a few days ago, and essentially he wants to get in to the publishing business - he would provide funds to set up a new publishing company, with press et al.

Now the weak link in all of this is that he doesn't have anything to print. Another friend of ours was hoping to ...

no spaces

I don't remember where I heard this, but can anyone confirm if it is true that biblical Greek had no spaces between words or sentences.
