Lysias: Please Help

Hi all,

Please consider this piece (part 20) from Lysias' 12th speech, against Eratosthenes (I hope I got it right!):

Does anyone know of any email reflectors dedicated to study of the ancient akkadian language? Cuneiform? A google search didn't show much of anything.

Short and long vowels. How to know?


After I had finally solved my problems with the sounds of the Latin’s Alphabet (once more my thanks Luigi_Pirex) here I am again with a new problem.

How can we tell if a vowel is short or long only by the rules given in #12 of the book (page 18 of pdf).

I’m guessing (D’Ooge doesn’t mention nothing about) that in words that end with a vowel, this last vowel can be short or ...

please help with a quick sentence!

Hey everybody. I was doing my Latin homework and I came across this word: agrum. I looked it up everywhere and cannot find it. Maybe a more experienced Latin speaker would know what it could mean. I am using Oxford's Latin course, part one. The sentence is:
Flaccus agrum arat.
Flaccus is a name, and arat means to plough. But I don't know what agrum is. Thanks a bunch!

Attic Poets?

Are there any poets (or better yet, playwrights if their monologues are in verse) who wrote in Attic and are relatively easy to understand?

Automated Essay Marking - nunc et Latine?

Hello there,

I am working on expanding my software to include Latin as a language for automated essay marking. This marking covers both style and content.

Is there someone who has worked with building software based Latin wordbank(s)? I would like to discuss my options for building an appropriate Latin wordbank with you.

I am learning Latin part-time.

Problems with Textkit PDF files on Pocket PC

I have copied a few PDF files from Textkit over to my Pocket PC over the past year or so, and while most are perfectly readable, I have had problems with a couple of them, for example the Smyth Greek Grammar. when I try navigating to one of the actual pages in the text I get a big gray square and an error message saying "Unknown Filter" or some such. I do not know enough ...

Discerning transitive from intransitive

Salvete omnes,

I am confused by transitive and intransitive verbs. From what I know, a transitive verb is a verb that can be followed by a direct object. Intransitive is just the opposite. That part I understand. But in Latin pugnare is an intransitive verb, correct? But can't pugnare have a direct object? e.g. Hominem pugnavi. Is there anyway that you can easily memorize transitive and intransitive verbs?
