A London Gem for Classicists

Unsworths Booksellers at 12 Bloomsbury St - if you're ever in London, this is *THE* bookstore to check out!

I wandered in, rather by accident, a few days ago - was heading back from the British Museum when I lost my way and pulled into the nearest shop to escape the cold. (I'm sure the Canadians here will be laughing at what I call cold weather, but after Mauritius, English winter is **freezing**.)

You can ...

Users Browsing this Forum...None?

It's the funniest thing; sometimes when I'm in a forum, it will say "Users Browsing this forum: Keesa (and anyone else who happens to be on)". Other times, though, it says, "Users browsing this forum: none."

Does this mean that I don't really exist? :cry:

Prose Composition II.

Have a go, this will be interesting. I have this text as an official standard. Although I'm not telling you what. And I've replaced many words, and added vocabulary below. Translate as it is, no showboating, fancy doing etc. Notate bene: Les Supines sont interdites. Supines sitae non sunt(I'm guessing the word for Supines if you haven't already guessed).

Anyway, translate:

"Supines are forbidden.

Once Piglet, who had been a very famous Ostrich a many ...

What materials are the best?

I am new to Latin but I had some previous experience in foreign (romance) languages such as French and Spanish. So I am wondering if there are any great materials avaliable for my latin, preferably materials in which jargons are minimized. Looking forward to your reply.

Cheers

Mi

Today I say the English version of 'Oliver Twist' on Tv.
And I remarked that they always use the word 'mi' for 'mine' or 'my'.
In 'Keaping up appearences' they do the same.
And we also say 'milady' and sometimes also 'milord'. These words even became famous in frensh.

So, does anyone know if they are dialectical variants? Who do use them?

Cicero

After the Christmas holidays we'll be translating Cicero - 'De re publica' (well, what's left of it), but I've sort of forgotten everything I knew about Cicero, which wasn't much in the first place :P .
Because all the classes already translated some speeches by Cicero, my teacher won't bother at all to tell us anything about Cicero's language :? ...

Poetic Edda CD

Sounds llike close to what I was looking for: A Poetic Edda audio book,

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/ ... 17-8034424

P.S.

Ah! Here's the longer, 2-CD ...
