A Classical Language Learning Forum


Hi everyone,
I am new to Textkit and Latin. I am an independent learner and have just finished Chapter 2 in Wheelock's.
I homeschool my two kids, ages 10 & 8 and I hope to teach them Latin in the next couple of years or so.

I was wondering if anyone knew where i could find an Attic greek dictionary on-line for free. I figure there has to be one out there somewhere, or if anyone knows of a Latin Dic.
Thank you

So, I'm trying to translate this bit from Plutarch. The reference says "Plutarch, Dem. 7". But I can't figure out what work this is... I want to find an english translation so I can check my work. Perseus doesn't seem to have it. Does anyone know what this is and where I can find it?

More Verse: Hipponactean Tetrameters

- is a long that must remain so

x is anceps, either long or short

The usual trochaic tetramenter catalectic is ...

easy traslation


I started to learn Latin and trying to translate some easy passages. I want to ask an easy sentence to translate:
'Damocles, amicus Dionysii, divitias tyranni semper laudabat et dicebat Dionysium fortunae filium esse.'

I translated this sentence like that: Damocles, the friend of Dionysius, praised the riches of the tyrants and always said that the fortune of Dionysius is his son.

Is that correct? I believe it's not ... please help..

Which is the correct way to pronounce this?
