Translation Assistance

I've never studied Latin before. I am trying to translate the phrase "Always seek the truth", with the verb in the imperative tense.

By using a dictionary and grammer guide, I translated it as:

"veritas semper quaereo" but was told that "veritas semper petendus" was more accurate. I could not find the verb pertendus in any dictionary. Is this true?

A portkey

A friend and I have recently begun wondering about how to translate a certain term from an English book into Latin. More specifically, it's the word "portkey", created by the author of Harry Potter. In short, a "portkey" is a thing that can be used to instantly transport people from one place to another. However, we find it very difficult to come up with a Latin expression for this, especially because we'd like this Latin ...

Gerunds and Present Participles

Am I right in saying that the present participle is the adjective and gerund is the noun? The -ing forms are totally different.

And what is what I just said in Latin :?

Thanks :)

Be the first to download....

... Latin Prose Composition by North and Hillard. After searching and searching I FINALLY found a 1913 copy overseas. It was badly marked up. I managed to remove most of it, but please excuse the occasional ink spill and underlined word - the former owner(s) was a real doodler with the sad habit of marking within the text and not in the margin.

I'm still in search of a key ...

complete SPIonic key map

hi guys, everyone typing in greek might already have a copy of something like this, but just in case, here's a list of everything in the SPIonic font:

http://www.bsw.org/fonts/SPIonic.htm

note in particular that there's 2 versions for all accents, combinations of accents, &c: one for narrow letters (like iota) and one for wide characters (like omega). so e.g. you'd always use ~, not =, over omega. also the combinations ...

Good Learning Sites

To all,
I am new to this board and I was wondering, though it most likely has been asked and asked and asked again. Are there any good sites online with Latin resources, for learning/re-learning purposes? I took Latin in HS for 4.5 years and went to the Gubernatoris Latina Academia here in VA. I will be heading off to seminary pretty soon and would like to begin to brush up on my Latin skills.

Endings

Is there an easier way to memorize the endings for Latin nouns? I've printed off D'Ooge's chart, and I carry it in my pocket, refer to it through the day, and recite them to myself without looking. Then I start reading my lessons, and I forget them all. Latin is no fun when you can't remember whether this word is nominative, accusative, dative, ablative, or genitive.

I would have thought by now that this wouldn't ...
