A Classical Language Learning Forum

Starting Anew

Well, two days ago some hackors thought it would be funny to deface my forum. I can't say that I wasn't warned about phpBB, but I guess I learned my lesson about that, so I totally revamped my site. Tonight I'm releasing it to the public. Tell me what you guys think about it

Vale! - Hello from Portugal!

Hello to all members! My name is Luís, and I study
classical philology ("Linguas e Literaturas Clássicas",
as we call it here) at the Faculdade de Letras da
Universidade de Lisboa. I'm on my third year now.
It's great to be in a place where so many people
share this common interest for classical culture, so
I think I will have a good time!

Salvete! :D

My denunciation of HarperCollins dictionaries

I denounce them! (thinks to self: much good that will do...)

They produce very good modern foreign language dictionaries, but the book binding sucks. I've only had my German dictionary for about 2 years and the hard cover is getting loose and starting to rip apart. I just recieved my French dictionary and it's in worse condition that my German dictionary. Unfortunately, it wasn't shipped very well. No fun bubble wrap or anything of the ...

Anyone here take the AP Latin exam?

My theory is, that with all the college and high school people here, someone has to have taken it. At least I hope so.

Anyway, (I just found out today that there is no such word as 'anyways'. How odd.) what I want to know is this: how in-depth are the free-response answers supposed to be? I've seen the questions, and they seem to require pretty rudimentary answers, much simpler than the type of analysis ...

Small translation... "Partus"

Hello! I am attempting to translate "The Bill/Invoice of Birth” from German into Latin and have at the moment arrived at "Parti factura".

I was wondering if anyone here in the forum had any other ideas? I'm aware that this could be quite boring compared with the other texts discussed here, but would be very glad for any short constructive replies.
