A Classical Language Learning Forum



I'm an university student in Argentina. I tried learning a little latin some years ago (from textkit), but because of the lack of time, I couldn't continue with it. Last year I began a modern Greek class. (Is ancient Greek similar to modern Greek?). I hope some day I can re take Latin... but well, university is first... Well, at least (as I'm studying Law) I learn some little things in latin: in dubio ...

The best grammar? The best dictionary?

We're compiling a FAQ (frequently asked questions) section for Textkit, to cover a few things that come up a lot on the forum. For Koine matters I need some help.

What is the best Koine reference grammar currently available? If there are several, what level are they directed at? And I need the same information for dictionaries.

I'd prefer not more than 2-3 paragraphs tops for the FAQ answers if possible, so I don't need ...

can you help me improve my memory

there must be someone in this ether who can refer me to history of the subject of memory training...of course I need not translate.

Do you have any knowledge of the latin word "nomenclator".

Is there any truth that Atilla set the nomenclators free, gave them a good salary and expenses, and sent them to Vienna,

Your resident bishop's long-lost avatar

As you have probably guessed I am enduring currently some harsh times. I ask that you have sympathy for me and consider the ereption of my avatar long ago!

The purpose of this is to describe arbitrary iniuries to the bishop and I believe that this should stop, starting with my avatar rights back! What do you wise classicists think? Obviously the decision is left to the higher ...

Classic Rap

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but Sir Mix-A-Lot's song, Baby Got Back (lyrics at http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/sirmixal ... tback.html ) has been translated into Greek and Latin.

The Greek version (with a literal translation back into English) can be found here: http://www.student.richmond.edu/~zp8we/ ... m#_ftnref4

Time to be hassled...

Hi there, just thought i'd introduce myself before I hassled you with all my questions (and there will be lots :) ).
I'm studying a science course at uni, so I'll be learning latin independantly (read: slowly), but that's cool.

edit: oh, and I'll be learning out of Wheelock's. Just got it a few days ago (after a 2 month wait, stupid backordering) and it looks pretty ...

infinitive with nominative?

Hi, everybody:
Here is the beginning of a sentence:

Ei gar ousia te^s en hekasto^i arete^s ho heis hyparchein Logos tou THeou me^ amphibeble^tai, ktl.

The meaning is clear, yet I do not understand why "ousia", "ho", "heis", and "Logos" are in the nominative here, rather then in accusative (as the use of the infinitive "hyparchein" seems to me to require). Is there any rule which could explain this?

Many thanks in advance.
