Suggestions for a Beginner

I've decided to study Greek.





I've also decided to take 6 or 7 college courses and learn as much as I can of about 10 other languages when I have the time/energy to do it. Luckily I'm not working right now :?


..About those 10 languages, I may have cheated a bit, because I counted languages that have so far proven fairly similar to each other, i.e. ...

HELP!!

Ok....so it isn't as urgent as I made it seem in the topic, but I got your attention, NO?? I was wondering if any of you (especially those of you in America) if you know any programs, places, universities, colleges, benefactors, etc.... that help to fund college educations. I'm just looking for a scholarship that might pay my way for school due to a useless talent (namely, Latin skill). LoL....any ideas ppl?? Thanks...

Wheelock's Latin accessory books.

I have decided to start teaching myself Latin and thanks to help from benissimus I decided to get Wheelock's Latin. I picked it up at my a local bookstore. Soon I will buy 38 Latin stories and I have been wondering about a few other book type things that are offered.

http://www.textkit.com/a_Workbook_for_Wheelock__Latin__3rd_Edition__Revised-0060956429.html

http://www.textkit.com/a_Vocabulary_Cards_and_Grammatical_Forms_Summary_for_Wheelock__Latin-0865165572.html I was thinking that I might learn more making cards myself.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Translation for the word "Adore"

Merriam webster says that the word "adore" as in "I adore my daughter" comes from the Latin word "adorare"

I'm wondering if this is correct, and also if you might be able suggest an authentic looking old type Latin font.

Thanks in advance!!!!

Question about the D'Ooge Key

I have two (very basic) questions garding the keys:

-In paragraph 22, page 13 of the book, exercise 6:

Vocatives

Heu, omnes! I've been kind of embarrassed about this for a while, but I don't feel totally confident that I understand the vocative forms.

Naturally, any second declension masculine noun goes from -us to -e.

Also, nomina ending in -ius, and filius, become simply -i (as in, Quid petis, o fili?, or, Multas gratias, Tuli!)

And as for nouns that end in -eus, they also become -i, correct? So what otherwise might be mee amice ...

This coming year will be my second year of Latin, Jenny's Latin that is (I heard Jenny's Latin is college level. Is that true?).
