Caesaris liber: De Bello Gallico

I've got a query about Caesar's "De Bello Gallico". I'm translating the 7th book and I found the word "conventus"(1st section). What's this conventus?
I don't need a translation but I need to know what this conventus was and why Caesar had to go back to Italy "ad conventus agendos".

BLD Ex 47 #1.3

Quis fortunam pugnae nuntiat?

I translated it to be... Who announces the battle's fortune?

With "Quis" being the genitive of the possessor; "pugnae" being the direct object; and "fortunam" being the indirect object.

But for some reson this doesn't sit right with me. Any help?

greek dialects

Hi again,

I've been searching the internet for more detailed linguistic informations

about the greek dialects ( phonology, syntax etc) but I can't find anything.

Do you know some site with such informations. I don't want to buy

Buck,'s book "Greek Dialects" but I want the information inside it.

Thanx,

Máximo

Greetings from a Beginner

Hello everyone.

I came across this site by luck whilst searching for online based latin teaching sites. I am quite impressed with this site, a fine selection of ebooks.
Anyway, I am totally new to Latin, I think I may have learned the odd word back when I did Classical Civilizations back in college, but I cannot remember a word.
I have downloaded all of the Latin Grammars, I shall look through 'Beginner's Latin Book' ...

reflexive partitive genitive; nostri or nostrum?

Part of ourselves. Pars nostri? ...or Pars nostrum?

If I were to use the first person plural reflexive in the partitive genitive sense would I use nostri or nostrum? I mean nostri is the reflexive form, but would one use the same form in the partive genitive case?

Cambridge Latin Project sucks.

http://www.cambridgescp.com

If they want people to learn latin, they should not charge insane amounts.
And why on earth would you need a teacher? And for Book I of that already stupid Cambridge latin course. I mean, for 300 pretty glossy pages they don't even mention the ablative!

Some organisation should give free, productive services if people are to learn latin. Yes I know that this is unreal, but what about all the money wasted on ...
