BBG workbook chapter 9 line 14 (second edition)

This line reads as follows; "e)n toi=j lo/goij Daui\d toi=j e)sxa/toij e)sti\n o( a)riqmo\j ui(w=n Leui\ A)po\ ei)kosaetou=j kai\ e)pa/nw
This sentence means something like; "by the last words of David, this is the number of the the sons of Levi, from twenty years old and over."
My question is; I have to supply the pronoun 'this' in order to make sense of this line. Without having the context of this sentence, can I know ...


Problems with Catullus VIII

I've decided to translate this for my final. It doesn't seem that hard but I am finding some areas confusing...


MISER Catulle, desinas ineptire,
et quod uides perisse perditum ducas.
fulsere quondam candidi tibi soles,
cum uentitabas quo puella ducebat
amata nobis quantum amabitur nulla. 5
ibi illa multa cum iocosa fiebant,
quae tu uolebas nec puella nolebat,
fulsere uere candidi tibi soles.
nunc iam illa non uult: tu quoque impotens noli,
nec quae ...

"Thygater hemon, ..."

I'd like to compose a birth blessing for my daughter.
I'm attending a parents' lesson these weekends and on this coming Saturday I'm supposed to come with one, with which to practice the blessing.

It's supposed to be written in Korean, but I'd like to make a greek version(OR translation), too.

What I'm having in mind is like this.(Okay you laugh at it, but please help me.) :) ...

"The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco

A while back, somebody here (I want to say Carola) mentioned "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco ... so I eventually picked it up. It's a really good murder mystery, and I am having a difficult time putting the book down. It takes place in an Italian abbey in 1327, and the book has Latin scattered throughout the book. Very neat! The have this really cool library too!

Have any of you read ...

Answers to Wheelock?

The self-tutorial exercises have answers, but the normal chapter exercises do not.

I've also been thinking of getting the workbook, but to my dismay...they don't have the answers to either.

Is there any online source that has the answers? I've only found chapters 1-9, and 22-37.

I can't find workbook answers at all.

I can ask a teacher....but I'm not taking the class...so I feel ashamed to ask him though I'm sure he would. (He's ...

Ovid Amores

:cry: I had a Latin exam today, and well... it didn't go too well. I'm quite sure I translated every sentence wrong, but I just couldn't work this one out and neither could my sister who's very good at Latin.
Now I don't know which book this is from, but I think it's probably 1st book.

Dum servat Iuno mutatam cornibus Io,
facta est, ...

Notes on the Greek New Testament

I have just discovered this site, and it looks like a gold mine for anyone interested in NT Greek. Peter Misselbrook has written notes on every book, which include the text, notes on the text, and vocabulary of selected words.

Downloads are not too bad ( 1.9mb bor St Luke), and all in pdf format. :D

Martial 1.13

I borrowed this from the Latin Library, it is also on page 281 of Wheelock's (6th Edition). I didn't use the Wheelock's edition because I wanted to see how I would do without any footnotes. I would like someone (or a few people) to look over my translation, please. It's a very nice poem, both in rhythm and in meaning.

quem de uisceribus strinxerat ipsa suis, ...

Greek or Latin first?

I would like to learn the classics in chronological order. My reason is that I want to be able to trace the development of ideas in the order that they appear. To do do that, it seems to me I should learn ancient Greek first. However, I am under the impression that students in the trivium generally learn Latin first and then Greek. I would definitely like to learn both. What are the pros and ...
