Greek and Latin cognates --any good books?

I like memorizing words through etymology study. Is there a good book that deals with Latin and Greek cognate vocabulary?

Newton, Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica

http://dibinst.mit.edu/BURNDY/Collectio ... ncipia.htm

I once posted this link on the Open Board. This post is just to save it from amnesia. :D

Written in neo-latin.
The maestro describes the classical physics without using calculus, in the style that reminds of Euclid's Elements.

Readers?

I am enjoying going through Pharr's book but I am not all that satisfied with my progress. The amount of Greek material I read is limited to what is in the text book. Considering that I have to learn new grammar, paradigms and vocabulary before I can move on to a new chapter, the amount of Greek reading I am exposed to is small.
Is there such a thing as a reader that kind of ...

Never thought, I might say this...but Vocabulary Sources?

Hello I've just completed the Words and Forms section of Latin For Beginners having learned all the vocabulary prescribed. But when I read the Gallic War for which this book prepares me I still frustratingly must look at dictionary often. I dislike this. Are there any other vocabulary sets, preferably for the Gallic war, whence I might broaden my vocabulary in order that I read it nicely? I will probably ask for a Virgil, Juve ...

adjective agreement

Hello

Quick beginner-type question - can anyone clarify adjective agreement a little for me.

Im not sure about how adjectives agree with nouns because it seems that an adjective can agree and yet have a different ending

for example

page 14 first greek book

- machaira agathei (scuse the spelling dont have the font here at work)

- a good sabre

- why - not machaira agatha - ?

Thanks in advance,

Nathan

JWW's Para 41, #1

Hi, guys,

I think there's something wrong with the translation given for Para 41 #1:

Oi)ki/ai mikrai/ shoul d be translated as (some) houses are small,

because the adjective comes after the noun and the verb to be is to be

ommited. To say Small houses with such a structure we should say

oi)ki/ai ai) mikrai/, right?
