When and how Achilleus died?

In Odyssey Achilles is said to have died in Troy. And there's the description of his funeral. But there's nothing much said about the scene of his death. If he's shot on his ankle or heel, or in what situation death had come upon him to draw shadows over his eyes, there's nothing described. Where among the Greek epic poems can I find the scene of his death?
And what was Achilleus' real weak point? ...

aspirated rho

Where does the aspiration go?


i.e. Is it before, during, or after the rho?

(Rho seems hard enough to pronounce, even without the aspiration.)

neolatin and converational latin

Two questions! :)

1) I'm looking for an online lexicon of neolatin and have not been able to find anything useful. Any ideas?

2) Does anyone have "Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency: Phrasebook and Dictionary" by John Traupman? I'm wondering whether it would have some of the vocab that I'm looking for. What all does it cover? Does it include slang, profanities, technological terms, etc?

Clarification

The young gentleman in the foreground is a character named "Pete" from an old Nickelodeon t.v. show called "Pete and Pete". He is not me, as some people have been led to believe by a deceptive bishop.

Gradus ad Parnassus

Would anyone think that Fux's Gradus ad Parnassus would be a good choice? I know that it is post-classical, but it gives a very different insight into Latin (and it's good for music students). What does anyone else think?

The Best Film Ever

No it's not Troy. Why is such a fuss made? Why do people even try to beat the classics?

Who is there who can deny that DEEP IMPACT is the best film ever?

Deep Impact like Jurassic Park always makes me cry.

You think I am joking don't you.

BLD §§ 201-205 Perfect Passive Participle

I'm having a mental block with how to "inflect" the perfect passive.

1. Is this called inflection because of the dual nature of the form? As opposed to decline or conjugate?

2. As I understand the construction of a compound case, you would decline the base like bonus, -a, -um. However, I can't quite see where you would use anything but a one case: nominative. It must agree with the word it modifies in gender, ...
