Sanskrit on TextKit?

Hello,
Is anyone here interested in learning Sanskrit? I myself would like to do so once I have reached competency in Latin and Greek.

Are there any plans to include Sanskrit books on Textkit?

Having trouble with the word-order!(and other things)

Hello!
I've just started my Greek studies (I'm all on my own...no teachers) and I have some questions:

When translating (for example "small armies") where should the adj. be placed? Before or after "armies"?

The preposition ")en" (par. 40), when in a sentence preceeding the dative; how exactly does it translate to english...does it become something like "within"?

If anyone has any useful tips on wordorder in general, I would appreciate it!

Thanks! Great Forum!

2 questions, please...

No jokes please. This one's got me scratchin my head:
Officium nautam dē ōtiō hodiē vocat.
Duty calls today sailor's of leisure???

Also, now that you see how new I am to Latin, how long (in years/decades) would it take to understand this guy?

multos gratias et valete bene,
solitario

grammar (accusative sentence)

Forum:

I have a grammatical question relating to the three following sentences.

Note:
--The nominative is italicized.
--The accusative is bold.


Sentences:

1. Arachne est puella. Est puella perita in lana. Picturas pulchras in textili format.

2. Nymphae picturas puellae amant et puellam laudant. Deam quoque laudant et clamant, "Quis est magistra tibi?"

3. Iuppiter est deus. Deus Iuppiter in Olympo habitat. Olim terram Phoeniciam spectat. Puellam Europam spectat et amat. Deus puellam desiderat.


Question: ...

Declining nouns in -ius and -ium

I was wondering if someone could tell me if I am declining these correctly? This is a little confusing.

The book says:
The plural is regular. Note that the -i- of the base is lost only in the genitive singular, and in the vocative of words like filius.


What about the dative and ablative plurals with their -is- endings?

Singular
Nom - praesidium parvum
Gen - praesidi parvi
Acc - praesidium parvum
Dat - praesidio ...

Your greek handwriting style...

Which kind of epsilon do you write? The reversed 3 or a C with a line in the middle? I like the C with a line in the middle, but reversed 3 is a little bit faster to write. Anyways, is there any kind of significance with the difference? I’ve looked at some papyri and I haven’t seen any of the reversed 3 being used. Another weird thing is that I only see Sigma written ...

Teaching Latin to 5th and 6th graders.

Does anyone know a good Latin textbook for 5th and 6th graders? I tutor students who are homeschooled, but usually I work with older (high school age) children whose parents have already chosen a textbook or program. I myself am partial to "Latin for Reading," but I don't think that would work for younger children. Any advice on this would be appreciated.
