Grammatical Terms

I am not a native English speaker and therefore I sometimes have a little trouble understanding the grammatical terms in English...

I am used to talking about "genitivus partitivus" and "coniunctivus hortativus" and the like...

I'd like to know the English equivalents when reading about Latin grammar in English.

Can someone point me to a reliable concordance?

Thanks very much.

Mathematical vocabulary

Now that whiteoctave has gone :cry: there is no master who might tame me and inspire me to actually do any latin indeed I have not for like a month. It always happens. The only thing I do is write and then I stop for ages.

Now I need some funky mathematical vocabulary because I use them often in insults. Does any one have ...

Now, I gather that the passage ultimately says something along the lines of, "They excuse themselves regarding (their) policy in a previous time."

But why is it that 'consilio' finds itself so far away from the 'ad' preposition that governs it? -- it seems like I've been ...

new method for learning NT Greek. Feedback desired.

Hello all,

I'm developing a novel way to teach and learn Greek. I have a website where this method can be explored.

http://www3.telus.net/norbertre/index.html

You need a Polytonic Greek unicode font to be able to read the stories. There are links on the site where you can download them.

My approach is to teach paradigms and vocabulary in a story context. The user can interact with controls and select things like plural/singular, 1,2 and 3rd person, ...

General translation

I'm very new to Latin, and am questioning my translation of general texts. So I tried translating the following...did it come out right? :) I'd appreciate some help! Thanks!

"Agricola et vitam et fortunam nautae saepe laudat; et poeta vitam et agros agricolae laudat. Sine philosophia avari viri de pecunia sempercogitant: multam pecuniam habent, sed pecunia multa virum avarum non satiat."

Translation: "The famer often praises the ...
