Latin Trans.

Hello everyone, I've wanted to get a tattoo for the longest time. I wanted something different and I'm very interested in old/dead languages and such. At first I decided to get the sigil for the archangle Michael, which happens to be whom I'm named after. (see http://www.steliart.com/angelology_7_sigils.html ). I saw Angelina Jolies latin tattoo and I thought it was cool. It just doesn't fit me. Can you guys trans. ...

Eats, Shoots & Leaves

Quite off topic even for an open forum it may be, but it's at least about linguistics, so, just a little tolerance, please. :)

Comparative Grammar

i'm looking for a downloadable comparative grammar for Latin and Greek, as I'm learning the two languages at the same time and think some clearer and more systematic explanation for the similarities and differences of them are quite useful to me.
I don't know if there are such public domain books online. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Thank u.

Pages still missing....

well I have seen that the problem of missing pages had already been discussed here, so I thought it will be ok for my downloaded file. But as I went though it today morning, I found the missing pages are not yet added in, and pp.173-188 are also strangely disappeared...
can anyone help correcting it?

I came, I saw, I conquered!

Out of curiosity, how do you translate I came, I saw, I conquered (Veni, vidi, vici.) into Greek?

Vocabulary differences bt Funk and Wagnalls and Wheelock

I notice that Wheelock's vocabulary entries differ from entries in my Naw Cassell's Latin Dictionary (F & W 1968). For example, Wheelock supplies the entry fugiO, fugere, fUgI, fugitUrum, whereas F & W lists the fourth principle part as being 'fugitum'. What are the morphological differences? Is Wheelock drawing on later Latin, and F & W merely on the classical authors it cites below its entries?

Learning Reading Greek

Hello everybody,

I'm looking for a kind of guide for reading greek.

How can I learn to read greek ?

Is there something like a child book for learning reading greek ?

And no advice, I should take the ABC, I mean greek reading, also with the accents.

Thank you
