A Classical Language Learning Forum

Stupid question:

I realise this question is no sign of intelligence, but in my socratic wisdom I hereby declare myself ignorant and will question everything.

Sunday night I watched this show on tv about Napoleon, some mini-series or something of that kind. Now, to make a long story really short, they were going to sound the Te Deum in church. I don't understand 'Te Deum', just those two words. How does it translate? You to God? or ...

Aoidoi.org tries PDF

I've finally found a LaTeX font for Greek which paints nicely in PDF. The one I use to generate the web pages at Aoidoi.org is very attractive, but when turned into PDF goes all furry and nearly impossible to read.

Here's a quick example of how the PDFs will look: 11 lines of Hesiod. Some of the accents may be wrong - the new font uses a different encoding than the old system. Comments on ...

Jeff's holiday

We haven't heard anything from Jeff on holidays in Sydney. Does this mean he is enjoying himself so much he's forgotten about us? Or did he ignore a shark alert? C'mon Jeff - a postcard? is that too much to ask?

I have just finished my Latin exam this morning and can now get back to posting on Textkit. Not to mention some music practising, cleaning up the house, gardening, talking to husband....

My one christmas recommendation.

I promise you people solemnly, as my latin people, that if you watch "I'm Alan Partridge" you will laugh 50 times more than you did during, The Life of Brian, let's say, which is to its credit very funny. I'm sure all of you will appreciate this (and perhaps notice his great unique idiosyncrasy, even without hearing his legendary speaking manner):

Hi All

For those of you who can't get enough of Wheelock, there's a site online which has supplementary exercises which correspond with the book by chapter. I"ve also posted a link to a similar site for Athenaze in the learning Greek section of the forum. Enjoy!

Athenaze Website

Hi all

Wow... it's been a while since I posted here. For those of you who are learning Greek with the Athenaze textbooks, the following site may be of some use to you. It has various exercises which correspond to the books by chapter. There is also one for the Wheelock text, which I'll post in the learning Latin section of the forum.

school marks

each country has its own system for school marks, can you explain me how does it work in yours?
In Italy marks are form 0 to 10:
0 – you don’t open your mouth
1 – you open your mouth but all you say is wrong
2 – you say something but you’re sleeping and you talk about the last football match
3 – seriously low
4 – less seriously low
5 – nearly pass ...

M&F Unit 13 Latin to English

Page 226:

11 b) Duo consules exposuerunt se quosdam duces navibus praefecturos esse.

11 c) Duo consules exposuerunt se quosdam duces navibus praefecturos

11 b) The two consuls explained that they were going to put certain leaders in command of the ships.

But what's the difference in 11 c)? Is the esse optional and they actually mean the same or is there some difference I'm not seeing?
