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 ?

Who was Homer?

I was speaking with someone today, who considers himself as quite a literary critic....we spoke briefly of Homer, I was recalling my fondness for the Odyssey, and he was of the opinion that ther was no such man as Homer. That what we have as Homer today was really a long and drawn out collaboration of many different authors that passed down an oral tradion, until we came to the uniform text that we have ...

Cruel Dawn

beginning "Iam super oceanum" ending "supprime lora manu."
I'm sure this inspired the famous John Donne poem "To the Rising Sun"? Any further information?

Thanks cadoro
