Quotes from the Reading Course

One of the things I'm really enjoying about this Reading Course in Homeric Greek book (aside from the fact that I HAVE IT!!!!) is the quotes at the top of each lesson. I'm keeping a running quote list on my computer, and I thought I'd share some of them with the people on the forum. Note that these quotes are taken from a textbook written in 1945.

“The liberal arts college is one of the ...

Xenophon 1:2.7

Entauqa Kurw| basileia hn kai paradeisoj megaj agriwn qhriwn plhrhs, a ekeinoj eqhreuen apo ippou, opote gumna/sai bouloito eauton te kai touj ippouj
I'm having trouble translating this sentence from the place o(pote gumna/sai...
gumnasai is aor opt
bouloito is opt pres
1.I think it should be opt obliqus, is it?
2.If I'm right it is Acc cum Inf, Acc is e(auton Inf is missing(ei)=nai) but then where is Verbum regens?

Caesar agains the Celts

I just picked up this book "Caesar against the Celts" by Ramon L Jimenez. I've only read the first chapter so far and it is very good... engaging and well-written. Has anyone else read this?

Computer terms in Latin


I'm amused. I just received Conversation Latin for Oral Proficiency by John C. Traupman, which had been recommended by others on this site. I was flipping through it and discovered Appendix V: Computer Terms! This is so cool! Three pages of computer terms. Here are some words on the list:

computatrum, ordinatrum (computer)
compulatrulum portabile (laptop)
compactus discus opticus (CDROM)
ex rete prehendere (download)
pagina domestica (home page)
partes programmationis (software)
plagiarius electronicus, effractarius ...

May I just say... Woo-Hoo!!!

They said it couldn't be done...they said it couldn't be found...they said it was out-of-print and unavailable...but the Library proved them wrong!

I posted some time ago about trying to find an old Greek textbook, A Reading Course in Homeric Greek, Volume 1, which has been out of print for some time and can't be found on Amazon, ABEbooks, eBay, or anywhere else. On a whim, I asked the local library if they'd be able ...

Greek Verbs

I have a few questions about verbs, because while writing my vocabulary / flashcard program, I have gotten quite a bit ahead of myself. So...

1) Are there *ANY* verbs that have 1st person dual conjugations? Smyth and Betts & Henry give me the idea that there are not, but I want to make sure. Databases don't handle exceptions very well, so if there are *any* verbs that have 1st person duals, I need to ...

Mystery Quote

Hi, everyone. I'm trying to put together my group's newsletter (by Friday), and one of the contributors wants to include a phrase often quoted by one of his professors long ago... only he can't remember the exact quote, or who originally said it. ::cough:: I'm hoping it will sound familiar to someone here. If you can tell me who said it, fantastic. If you've got the actual Greek text, well, you're my hero. It's something ...

No orange icons...

Aren't the little icons to the left of the message headings supposed to be orange if there are new messages in the thread? That feature doesn't seem to be working for me.

Homeric Dictionary - is it worth it?

I'm reading the Iliad using the LSJ lexicon, however I read on Amazon about the homeric dictionary and some people reported you can read Homer about twice as fast compared to using a regular lexicon. Has anybody used it and can recommend it? Does it have help with odd,unusual forms?
