Locutio

http://www.locutio.com/index.php3

This French site has things some of us have long been looking for: a dictionary of synonyms (admittedly you have to know French to be able to understand it), easy readings (all in Latin so you don't really need to know French). Of course those who know French will get more out of it, but even if you don't you could still get something.

Abbreviations

I'm looking at a painting of the triumphs held after Julius Caesar's victories, and some people are carrying banners. I know the "SPQR" stand for "Senatus populusque Romanus," but does anyone know what the other letters stand for? The Romans are a little overly fond of abbreviation I think... This is roughly what they look like:

Banner 1
SPQR IVLIVS CAESAR P-M-

Banner 2
SPQR DIVO IVLIO CÆSARI D-P-P-P-


Oh yeah, and what does SPQR ...

Dicere et facere sunt res non eaedem.

Well, people - that was meant to say "saying and doing are not the same..." It looks dodgy to say the least but "si linguae exercitae sunt, intelligentur bene"...I think (I couldn't say spoken, you know why) Correct as you see fit.

Many people say "I'm going to learn this language and do this language" but in my experience it goes on for a while then the flame extinguished.

It comes at a time when ...

courage!

there is a passage (of Plutarch I think) where a greek spy got his hands cut by Persians without showing any pain. Can anybody help me in finding the book with this story?
Thanks a lot, Pierantonio

Pronunciation question

Is there a difference between the long a and the short o in Latin pronunciation? In the book, Latin: An Intensive Course, father is used for the long a and often is used for the short o. It seems to me that the two sounds are the same. Is there a difference?

M&F Unit 12 Latin to English

I'm having problems with this isolated sentence from the exercise:

His tantis in rebus est tuum videre quid agatur.

Is this close?

In these many matters it is your (job? role?) to see what is to be done.

Aeneas and Beer

We're reading Vergil in my Latin class and I thought you all might be interested. The topic of the day was "Would you ask Aeneas out to have a few of beers? Why or why not?"

Help on a project of mine

Yesterday as a joke my Latin teacher remarked how nice it would be if the paper put out several articles in Latin every year. Now she wasn't being serious at all (we had been discussing Harrius Potter and the like just prior to this) but I thought what if this could actually occur.

However, I am on Chapter 7 of Wheelock and thus totally inable to translate an article into Latin.

If anyone would like ...
