Mi verbs


I am trying to really learn the -mi verbs once and for all. It seems to me that the best way to do this is learn them all at once, noticing the patterns and delving a little into the philology. What I've written here is what I currently know about the verbs in general (what I call 'the three classes') and then my version of the present indicative active of class I (as far ...

Hortor Abduco Compleo?

Can some one tell me if this makes sense, and if so, if it is gramatically correct? I'm trying to come up with a saying or phrase relating to sports compeditions but has to have the intials H, A, and C, in that specific order.

My understanding is, the above means "to encourage, to lead, to complete."

If part or something does not, can you give me suggestions?

http://www.hattrick.org is an online soccer game where you have to buy and sell players, train them, set up the team's lineup to win your league, being promoted to the higher division.
At present almost 500 000 people from 88 countries in the world play it. I find it very very funny, also because there's an active community where you can discuss about the game and other things (even completely OT).
I've been playing for 6 ...

Dulce Et Decorum Est

I have just started studying Latin and I was wondering if anyone could explain a couple of questions about the grammar of Horace's Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. Firstly, I assume 'mori' is some form of infinitive, but I can't find which form it is.

Secondly, if anyone knows the Latin for 'to spy' would they be so kind as to provide it in the same infinitive form as 'mori' is in in ...

Miror quas de religione sententias habeant alii hoc forum frequentantes. Meo iudicio religiones nil praeter superstitiones sunt quae iam extinctae esse debent.

Semper perturbat me quod aliqui mysticus barbatus, qui abhinc multa saecula mortuus est, tantum valere potest apud tot homines in nationibus modernis viventes.

Illi barbati, quamquam iam pulvis sunt, etiamnunc efficiunt ut biliones hominum sicut stulti asini se gerant.

Religio dedecori est generi humano.

Ecquis religionem defendere vult?

Does Anyone Know the Acoustic Guitar?

I'm going to be taking lessons for it in a few days. I got my guitar yesterday. It's black. I can only play a few simple melodies so far. I'll have to wait until properly instructed. However, I have been taking piano for 10 years so i'll have the advantage of being able to read music. Any tips for this beginner?
