A Classical Language Learning Forum


Hello all,

I have been reading the excellent posts on this website for a spell and thought I should register and introduce myself. I am a Latin enthusiast with a lot more to learn.

Loeb Classical Library...suggestions needed!

After searching in vain for the better part of two years I finally located a bookstore in Toronto that regularly carries Loeb's. I was estatic until I started adding up totals and realized that I'd either have to become a millionaire or selectively choose which to purchase. I believe there are close to 500 titles currently available and sadly I only own four.

using abhinc

I'm confused about the correct way to say 'three days ago'. My Longmans' book says abhinc plus accusative. N&H also shows an example with abhinc followed by the accusative: 'three days ago - abhinc tres dies' but in the key to the exercises, the time is in the ablative: (36.9)'I saw my friend at Carthage three months ago - Tribus abhinc mensibus Carthagini meum amicum vidi'
Should the time be ablative or accusative?

Conversational Greek

Hello, all!

Is there any online resource about conversational Ancient Greek? My searches only yield modern Greek results.

I'm looking for basic stuff like 'hello', 'goodbye', 'how are you', weather, etc. The kind of stuff you might find in one of those little travel books.
