I need an editor

If anyone who is fairly good with writing could review a tutorial I am working on by some time today, I would be greatly pleased. It concerns Latin, but actually has very little to do with grammar or anything that would be completely foreign to a Greek student. <br /><br />I would much appreciate any criticism of the style/content/methods, but it is a little difficult to criticize myself! Private message me on Textkit, use a ...

Terminology question

Let's say that I'm trying to write a Greek/English flash card program using Visual Basic and an Access database. And let's say that in this program, I intend to group words in the database together in a fashion that makes a modicum of sense. For example, the words:<br /><br /><br />lu/w, lu/eij, lu/ei, lu/omen, lu/ete, lu/ousin<br /><br /><br />would be grouped together under the first person singular lu/w.<br /><br />And i(/ppoj, i(/ppe, i(/ppon, i(/ppou, i(/ppw|, ...

Areopagus

I have no idea how to speak or pronounce ancient Greek (its on the list of things to do) and was wondering if someone could tell me the phonetical (or as close as I can get) English pronounciation of areopagus -> I know it was an Athenian council consisting of mostly ex-arkhontes<br /><br />Thanks!

Soggipussicus

Two nights ago I found a drenched cat sheltering beside my garage. I've decided to call him soggipussicus. This has the advantage that if I find out that he is a she, I can call her soggipussica!<br /> ;D<br />Phil

vetus, veteris

Stuck on 3rd decl adjectives again!<br /><br />vetus, veteris - old.<br /><br />I'm working through both Wheelock and Beginner's Latin Book (downloaded from Textkit), and BLB has declined vetus with an ablative singular vetere, gen plural veterum and neuter nom/acc vetera.<br /><br />Wheelock has it that all 3rd decl adjectives have ablative singular -i, gen plural -ium and neuter nom/acc -ia.<br /><br />Has wheelock oversimplified? If so, how can one tell how 3rd decl adjectives ...
