Homeschooling (from Third Declension)

Continued from Third Declension, Learning Latin Forum...<br /><br />Yes, I live in Alabama, America. Homeschooling is becoming more common now, but when I started, it was still outside of what normal, acceptable people did. Not even my grandparents thought we'd make it, but we did...I just took my standardized graduation test a couple of weeks ago (a year late, unfortunately, because it's expensive, and I had to save up for it), and I should know ...

To whom, which have Herbert Weir Smyth's Greek Grammar...

How long did it take for you to master the many rules and exceptions outlined in the first 48 pages or so?<br /><br />I personally find the abundance of information overwhelming - particularly as I am reading Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar, and Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar, contemporaneously.<br /><br />Can anyone tell me that it is not entirely necessary to remember ALL of the information on those pages?

Smyth Grammar

Dear Jeff and colleagues<br /><br />Hello from Canberra (Australia)<br /><br />Just letting you know that I found Smyth's grammar on the following site: www.ccel.org. If you type 'smyth' into search, it takes you to http://pascal.calvin.edu/cgi-bin/htsearch?words=smyth. Looks like they have scanned it in. <br /><br />You might like to check this out, as it might save someone some work.<br /><br />Let me know what ...

Religion or not

On the faint hope that a flame war isn't a flame war if you call it a debate, could we please move the discussion in "I am worried for you people" down here to the Academy? It really doesn't belong in the open forum. And remember that discussing your opinions nicely makes more of an impression on your hearers (or, in this case, readers) than angry comments. <br /><br />Keesa

Comma vs. period (was: thorough Greek grammar)

The Netherlands, actually. It has been some time, but the Dutch state originated from a war against the Spanish.<br />I think continental Europe uses a comma instead of a period in this context.<br /><br />Ptolemaios

Defective verbs

Quoting klewlis:<br /><br />Quote from: Blasius on Today at 12:30:34am <br />permulti = very many; but you must always check it on your lexicon to see whether the verb/noun to which you have added the prefix "per" was used or not by classical authors.<br /> <br />why? can't i use it anyway even if they didn't? (or maybe they did and we just don't have record of it ;) ...
