A Classical Language Learning Forum

Hello, everyone

My name is Bingley and I am sinking back into my ancient world addiction. <br /><br />I studied Latin and Greek to A Level at school, but seem to have forgotten most of what I ever knew. I'm slowly piecing the scattered fragments of knowledge back again, and am glad to have found a site where I can meet like-minded people.

May I introduce myself?

Skylax omnibus salutem plurimam dicit.<br /><br />As you see, what matters in my case is the use of the English language. But it is an opportunity for me to train a little and for you to exercise skills in linguistic deciphering.<br /><br />As a former Greek and Latin teacher, I spend years teaching rudiments of both languages to French-speaking children in Liege, in the French-speaking part of Belgium. Now I'm retired, living in a green ...

In Need of a Brush-Up

I studied Greek and Latin at school, but that was (agh-hmm) years ago now, and I've found that I've forgotten a lot. Of the books available on this site, which would you most recommend for a brush-up, rather than starting from scratch?

Katharos=pure in Greek, what about in Latin?

Got this from skylax<br /><br />"The original Greek form is Aikaterine (Ekaterini), a word of obscure etymology, which became Katerina.<br />The name became then Catharina in Latin because the Latin-speaking people believed that the name derived from the Greek "katharos", meaning "pure".<br /><br />What would be the best word for pure to match this in Latin? sanctus, castus?<br />

Homeric Greek: A Book for Beginners (Pharr)

Is anyone familiar with this book willing to offer me an opinion of how good of a teaching tool it is? I'm trying to teach myself Greek (I have a strong Latin background) and want to make sure there isn't a better book. Any recommendations or comments would be helpful.<br /><br /><br />Thanks,<br />Noah


Xenophon Translation Question

I am in the process of teaching myself ancient Greek. To that end I am translating Xenophon's Ways and Means. I think I understand the syntax of the following sentence but I am not totally sure. Part of my doubt is centred on the exceeding complexity of the syntactical rules that I am citing. To put it another way, I may be over thinking the sentence. Advice or feedback would be greatfully received. Anyway, here ...
