Terrebis, terrebam.

<br />Turbamne terrebis? Non terrebam.<br />Will you frighten the crowd? No, I did not frighten the crowd.<br /><br />terrebis is 2nd person singular in the future tense, right?<br />terrebam is 1st person singular in the imperfect tense, right?<br /><br />If that's the case, then why is the question set in future tense while the response is in imperfect tense? I would think that the response would also be in future tense. ???<br /><br />

Greek Texts out of Copyright that, in a Decent, Civilized So

Hello,<br /><br />I'm not sure whether this is the right forum to post text suggestions in; but since I have a mental list, and am fairly confident that Jeff is reading this forum (hi Jeff!), I'll go ahead.<br /><br />The list is based on two factors: what is rare (and therefore hugely expensive, usually impossible for the average independent learner to have access to), and what is helpful if not indispensible while making one's through ...

Love of Latin and Greek = Love of Roman and Greek History?

Just a thought, I know for myself the urge to be able to read Plutarch, Caesar, Pliny, Virgil and the other Latin greats in their native language is a big part of my desire to improve my Latin ASAP (preferably done through osmosis while sleeping but so far no luck). Do any of you feel the same? <br /><br />I am also a Roman and Greek history fanatic and can't get enough of it whether ...

Greek Language and Linguistics

http://www.greek-language.com/<br /><br />This site has sections on: the history of the language from Linear B to the present day; quick reviews and links to online grammars (including textkit ;D ;D) and reviews of print grammars for different stages of the language; lexical aids for classical and koine Greek; manuscripts and writing; plus others perhaps of more interest for the seriously academic.

Thorough Greek Grammar

Does anyone here know of a thorough Greek grammar, which has stood the test of time, is advanced, and is relatively ubiquitous/easy to procure?<br /><br />p.s. I would prefer it if the book were more-or-less THE definitive text on Greek grammar.

Prima nota mea

Haec mea prima nota est. O tempora! O Mores! Haec verba dico quod mirabile videre tantum locum quantum hoc. Dicere in lingua latina... dicere! Hercule!<br />Ego sum discipulus linguae latinae, et est cupiditas mihi discere hanc linguam benissime ut denique doceam alios studios discipulos eam bene scire, et forsan, fieri magistri sese.<br />Est somnium (i.e. visio) mihi.<br />Hehe, salvete boni amici! Quam bonum est esse apud vires similis mentis (sic puto vos...sed si erro, mone ...

Hailing all Testkit users! :)

I just wanted to introduce myself, I am a 19 year old student from Canada and am trying to re-introduce myself to the world of Latin. Thank godness I work in the biggest bookstore chain in Canada (Chapters/Indigo/Coles etc.)! Everyone here seems very friendly and willing to share their knowledge which is great since I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. I am currently working through Wheelocks 6e and of course, the omnipotent BLD!

Third declension rules for Keesa

First off, don't be intimidated; it's easy.<br />Second, the original copy of this miniature guide of mine is on the third page of the 'Casa' thread.<br /><br />The regular rules for the third declension are:<br />(Note: to recognize a third declension noun, you must look at the genitive singular, not the nominative, because sometimes the nominative sg. of a noun resembles that of a noun of another declension. i.e., scelus (neuter) - sin, wrongdoing, evil)<br ...
