Delayed Introduction

Hello all!

Seeing that I signed up here almost a year ago, it seems a little late for an introduction. But I believe I never made one in the first place, and better late than never eh?

My name is Anders and I'm a Danish high school student primarily enrolled in math and physics courses, but I'm very interested in Latin and Roman culture and managed to get my Danish teacher (who also happens to ...

Finite forms of verbs

Out of curiosity:
Wheelock says that the student has learned to conjugate a verb in all of its finite forms after learning the subjunctive. What does he mean by finite forms? Since there are finite forms of verbs, are there also infinite forms?

Settled (rev 1)

Okay. I've broken up my poll/thread to see where people are. Some people agree with the first statement, but disagree with the 2nd. Some disagree entirely. My main focus was the 1st sentence. So I've broken it up. Into 2 parts.

neos tis

Good day!,

I'm new to this forum. I've been reading some posts from time to time previously but haven't registered till now.
I'm a student, studying inter alia classical lingustics at Warsaw University. Some say I'm blessed to know Polish language because its grammar is so similar to that of Greek & Latin. Well, maybe it's a bit more similar than English or German grammar due to its complex flection ...

I have no previous experience with Latin but have started D'Ooge (about 2 weeks ago). I am trying to get a head start on whatever program I get for her. Does anyone have experience (good or bad) with any of the childrens programs out there.

Thanks, in advance, for any ...

plurimum in "De Re Rustica"


I'm reading Columella's De Re Rustica and I'm stuck on a sentence:

"Et quoniam hunc sexum custodiae et diligentiae assignaverat, idcirco timidiorem reddidit quam virilem. Nam metus plurimum confert ad diligentiam custodiendi."

And since he (a god) had assigned this sex (the female) carefulness and diligence, therefore he made it more timid than the male. For fear contributes to diligence with caring.

I have a few issues here; first of all, there's no direct ...

learning Latin

Is there a good course that teaches Latin as well as how Mounce teaches beginners Greek? Such as an easy to learn book with a CD.

I have it now!!

I have had Mounce's book and CD now for a couple of weeks. It is really good. The CD has been very handy. One thing I have noticed is that pronouncing Greek words do vary with different teachers. I have just tried to go with what Mounce has on his CD which means I have to change some things.

Mounce makes it very simple to understand. I love the way everything is set up. And ...
