Bono's Missing Lyrics

Any U2 fans around. Just heard that Bono's missing lyrics from October (1981) have been returned. I have been lamenting the lost lyrics since about '86, never thought they would show up.

I hope they use them for a few new singles.

Infinitive vs. Subjunctive

Salvete omnes!

Can anyone explain me please what the difference is between the infinitive and the subjunctive use in the following case:

Adductus sum hoc facere.
Adductus sum ut hoc fecerem.

When would you use one solution rather than the other? Or is there any one of them wrong?

Gratias plurimas,

Speaking of Latin apps to be developed...

Except for Perseus (which can only be run with an internet connection), there is no Latin dictionary software available that provides information about VOWEL QUANTITY--at least that I know of. Please correct me if I am wrong, because I think such a program would be of great use to classicists. Not only are vowel quantities essential for reading Latin, but they're essential elements of Latin style as well: scanning verse, as well as scanning rhetorical ...

They're Nuts!

What are the analysts, stockbrokers and investors smoking? Google's market share value reached $44 billion dollars today :shock: -- more than twice the market value of General Motors and 1/6 that of General Electric (on any given day, you purchase a GE product!!!). Search engines are here today, gone tomorrow (remember what's its name?). Guess what's going to happen when a better search engine comes along? -- ...

Claude Lancelot's books on Greek and Latin (in Eng. trans.)

I would like to put in a request for a couple of books by Claude Lancelot to be put up on Textkit.com. Specifically A new method of learning the Greek tongue, (1746), and I believe that there is a book on Latin with a similar title. Also, The primitives of the Greek tongue: with rules for derivation . These are fairly obscure books nowadays but I think that they would prove useful both for their ...

Windows interface for William Whitaker's WORDS

It's a little program I put together. There are a few bugs, but for most users it should work without a glitch. I may end up getting a domain, but this address should still remain accessible. Feel free to add a link to any classics related pages.

Nunn's Elements

We have Nunn's Syntax, but what about Nunn's Elements...

Its a beginners learning grammar rather than a reference type.

I think its 1923. Anyone out there know otherwise?

Keller and Russell's Learn to Read Latin

Has anyone used this text before? It's quite nice as it comes with a 550+ page work book to accompany it. From what I've been told it's not unlike Moreland and Fleischer in its approach to the language.

On that note, I have a translation question. I'm a first year university Latin student, so bear with me (I've only got a 75.5%).

Oppida in insula videre poteris.

"You will be able to see the towns ...

commendation for textkit tutorials

A very respected (retired) Greek professor who is one of the moderators of B-Greek (a Biblical Greek e-mail discussion group) praised some of the textkit tutorials.
I don't need this approval to appreciate the textkit tutorials but it was nice to read and it increases my respect for the authors to a higher level.
