Supporting Textkit

There have been so many great textbook recommendations made on this forum that it has become clear to me that visitors are in need of helpful book suggestions in addition to free downloads and a very unique and growing learning community.<br /><br />Textkit is always in need of non-intrusive ways of generating revenue (we currently have none) to help off-set our staggering operating expenses.<br /><br />So it occurred to me that perhaps an affiliate relationship ...

sync forms.

From the Perseus entry for consuesco:<br /><br />cons&#365;esco , su&#275;vi, su&#275;tum, 3 (in the tempp. perff. the sync. forms prevail: consuesti, consuestis, consuerunt; consueram, etc.; consuero, etc.; consuerim, etc.; consuessem, etc.; consuesse. Thus also consu&#275;mus = consuevimus, Prop. 1, 7, 5 ), v. a. and n. <br /><br />Could someone refresh my memory as to what sync. forms might be? I vaguely recall something about the -esc- in verbs ending in -esco sometimes dropping out, ...

The Third Declension

Everyone can agree that the third declension is evil, right? (I like to joke with my teacher and blame it on her.) Well just how evil is it?

I'm not following this

I'm reading Nepos's life of Lysander at the moment and I'm having problems with the first paragraph.<br /><br />My first problem is in this part:<br /><br />Lysander Lacedaemonius magnam reliquit sui famam, magis felicitate quam virtute partam. Atheniensis enim in Peloponnesios sexto et vicesimo anno bellum gerentes confecisse apparet. id qua ratione consecutus sit, non latet.<br /><br />What is the subject of apparet? Is it impersonal? In which case I make the sentence: It appears ...

Question regarding accent marks.

What do the accute and grave acent marks indicate? I do not refer to those that govern breathing sounds (i.e., smooth-breathing and rough breathing). Also, what do the circumflex and the wierd half-circle thing indicate?

Hi, all!

Hi!<br /><br />I'm Myungsunn, from Korea. Recently joined the forum. I'm self-tutoring greek in a really slow progress. From time to time when I get leisure and when I feel like. I'm also interested in other old languages that will lead me to the ancient cultures, when people began to create from nothing. But I'm no dedicated student of humanties. It's like my hobby to learn the old tongues.<br /><br />----<br /><br />I'm currently editing ...

My own principle (not based on Freuds)

(I had thought of this before I heard of Sigmund Freud's law.)<br /><br />Some time ago, while sitting pondering, I had a thought: The single, most fundamental rule, upon which every other rule of human behaviour is predicated, is my rule, with the apt appellation, "The Law of Dividends". <br />This law states that nothing CAN be done that isn't within certain parameters of return for oneself. To attempt to violate the law is to ...

Word of the day Week of 8/18

Just a fun word:<br /><br />Persalutare: to salute one after another<br /><br />I came across this word in my Latin-Dutch dictionary, and I had this vision of a birthday party, everbody sitting everywhere, and each time someone new comes in they all have to stand up of for shaking hands and kisses. People, I'll skip the persalutatio today :).<br /><br />Ingrid

product wishlist

The question in the latin forum about calendars brought back an old idea for me... wouldn't it be great if someone were to start making latin products such as calendars, greeting cards, etc in latin and greek? <br /><br />or even if someone were to pull together what is there into one site... and redistribute... hm, maybe *I* should do that. <br /><br />i think there are latin fridge poetry magnets...<br /><br />if *someone* were ...
