Profile Language Pack

<br />There's a little section near the bottom of Profile editing called "Language Pack You Wish to Use". Does anyone know what it means? Is there any difference viewing this website when you choose Dutch, German or Finish? Why aren't other languages offered as options?<br /><br />

Question regarding the passive periphrastic tense.

If the passive periphrastic employs the dative case in place of the ablative of agent to specify the person by whom the action was completed, how then would one specify an indirect object employing the passive periphrastic? ???<br /><br />e.g. Hic liber mihi laudatus est - I ought to read this book.<br /><br />How would one say "I ought to read this book to you"?<br /><br />Normally the ablative would be used to specify the ...

Which one, which one?

Which Latin reader should I start with? If they're all above my level, which one should I dangle in front of my nose to keep me going in my grammar books on slump days? There are so many to choose from...<br /><br />Keesa

"Just D'Ooge It" (From Prospecting in Used Booksto

It seemed to me that "Prospecting in Used Bookstores" was getting a bit off topic (:P), so I moved over here...here's the last post from "Prospecting". <br /><br />Quote from: mariek on Today at 03:01:06pm <br /><br />(Although I must admit that green doesn't flatter me )<br /><br /><br /> <br /><br /><br />Me, either.

Why Latin? (Spinoff from Mythology in Latin)

Did you guys learn latin just out of curiosity or is it related with your studies/jobs??<br /><br />Regards,<br /><br />Fulya <br /><br />I was actually learning Greek, to get a head start for college and to read Homer, but when I looked at all the great Latin resources, I couldn't pass it up! I love learning new languages, as I'm sure you'll realize when you look around the forum. <br /><br />Keesa

Just wondering...

This isn't really important, but I was wondering if anyone knew the real words to Stars and Stripes Forever <br />I know the words I've heard all my life, "Be kind to your web-footed friend, for a duck maybe somebody's mother" But I would really like to know the real words, anyone?

Helpful(I hope)Hint

Something I do to help me learn, is copying what I'm working on. For example, my Bible Study is nothing but copying, word for word, the entire Bible. I'm going to try this with Latin (as soon as I've learned a little more), but I'm going to use a slight twist. I'm going to find one of my favorite books, and copy it in into Latin. (If there is any reason why this would be ...

Pronunciation

I was wondering how exactly are you supposed to pronounce Latin? I can copy the accents of lots of different nationalities, and I was wondering which accent Latin is more like, if any?
