translation help

Pax vobis,

As an exercise, I translate my relatives' postcards into Latin. How did I do on this one from my grand son?

Introduction - Peter Keller


My name is Peter Keller. I've been interested in learning Ancient Greek for a few years but only now have I been able to devote enough time to it to get anywhere. I'm interested in guitar playing (speed metal/spanish classical), artistry (drawing, pen & ink, charcoal), languages (both human and programming), all things related to computer programming/algorithms (especially AI and graphics), and mathematics. I'm generally an autodidact but I do have a college degree ...

Why does Latin not have an emphatic yes or no? And how is it that Spanish and French do have these words?

definite article with names

Hello, I have a very basic question. I'm not actually learning Greek, I'm just using Perseus to do some research and I've come across a Greek usage that I want to check.

What does it mean when the definite article is used with a name? Specifically, I was looking for instances of the name *)/arghn (Argen) and found two different usages. One was the name for one of the kyklopes, along with Brontes and Steropes. ...

Teaching Latin Suggestions

Ok, I'm going to teach someone Latin, I'll probably be using Ecce Romani (I own the collection) but in a hurried pace, and then move on to Eutropius. Sounds good? What about dollars? $15 American sounds OK? Any suggestions?

negated optative

If an optative could be translated by -You may take that-.
How would it be translated if the optative were negated.
-You may not take that- sounds a lot like it should be an imperative.
Can this be a correct translation?

Free Vocab Program.

There is a cool vocab program available for Greek, Hebrew, and a few other languages. It includes modules for Mounce. You can also create new modules in almost any language. The website is: http://www.aireville.fsnet.co.uk/vocabworks/.
Also, I am currently working on a project to create Greek individual audio files, with one WAV file for each word. Anyone who is interested in helping should visit: http://www.dhq.nu/koinegreek/ ...
