Why is it not back in print?!

In all seriousness (albeit tinged with incredulity and of course anger) I do not be understanding why Latin For Beginners is not for sale, for example, on amazon.com. <br /><br />Basically Latin For Beginners beats all competition. Yes Wheelock and M&F (I've looked at these). If a beginner with no Latin knowledge whatsoever wishes that she might learn Latin were to ask me (I don't be biased really, if you y think as I was/be ...

Hey everyone, <br /><br />I was reading a neo-latin poem of N. Mangeot. The poem is entitled 'Vesper'. It sounds really great, but it's a neo-latin one. So some words are used in a different way as in classical Latin. I can perfectly translate it, but I am not really sure of everything. Can someone find an online - translation of this poet by this German neo-latin poet? I searched, but I don't find it. ...

Imperative endings

i)/qi is the 2nd sg. imperative of ei)=mi<br />This is not a regular ending, but ei)=mi seems to be a bit of an odd kind of verb.<br />klu=qi is also an imerative and it has the same ending. Is this ending more regular than I am thinking or am I missing something obvious?<br />Thank you

Pharr section 143 - 6

I'm having a bit of trouble with this line.<br />o( qeo\j e)fiei\j e)xepeuke/a be/lea au)toi=sin ( )Axaioi=sin) e)/ballen<br />Without e)fiei\j this sentence would mean; The god was shooting sharp arrows at them (the Achaeans).<br />I am not sure what to do with e)fiei\j. The vocabulary section of the book says that it is a participle. It would have to be an aorist passive ( what happened to the theta?) The glosses given for e)fi/hmi are ...

Vergil's Dido

:)I will like to know what do you think of Dido, the widowed queen and of Eneas's conduct. Why did Vergil chose such a conduct for his hero?

Well Wheelock chapter 15 wants me to be able to count in Latin... kinda fun. But I have a question:<br /><br />In the appendix where it lists the numbers, it goes up to 20 and then starts jumping by tens. So I'm *assuming* that the rules up to 20 still apply further on, so for example, where I have:<br />septendecim<br />duodeviginti<br />undeviginti<br />viginti<br /><br />do i also have:<br />septenviginti<br />duodetriginta<br />undetriginta<br />triginta<br /><br />etc?<br /><br ...
