top downloads of the week

I wrote a new page that (hopefully) will provide a nice report on the top downloads over the past 7 days.<br /><br />As Textkit's online contentgrows, it becomes harder and harder for visitors to find out what's currently 'hot' by looking at the homepage all time top downloads reports because the files on that report have a time advantage. <br /><br />This page should help:<br /><br />http://www.textkit.com/top-downloads.php<br /><br />Test it out.. I don't know if ...

pronunciation of chi and rho

X is, in the alphabet table, said to be like german 'ch', while in the text the description is not so simple. With some of the sound samples you can find on the web, it's more like that k is like 'k' in 'sky' and x is like 'k' in 'key'. (My native tongue distinguishes them, tho' the orthography for foreign words don't allow such elaborate distinction) Okay, there're variety of pronunciations and you might ...

Hebdomekonta

Wow, interesting is the story of LXX. It's more detailed than that in the preface of my copy of LXX.<br />(P.S. Uh, well this is about the newly added "selections from Septuagint,..." on the home page)<br /><br />I saw the first example of imperative of third person in genesis 1:3 geneqh/tw fw=j .<br /><br />Now, as for the imperative, a question arises:<br />What of the imperative of the first person? How could I translate this ...

LATO - Greek Texts meta page

http://gainsford.tripod.com/lato/index.htm<br /><br />"Library of Ancient Texts Online" is a catalog of web links to other sites which have Ancient Greek texts. As of Aug/2003 it is just beginning, but promises to be a very useful resource.

Classical vs Medieval Latin

I discovered just recently that my expected next-step-in-Classical-Latin course is going to be a Medieval Latin course instead. It starts next week - or, at least, the term does, 'cause the course is by correspondence, again, as usual....<br /><br />I'm wondering if anyone out there has done anything with Medieval Latin as well as Classical, and if there is any advice before I jump off the cliff into something at least slightly new.....<br /><br />Much ...

Is the story-line of the Iliad historically acurate?

I am getting into the story of the Iliad.<br />This %@*&^* Agamemnon who supposedly is on an honourable mision but kidnaps the daughter of a priest doing it.<br />I wish I could read Greek a little faster in order to find out what happens next.<br />I am wondering if the Iliad is historically acurate or if there was a lot of "poetic license used.

Latin Vocab List

Ah, Hello. Browsing the internet for help with learning latin vocabulary, I came across this list of 1000-odd words compiled by an English examining board - apparently it's supposed to help people prepare for AS-level exams (the kind English and Welsh 17 year olds take). Nevertheless, it's quite nice to see how many words you know:<br /><br />http://www.ocr.org.uk/OCR/WebSite/Data/Publication/Teacher%20Support%20%26%20Coursework%20Guidance/cquartetOCRTempFileD1aYC6kb96.pdf<br /><br />Apparently fluent non-native speakers of a modern language know 10000 words...<br /><br /> ...

Book recommendation, please

Hello to everybody!<br />I did an intensive course in Ancient Greek two years ago and I would like to pick it up again. Could somebody recommend me what Greek author to read in order to review all what I studied? Homer? I would classify myself as an intermediate student. Thanks.

M&F Unit 1 Pg35 #19

<br />I haven't made much progress with Latin these last two weeks so I only have one small question. I couldn't work out #19 on Pg35 of M&F. The second part of the sentence boggles me with it's use of the DAT or ABL. After much revision, this is what I've come up with:<br /><br />Feminae est forma, fama nautae; feminis est forma, fama nautis.<br /><br />Beauty is women, report/opinion of the sailors; beauty is ...
