An Encomium of Oxford

Following on from Why Latin?, Episcopus and Keesa both asked about Oxford. Raya may have heard all this before but here goes.<br /><br />I studied English Language and Literature at Keble College Oxford and enjoyed every moment. Oxford is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and one of the best resourced places to study. Keble is a large, Victorian, coloured-brick edifice to the north of the centre. It was an all-male, drinking-and-rowing college ...

Translation difficulty, please help.

I have translated this sentence a number of times, and, every time I do, it sounds all the more strange to me.<br /><br />Orator exemplum dignum petat ab Demosthene illo, in quo tantum studium tantusque labor fuisse dicu ntur (I spaced that word because the filter thought it was a dirty word.. ahem...) ut impedimenta naturae diligentia industriaque superaret. - Cicero<br /><br />Let the orator beseech from that Demosthenes a worthy example, in ...

Advanced Latin

Is anyone aware of a decent, advanced Latin text? I want to find a instructional text of the same calibur as Wheelock's Latin with more advanced subject matter. Any suggestions, no matter how inane or impertinent, are welcome.

Do you SPEAK Latin?

This is a Spinoff from Profile Language Pack, http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic . php?t=432<br /><br /><br /> a friend of a friend works in the Vatican's translation department, and it seems that, there, they speak Latin because it's the only language all the translators have in common!<br /><br />That is really cool! I like hearing about these instances where people speak Latin today. Who says Latin is a dead language??<br /><br />So my question to ...
