2 Infin + possum/iubeo/veto etc.

See french ex. "je vous demande d'aller manger" <br />I ask you to go and eat. <br /><br />is this possible: "because I can order you to teach..." <br />"quia vos iubere docere possum"<br /><br />Is this a ridiculous assumption? How two infin.? <br /><br />Somebody mentioned the gerundive but with that "I'm like 'ya whatever' " I do be afraid :-[

A strange word for which, seemingly, there is no account

<br />SI QVA SIGNIFICATIO VIRTVTIS ELVCEAT AD QVAM SE SIMILIS ANIMVS ADPLICET ET ADIVNGAT.<br /><br /><br />If any sign of virtue should shine forth, to which a similar disposition may attach itself.<br /><br /><br />I have never ecountered the word "QVA" (without a macron). Can anyone help?<br /><br />Note: underlined letters signify letters with macrons - that should have been pretty obvious. :)

Word of the Day 8-22

After embarassingly little searching through my dictionary, I stumbled across today's word, which is andabata! This exciting word is one of the several types of gladiators (does anybody know them all?).<br /><br />andabata, andabatae masculine<br /><br />This poor fool was the class of gladiator who had to fight with a helmet. "What's so bad about that?" you might ask. Well, an andabata's helmet had no holes for his eyes ...

Definite article with place name...

How do you know when to use the definite article in regards to a proper noun, specifically a place name? This sentence, Number 6 on Lesson 84 in JWW reads:<br /><br />o9doj fanera a0gei ei0j taj tou Kurou kwmaj.<br /><br />I was confused because by my translation it was:<br />"A visible way leads to the villages of (the) Cyrus."<br /><br />What is the difference between saying "the Cyrus" and just saying "Cyrus"?

to/ bibli/on a)fi=ktai

to/ bibli/on a)fi=ktai<br /><br />I'm so excited. I've just received Hansen & Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course, the Greek equivalent of M&F. It looks great. If it's half as good as M&F it'll be something to treasure.

Allen & Greenough's New Latin Grammar.

Please, someone, tell me that a fair majority of the information from pages 1 to 100 (approximately) is superfluous. It hurts trying to fit all that brick-a-brack into my brain... :-X :'(<br /><br />I am really only referring to the alternative declensional endings. And all the other irregularities to be remembered (There are quite a few!)

Pompeiiana Newpaper Ceases

Very much saddened today when I picked up phone to order Pompeianna Newspapers for my classes. Dr. Barcio said they are "going out of business this month" but did reserve 25 copies per 9 issues from last year's crop of papers. I didnt order last year, so the rest of you who got them must have known about this already.<br /><br />He said they could not get an endowment from anyone to keep going. He ...

Books online

Since this wonderful site hosts so many good scanned books, I believe that their downloading size becomes an issue for some people. However, choosen format, PDF, curently is not very appropriative for such goals. As I see it, PDF is designed as a mainly vector format to store computer-generated material, as opposed to the scanned material.<br /><br />Today, there exist a great new (relatively) digital format designed especially for storing scanned material in digital form ...
