I have two questions on Latin pronunciation:

I. Does Latin use the trilled R in every Latin word with R in it or just in the alphabet?

II. Does the short o sound like the o in pot or the o in pole?

Amor vincit omnia...

I'm currently reading the Canterbury Tales, and in the prologue this Latin phrase is mentioned, "Amor vincit omnia". With my rudimentary Latin skills I translated this "Love ___ all," and inferred "Love conquers all." I'm just wondering if I am right. :)

Epictetus Discourses 1:1

Has anybody here tried to read Epictetus? Is it just me or is this greek extremely difficult? (I thought he would be a piece of cake because I'm very familiar with him in translation and I read that his greek usage was similar to biblical greek).

Anyway,heres my actual question.

Intensive Biblical Greek Summer Course

I would like to learn Biblical Greek, but I am not close to an institution that teaches it. I would like to go someplace for a summer to do an intensive course. I would also like to receive undergraduate credit for it. Does anyone know of such a program?

'Brevissimae bracae' is Latin for hotpants

September 1, 2004

The Vatican has come up with some new Latin descriptions that have not received a universal welcome. Elizabeth Day reports from London.

As the iuvenis voluptarius might say: "Put on your brevissimae bracae femineae and let's go to the taberna nocturna and drink some vinum rubrum Burdigalense."

The Vatican has helpfully produced a new lexicon of modern words in Latin, providing translations for such non-classical terms as playboy, hotpants, nightclub and merlot. ...

Unt 3 Questions.

Regarding Clauses of Purpose, M&F rattles on about Primary and Secondary Tenses and how the verbs in the independent and dependent clauses always go toghether with their counterparts. In contrast, my Wheelock text makes no distinction toward that whatsoever, and makes the subject MUCH simpler. :P Does this tense-dividing matter much?
For example, M&F diffrentiates how the Perfect tense is used in both categories, i.e. perfect in ...
