Latin Audio Poll

Some of the members here and I have been working on a audio suppliment to the Latin texts available here. We hope to have the project ready in the next month or so. We are at the point now where we are beginning to finalize the work.

This poll is meant to get a feel for how members would use such a suppliment.

This poll will run for 30 days.

Multiple verbs

Read, please:

Sententiam bonam vir habet tamen virum magistri monere debet reginae consilia demonstrare.

With four verbs in this sentence and the Roman's delight in putting any word anywhere, how will I know who is doing what?

Thank you.

Soma's Intro Thread

Well, since I never bothered introducing myself, I might as well do so now.

Rex ero

Certain individuals in my immediate surrounding are tam pissing me off that I no longer see any option than to make things clear to them:

"When I am king, you will be first against the wall."*

Of course if I were to state this as such I would be shunned for the rest of my life (miser kasper, desinas ineptire, etc.) and die old, tired and lonely. Hence my desire to say it in latin. ...

Has Catullus lost it?

"Phaselus ille, quem videtis, hospites,
ait fuisse navium celerrimus"

What weird sort of semi-greek-latin kind of literary oddity am I dealing with here? Is this allowed? Should it be allowed?

Hi, just thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm a full time theological student, and in my spare time I'm studying 2nd year college latin. Really encouraged by the way this site is growing and developing, and now that I have some more permanent net access, thought I'd sign up and get involved some.
