Tutorial/summary Request

I am curious to know exactly how Latin poetry (and Greek, though I can't read it yet) actually are organized and function. I have a lot of comments (especially by Elucubrator) about the length patterns for words and such, and the different arrangements (i.e. hendecasyllabic, dactylic), but I am still incredibly vague on what it actually is. So, could someone please either direct me to a site or article (or write a tutorial) so I ...

Textkit Tutorial - Notes on the Aorist Morphology

This thread was created to discuss the Textkit Tutorial<br />Notes on the Aorist Morphology by William Annis<br /><br />Introduction:<br />Traditional grammars of classical Greek enumerate two forms of the aorist. For the beginner this terminology is extremely misleading: the second aorist contains two distinct conjugations. This article covers the formation of all types of aorist, with special attention on the athematic second aorist conjugation which few verbs take, but several of them happen to be ...

Any suggestions?

Let me begin by saying that I believe my understanding Latin grammar to be adequate for the activity to which I shall hereafter give appellation.<br /><br />I want to begin reading ancient works written by the likes of Cicero, Virgil, Livy, Catullus, Martial, and whomsoever of whom you may think; but each time I open such a book I am overwhelmed by a vast array of unfamiliar words. So my question is: Does any of ...

Very nice online Classical (New Testament) Greek course

A very nice set of (free) downloadable PDF format lessons are available from http://www.inthebeginning.org/ntgreek/learn.htm. It's specifically designed to teach you how to read the Greek New Testament Bible I think, but very useful if you just want to learn Classical Greek.<br />The first few lessons (1-5) concentrate on the pronunciation and accentation of Greek words. By later lessons (6-10), it concentrates on the grammar and declension of nouns etc. ...

Why is it not back in print?!

In all seriousness (albeit tinged with incredulity and of course anger) I do not be understanding why Latin For Beginners is not for sale, for example, on amazon.com. <br /><br />Basically Latin For Beginners beats all competition. Yes Wheelock and M&F (I've looked at these). If a beginner with no Latin knowledge whatsoever wishes that she might learn Latin were to ask me (I don't be biased really, if you y think as I was/be ...

Hey everyone, <br /><br />I was reading a neo-latin poem of N. Mangeot. The poem is entitled 'Vesper'. It sounds really great, but it's a neo-latin one. So some words are used in a different way as in classical Latin. I can perfectly translate it, but I am not really sure of everything. Can someone find an online - translation of this poet by this German neo-latin poet? I searched, but I don't find it. ...
