Hailing all Testkit users! :)

I just wanted to introduce myself, I am a 19 year old student from Canada and am trying to re-introduce myself to the world of Latin. Thank godness I work in the biggest bookstore chain in Canada (Chapters/Indigo/Coles etc.)! Everyone here seems very friendly and willing to share their knowledge which is great since I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. I am currently working through Wheelocks 6e and of course, the omnipotent BLD!

Third declension rules for Keesa

First off, don't be intimidated; it's easy.<br />Second, the original copy of this miniature guide of mine is on the third page of the 'Casa' thread.<br /><br />The regular rules for the third declension are:<br />(Note: to recognize a third declension noun, you must look at the genitive singular, not the nominative, because sometimes the nominative sg. of a noun resembles that of a noun of another declension. i.e., scelus (neuter) - sin, wrongdoing, evil)<br ...

participle help please

Sorry if this is a very simple issue, i'm quite new to latin. In de bello gallico in the clause "His rebus adducti et auctoritate" i dont understand the meaning of "adducti". I think its a participle and should be translated as induced but rebus is fem abl plural and adducti is (i think) masc nom plural.Shouldn't the participle agree with the noun ? Could someone please clarify,<br /> Thanks,Steven

How similar is Ancient Greek grammar to Classical Latin Gram

Before I delve into Greek, I think it a mark of sagacity to inquire as to whether Ancient Greek grammar is similar to that of Classical Latin. <br /><br />A propósito, I saw a thread about the periphrastic! Mine old nemesis! (just joking)<br /><br /> ;)

Pensees

Does anyone know where I can find a good copy (preferably a free ebook online :P) of Pensees, by Blaise Pascal, in French or Latin? I've read him through in English, but I would like to read him again in French, and in Latin, once I'm advanced enough, if he was ever translated into Latin. <br /><br />Keesa

Doce me pro gratia

Salve Amici! Discipulus linguae latinae sum, et bene illam linguam discere volo. Sed, non scio optimum modum discentis.

Thank you!!!<br />Et memora: "Etiam si vita plena malorum est, spem semper habemus!"<br /><br />Spe,<br />Paul
