"Just D'Ooge It" (From Prospecting in Used Booksto

It seemed to me that "Prospecting in Used Bookstores" was getting a bit off topic (:P), so I moved over here...here's the last post from "Prospecting". <br /><br />Quote from: mariek on Today at 03:01:06pm <br /><br />(Although I must admit that green doesn't flatter me )<br /><br /><br /> <br /><br /><br />Me, either. But pink does... <br /><br />Still, you have a good point. And the website green is a good idea. <br ...

Why Latin? (Spinoff from Mythology in Latin)

Did you guys learn latin just out of curiosity or is it related with your studies/jobs??<br /><br />Regards,<br /><br />Fulya <br /><br />I was actually learning Greek, to get a head start for college and to read Homer, but when I looked at all the great Latin resources, I couldn't pass it up! I love learning new languages, as I'm sure you'll realize when you look around the forum. <br /><br />Keesa

Helpful(I hope)Hint

Something I do to help me learn, is copying what I'm working on. For example, my Bible Study is nothing but copying, word for word, the entire Bible. I'm going to try this with Latin (as soon as I've learned a little more), but I'm going to use a slight twist. I'm going to find one of my favorite books, and copy it in into Latin. (If there is any reason why this would be ...

I was wondering how exactly are you supposed to pronounce Latin? I can copy the accents of lots of different nationalities, and I was wondering which accent Latin is more like, if any?

For those who haven't found it already, Perseus is a great site.<br /><br />Here is their table of contents http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cache/perscoll_Greco-Roman.html<br /><br />They have one of the biggest, if not the biggest collection of Greek and Latin texts on the web in the original and in translation. <br /><br />One option is to use the SP Ionic font we use for Greek here on textkit.

BLD Ex140 Pg59 Niobe and her Children concluded

<br />I'm having major problems with translating this passage. I've highlighted the difficult parts in red, and also numbered each sentence to make it easier to refer to.<br /><br /><br />1. Apollo et Diana erant liberi Latonae.<br />Apollo and Diana were children of Latona.<br /><br /><br />2. Iis Thebani sacra crebra parabant.<br />These Thebans prepared frequent sacrifices.<br /> -- or? --<br />Thebans prepared frequent sacrifices to/for them. <br /><br />I wasn't sure whether "Iis" goes ...

Canine (Spinoff from Adjective Agreement" in the Learni

This is a spinoff from the thread "Adjective agreement" in the Learning Latin forum...<br /><br />As far as I can tell, my dog responds to the sounds that I give her, not to the actual commands. So, if I had trained her to respond to "Sit" in Latin, rather than English (what is the Latin for "sit", anyway?) she would recognize the sound, rather than the word...and I don't think that the adjective agreements would ...

Iliad line 28 and 31

(If it is preferable that I have one question per post, please say so, here are two.)<br /><br />1. <br />Line 28 reads mh/ nu/ toi ou) xrai/smh| skh=ptron kai\ ste/mma qeoi=o.<br />I translate this as; "The scepter and wreath of god will most certainly not help you".
