Going Down Under

I know there are Australians on this board...<br /><br />I'm heading to Sidney for a little R&R the middle of November. December was my first choice, but the tickets were outrageous!<br /><br />How warm (or cool) is the water around November 20th? I'll be in Sidney.<br /><br />Also, besides the Opera House, what are the must see attractions in Sidney? Any good classical bookstores? :)<br /><br />thanks,<br ...

I found this article while looking for something else: http://archimedes.fas.harvard.edu/mdh/motion.pdf<br /><br />It's about how Latin and Greek distinguish between place to which, place in which, and place from which. There are examples from different languages (Greek, Latin, English and German), and passages from ancient authors discussing the differences. What the Greeks and Romans thought about Greek and Roman grammar in their own words ...

I'm living quite away from any college or univ. and there's no book-binding shop in the vicinity. So I usually come up binding the printed papers myself.<br /><br />I tried several methods, stapling, stitching(with thin electrical wires), punch and ring, using adhesives(pale-wellow stinking cenent, or less stinking epoxy, etc), repkover-like covers, etc. I started this ever since I got an old paperback RSV bible of which the cover was ragged -- I removed the old ...

Homeschooling (from Third Declension)

Continued from Third Declension, Learning Latin Forum...<br /><br />Yes, I live in Alabama, America. Homeschooling is becoming more common now, but when I started, it was still outside of what normal, acceptable people did. Not even my grandparents thought we'd make it, but we did...I just took my standardized graduation test a couple of weeks ago (a year late, unfortunately, because it's expensive, and I had to save up for it), and I should know ...

To whom, which have Herbert Weir Smyth's Greek Grammar...

How long did it take for you to master the many rules and exceptions outlined in the first 48 pages or so?<br /><br />I personally find the abundance of information overwhelming - particularly as I am reading Gildersleeve's Latin Grammar, and Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar, contemporaneously.<br /><br />Can anyone tell me that it is not entirely necessary to remember ALL of the information on those pages?
