I came, I saw, I conquered!

Out of curiosity, how do you translate I came, I saw, I conquered (Veni, vidi, vici.) into Greek?

Vocabulary differences bt Funk and Wagnalls and Wheelock

I notice that Wheelock's vocabulary entries differ from entries in my Naw Cassell's Latin Dictionary (F & W 1968). For example, Wheelock supplies the entry fugiO, fugere, fUgI, fugitUrum, whereas F & W lists the fourth principle part as being 'fugitum'. What are the morphological differences? Is Wheelock drawing on later Latin, and F & W merely on the classical authors it cites below its entries?

Learning Reading Greek

Hello everybody,

I'm looking for a kind of guide for reading greek.

How can I learn to read greek ?

Is there something like a child book for learning reading greek ?

And no advice, I should take the ABC, I mean greek reading, also with the accents.

Thank you

Who was Homer?

I was speaking with someone today, who considers himself as quite a literary critic....we spoke briefly of Homer, I was recalling my fondness for the Odyssey, and he was of the opinion that ther was no such man as Homer. That what we have as Homer today was really a long and drawn out collaboration of many different authors that passed down an oral tradion, until we came to the uniform text that we have ...

Reading Plan

I'm thinking about putting together a reading calendar to read the Entire Greek NT. I would like to do it in either a year or two years. I'm still very much a beginner, but I do have some understanding as I read.

How ambitious is this? I'd like to read it regardless of how much I understand or retain. Even though I'm reading for aquaintence rather than full understanding it seems like a good idea ...
