Breathing mark on -eu-

As a rule the breathing mark on a diphthong is above the second vowel.<br />Why is it over the first when the word is a compound word starting with e)u/.<br />I see that eu itself is listed both ways - e)u/ - eu)=.

Cool Picture of OLD Latin!

A while back, William Annis introduced me to the Oxyrhynchus Papyri project, and I was digging around on the site yesterday. It linked off to a parent site, which contained yet more Oxyrhynchus papyri. In that part of the site was a page called "A Millenium of Documents", (http://www.csad.ox.ac.uk/POxy/VExhibiti ... ame_hi.htm), and that in turn, three lines from the top, has a picture of a Latin letter (Syneros to ...

Per Aroua Ad Astra

<br />I caught the beginning of an episode of "Buck Rogers", an old SciFi program, where you see a spaceship called Searcher. The name of the ship is on the outside, and directly beneath it, I noticed the words "per aroua ad astra" and thought it looked very much like Latin. Well I tried working it out:<br /><br />er = through<br />ad = to<br />astra = stars (ACC PL of astrum)<br /><br />I couldn't figure ...

hello to all

Um, I've never really done an online chat-forum thingy before, so I hope people will bear with me!<br />I'm a full-time political science major (I'm not becoming a lawyer!) and work part-time for a non-profit. I've studied Plato in translation for some years and have wanted to learn Greek. I was very pleased and excited to discover that this site existed! I go to a small liberal arts school in northern Idaho, so neither Greek ...

homeric formulas

hi guys,<br /><br />does anyone know where i could get a simple list of homeric formulas (grouped by length and case, eg masculine caesura to end: nominative; masculine caesura to end: genitive; &c &c).<br /><br />I saw a few random tables throughout Milman Parry's papers a few months ago in the Uni of Sydney library, but that book is never in anymore, and I don't have a library card there... Books in my uni's library ...

<br />I'm trying to get a grasp on these irregular adjectives. Are my translations to Latin correct?<br /><br /><br />#2 Some towns are great and others are small.<br /> Alia oppida magna, alia parva sunt.<br /> Alia oppida magna sunt, alia parva.<br />(oppida magna=NOM PL)<br /><br />I wasn't sure in which position sunt should be.
