My Motto

I just wanted to share "My Motto" with you...I read it somewhere, and thought it was funny, so I stuck it to the wall by the computer. It sums up my study of the Greek alphabet pretty well, even if it is written in "Latin". <br /><br />Veni, vedi, velcro. <br />I came, I saw, I stuck to it. <br /><br /> ;D<br /><br />Keesa

BLD Ex136 Pg57 Niobe and her Children

<br />I think I have correctly translated the last sentence of the passage from Ex 136. But there is something I don't understand about it. The exercise points out that reginae and liberis are Dative. Is it because of the "to the queen" and "to the children" being indirect objects? Also, causa appears to be Nominative. Shouldn't it be Accusative?<br /><br /> Sed ea superbia erat reginae causa magnae tristiae et liberis causa durae poenae.<br ...

Which Beginners Book from Textkit?

<br />I just noticed something about the site. <br /><br />If you click on Learn Latin (http://www.textkit.com/latin_grammar.php), it takes you to the main page enumerating downloadable books, categorized by "grammars" or "readers". <br /><br />Here's what I noticed... the Latin Grammars (http://www.textkit.com/latin-grammar.php) link on that page. It takes you to another page which helps you choose a book. There are two books listed as beginner level, and one as ...

Keeping on topic

<br />Jeff, our moderator, wrote<br /><br />While there are many excellent educational threads in the forums that achieve this goal, there have been many posts on both the Greek and Latin boards that have steered off-topic of the original question or discussion.<br /><br />Please remember to keep your posts and discussions relevant to the original subject in the thread.<br /><br />Magistra says<br /><br />Many times we have gone on to other topics.

Classical vs. Koine

I'm learning Greek. When I go to college (2004) I'll be taking Greek (Koine), and I would like to get a jump start on it...at the same time, I really want to learn Classical Greek. I'll be learning both of them eventually, but which one would the pros out there suggest I learn first? <br /><br />Keesa

your favourite Hellenic maxims

<br /> Sometimes I come up with short Greek phrases, masterpieces of rhythm and condensed meaning, that even though they were first pronounced millenia ago, still can cut like a knife and whisper to me the way out to many every-day situations. <br /><br /> To me, they are, along with "grandpa Homer", the reason for which I wanted to study Greek. <br /><br /> So, give me your top 3 of Greek quotations that ...

Key to D'Ooge available?

Hello,<br />I am working through The Beginner's Guide to Latin, and was wondering if a complete set of answers to the exercises is available. <br /><br />Judging by the topics here, I presume that a complete key hasn't been made. Is this correct?

Pain and Awareness

"Go to sleep for a while. That way you won't feel it." <br /><br />That was always Mom's reply when, as a child, I tried to use a cut finger or a scraped knee to stay up a little longer. "But, MOm, I can't go to bed! It hurts!" <br /><br />Oddly enough, she was always right. ;D And when I was asleep wasn't the only time I could forget a paper cut or a ...
