Causal clauses help.

Found these quite hard, too many combinations of different constructions and i'm not sure how to connect them all.

1. The brave shepherds were sent to help the young women, because the old poets were silent.
pastores audaces mittebantur qui mulieres parvas adiuvarent, quia poetae veteres taciti erant.

is parvas ok for young? I think the rest is ok.

2. The wise king is to be spared, since he did not harm the happy Romans. ...

Res Publica Conquassata

Is anyone familiar with the Latin reader in the subject? I was hoping to post some grammar questions whenever my professor (who has never taught Latin before and is only familiar with French grammatical terminology :? ) is not clear enough. Thanks!

which of the two nouns in the nominative is the subject

Hi, everybody:

I am wondering whether there are any *formal* criteria for answering the question stated for constructions like:
"Kai phrone^sis men estin, he^ schesis· ktl."?

Is my understanding correct that:

1. *if not for the comma*, the only possible subject here would be "schesis", since it is the only noun with the article;

2. as the phrase stands (i.e. with the comma), the only possible subject is "phrone^sis"?

3. If so, how does it ...

Bug in log in procedure?


This is a bug(?) report about a feature of the forums on textkit.

When I log in, I'm presented with the information already in the boxes and I must merely click the "log in" button to log in. However, there is a little check box there that says to always log me in when I visit. This check box doesn't seem to have any effect whatsoever. Can it be fixed so I can be ...

The Sound of Classical Greek

Hey everyone, I've been learning Classical Greek through the textbook, Athenaze, which for me at least, has been a great learning tour. However, I would like to get my hands on some tapes or CDs of someone who is reading classical Greek. I have the pronounciation guides in the books I own, but I would really like to hear the sounds. Does anyone know of a website, or some tapes I can order, or something ...

I've just experienced an electrostatic discharge.
This winter I was being bombarded by e.s. discharges and I have built a habit of discharging in advance the excessive charges through a coin, which reduces the shock I get in the process. Just a couple of minuites ago the flash was seen when the coin and a nearby metal structure was a bit larger than 5mm(~1/5 inches) away. And I felt a shock at my finger that ...

Iliad line 5, pa^si or dai^ta?

Pharr says dai=ta, but I know that at least some books say pa~si.

Pharr also said that the Iliad segments in his book haven’t been altered, so I presume both words are acceptable.

Is this sort of thing common in Greek verse?
