Definite article with place name...

How do you know when to use the definite article in regards to a proper noun, specifically a place name? This sentence, Number 6 on Lesson 84 in JWW reads:<br /><br />o9doj fanera a0gei ei0j taj tou Kurou kwmaj.<br /><br />I was confused because by my translation it was:<br />"A visible way leads to the villages of (the) Cyrus."<br /><br />What is the difference between saying "the Cyrus" and just saying "Cyrus"?

to/ bibli/on a)fi=ktai

to/ bibli/on a)fi=ktai<br /><br />I'm so excited. I've just received Hansen & Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course, the Greek equivalent of M&F. It looks great. If it's half as good as M&F it'll be something to treasure.

Allen & Greenough's New Latin Grammar.

Please, someone, tell me that a fair majority of the information from pages 1 to 100 (approximately) is superfluous. It hurts trying to fit all that brick-a-brack into my brain... :-X :'(<br /><br />I am really only referring to the alternative declensional endings. And all the other irregularities to be remembered (There are quite a few!)

Pompeiiana Newpaper Ceases

Very much saddened today when I picked up phone to order Pompeianna Newspapers for my classes. Dr. Barcio said they are "going out of business this month" but did reserve 25 copies per 9 issues from last year's crop of papers. I didnt order last year, so the rest of you who got them must have known about this already.<br /><br />He said they could not get an endowment from anyone to keep going. He ...

Books online

Since this wonderful site hosts so many good scanned books, I believe that their downloading size becomes an issue for some people. However, choosen format, PDF, curently is not very appropriative for such goals. As I see it, PDF is designed as a mainly vector format to store computer-generated material, as opposed to the scanned material.<br /><br />Today, there exist a great new (relatively) digital format designed especially for storing scanned material in digital form ...

Inscription "ANDG" at Jesuit school

A friend of mine recently saw above a door at a Jesuit school, the inscription \"ANDG\" and asked me what it meant. I guessed \"ad nostrum deo gloria\" but really had no idea. Do you know what this inscription stands for?<br />

Supporting Textkit

There have been so many great textbook recommendations made on this forum that it has become clear to me that visitors are in need of helpful book suggestions in addition to free downloads and a very unique and growing learning community.<br /><br />Textkit is always in need of non-intrusive ways of generating revenue (we currently have none) to help off-set our staggering operating expenses.<br /><br />So it occurred to me that perhaps an affiliate relationship ...

sync forms.

From the Perseus entry for consuesco:<br /><br />cons&#365;esco , su&#275;vi, su&#275;tum, 3 (in the tempp. perff. the sync. forms prevail: consuesti, consuestis, consuerunt; consueram, etc.; consuero, etc.; consuerim, etc.; consuessem, etc.; consuesse. Thus also consu&#275;mus = consuevimus, Prop. 1, 7, 5 ), v. a. and n. <br /><br />Could someone refresh my memory as to what sync. forms might be? I vaguely recall something about the -esc- in verbs ending in -esco sometimes dropping out, ...

The Third Declension

Everyone can agree that the third declension is evil, right? (I like to joke with my teacher and blame it on her.) Well just how evil is it?

I'm not following this

I'm reading Nepos's life of Lysander at the moment and I'm having problems with the first paragraph.<br /><br />My first problem is in this part:<br /><br />Lysander Lacedaemonius magnam reliquit sui famam, magis felicitate quam virtute partam. Atheniensis enim in Peloponnesios sexto et vicesimo anno bellum gerentes confecisse apparet. id qua ratione consecutus sit, non latet.<br /><br />What is the subject of apparet? Is it impersonal? In which case I make the sentence: It appears ...
