A Classical Language Learning Forum

Hello, Salvete, Hola

This is one hell of a username to type out, so first of all, address me by my first name, Keith.

Second of all, this forum seems awesome. When you have people congregating to discuss the Classics of their own accord, you're bound to get a lively, eclectic mix of personalities. Or so I hope. ;)

I've been studying Latin for four years and am currently in ...

Need some short phrases translated please

A friend is starting some video game group, and asked me to translate some of his name ideas into latin. Unfortunately I remember almost nothing from my couple years of latin. I'd really appreciate if someone could help me out putting these few things into latin:

Knights of the Abyss
Bringers of Darkness
Destroyers of Light
Under the Veil of Night

Happy sounding stuff huh? :P Thanks ...

help with purpose/result clauses

1. So many soldiers attacked the citadel that they easily captured it.
tot milites arcem oppugnaverunt ut eam facile captaverint.

is eam ok to refer to the citadel, apparently u don't use se with result clauses. is captaverint the right tense?

2. Cicero wanted to speak with the intention of criticising Antony.
Cicero dicere eo consilio voluit ut Antonium iudicaret.

have i used eo consilio in the right sense and place, or best just to ...

I've long been itching to buy a new computer. My laptop is 5 years old and my old pc is 8 years old. Both are dying, but I put off buying a new one because I am poor like most of the rest of you.

So finally today I got a new computer!

And it is so fast and pretty. lol

I also got a 17" LCD monitor, which I wasn't expecting to be able ...

All the Greek Verbs

I'm reading enough Greek now to get stuck on the verbs. The reviews of Marinone's reference book of All the Greek Verbs are either very positive or very negative. From the description, though, the book sounds as if it's what I need. Does anybody use this book?

Gay Alexander?

The Greeks are angry about Hollywood's Alexander.

Oliver Stone has a propensity for the silver screen shockers. This is as good a forum as any to let the truth about Alexander fly.

http://cnn.netscape.cnn.com/ns/news/sto ... TR&coview=

English to Latin translation assistance requested

I have a question about a translation from Wheelock's workbook, page 65, #2. The english sentence is:

The state will never thank the Greek tyrant.

My translation is: Civitas Graecum tyrannum numquam gratias aget.

My problem is with the phrase "the Greek tyrant". Should this not take the accusative, thus the ..um ending. The answer key says that this should be "Graeco tyranno" which is either the dative or ablative.

Does anyone see something obvious ...

Boy of 14 gets 85 lashes and dies for breaking ramadan fast


I don't care what Raya says islam is messed up. Such a religion was something to follow in chaotic times, now it is just outdated and goes too far.

It makes me thankful (but not enough) that I can eat without being killed for it. Also freedom I appreciate yes no doubt so many kids have gone off the rails as a result of lack of discipline here and it makes for a terrible ...
