A Great Description....

I think that the thread on favorite hellenic saying may have me looking for similar things in Latin. Anyway, I'm reading some Horace at the moment - which makes for an interesting change from Cicero! - and came across a great description of the school he didn't go to.... He called it:<br /><br />"... magni<br />quo pueri magnis e centurionibus orti,<br />laevo suspensi loculos tabulamque lacerto,<br />ibant octonos referentes Idibus aeris"<br /><br />"Where big boys ...

Ouch. I've found a sentence (in my grammar book, no less) that I can't seem to translate properly. The sentence, on pg. 29 of D'Ooge's "Latin for Beginners", reads like this: <br /><br />Ferae terrarum pugnant. <br /><br />My translation is, "The earths' beasts fight", which just sounds strange, somehow. Is that right? If not, what am I missing? <br /><br />Thanks. <br /><br />Keesa

Greek to English

Um-I'm not sure if questions belong in this part of the site, but does anyone here know of a good online dictionary for Greek, where you can type in the word and come up with a list of possible definitions in English? I had found one, but it didn't seem to work very well. <br /><br />(Jeff, if you feel that this post belongs in another part of Textkit, please feel free to move it.) ...

Just curious

I am trying to read Greek without translating the words in my head. It is going okay, untill I get to a sentence like line 26 of the Iliad. Even knowing the meaning, I cannot read this line from left to right without analyzing which word belongs to which. The object of the preposition before the preposition, e)gw\ between and adjective and its noun, the object of the sentence right at the beginning. I am ...
