Advanced Latin

Is anyone aware of a decent, advanced Latin text? I want to find a instructional text of the same calibur as Wheelock's Latin with more advanced subject matter. Any suggestions, no matter how inane or impertinent, are welcome.

The special vocabulary section of Latin for Beginners (BLD) says: <br /><br />quia or quod, because <br /><br />Acrobat page 31, #47, II.2., reads <br /><br />"The girls give a wreath to Julia, because Julia loves wreaths." <br /><br />My question is, should "because" here be translated "quia" or "quod", and what's the rule for determining which one to use? Do you just use whichever one you happen to prefer? Surely not...but I can't seem ...

Do you SPEAK Latin?

This is a Spinoff from Profile Language Pack, http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic . php?t=432<br /><br /><br /> a friend of a friend works in the Vatican's translation department, and it seems that, there, they speak Latin because it's the only language all the translators have in common!<br /><br />That is really cool! I like hearing about these instances where people speak Latin today. Who says Latin is a dead language??<br /><br />So my question to ...

It has finally arrived, after much anticipation and heartwrenching suspense! The word of the day has arrived! <br /><br />8/11- Today's Word of the Day is elucubrare, in honor of our long-absent patron, Elucubrator!

Limited Latin (from "About To Latine")

Quote from: bingley on August 10, 2003, 10:42:37 PM <br />We can say things in English we can't easily say in Latin, so English is limited? <br /><br />Could you explain how you reach this conclusion? Surely the limitation (if there is one) would be on Latin's side. <br /> <br /><br /><br />If you think about it - and here we're getting more into "Academy" subject matter.... every language has limitations in some way ...

Bono Vox?

Someone was watching mtv the other day, and I overheard a segment about a musician named "Bono Vox." It was said to mean, "good voice" in Latin, but that can't be right. Could Bono Vox, with Bono in the dative or ablative, actually mean something in Latin? Perhaps "voice produced by a good man?"
