Typing those Latin long vowels

Am I beating a dead horse?<br /><br />I'm still trying to figure out how to type those Latin vowels with the horizontal line over them. I don't see corresponding ALT+xxxx codes for these vowels in Windows Character Map.<br /><br />I found ALT codes on this website, but can't seem to get them to work. Any ideas?<br /><br />http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/international/bylanguage/latin.html<br /><br /><br />Capital A ALT+0256<br />Captial E ALT+0274<br />Capital I ALT+0298<br />Capital O ALT+0332<br />Capital U ALT+0362<br ...

Oblique Optative (was: New Member)

I thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread on this subject, instead of continuing the other topic in a new direction.<br /><br />If I remember correctly, three questions need to be answered.<br /><br />First, if there are textkit grammars that discuss this topic.

Some info on texts

Hi, <br />First off, I want to thank you all for a great web site, and online books.<br />I've pretty much finished the JWW intro to Greek book and am now <br />slogging through Xenophons Anabasis. Doing this as a self taught is <br />great but, aside from a few posts on this site and a few elsewhere, I've<br />found it hard to decide wich authors to pursue and which of their books <br />to ...

Gods and Zealots

I've noticed that as I post to forum, I keep getting advanced to a higher state of being. Recently apotheosized, I am currently a "Textkit God" and I assume that my next stage of advancement is going to be "Textkit Zealot." A curious inversion, there.<br /><br />I feel like I'm living the Hypostasis of the Archons or something.<br /><br />Jeff, can you change the stanges to something silly and Neo-Platonic or Gnostic? ...

Paradigm shift

When I was at school, declensions all went <br />Nominative<br />Vocative<br />Accusative<br />Genitive<br />Dative<br />Ablative (for Latin)<br /><br />but now they've been changed to:<br />Nominative<br />Genitive<br />Dative<br />Accusative<br />(Ablative)<br />Vocative<br /><br />Why? It's very confusing.

New Member and new owner of Harrius Potter...

Hi,<br /><br />My name is Lee and I have just finished my second year at Exeter University, UK and am reading Classical Studies. I have been studying Latin for eleven years now and attempted Ancient Greek at GCSE level. Would quite like to pick it up again when I do my Masters Degree. <br /><br />Just got a copy of Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis. As with most works in translation, it does lose some ...
