Basics of Latin

Hi, I'm new to this forum and have always wanted to be able to talk to people who know a LOT more latin than I do. I speak Spanish, so Latin shouldn't be so hard for me..well...actually it should :oops: . I've read a few proverbs and have a dicctionary for Latin, but I'm still missing the basics. I was wondering if you would be so kind ...

How Much TV Do You Watch?

This I ask out of curiosity.

I consider tv to be a big time waster. The two hours I just spent watching reality shows could have been better spent on Greek declensions. Is there anybody here who doesn't watch any television?

Again, just out of curiosity.


PS- I spend way too much time in front of the boob tube, an hour or two a day. I hope to cut it down to zero.

Is Greek the most exact language?

Greetings and Salutations:

I have often read and heard that Greek (specifically thinking of Ancient or Koine) is the most exact language ever created. I guess my questions would be as follows:

Is that true?

If it's true, then why is that statement true?

If anyone can kindly reply or at the very least point me to a website or book illustrating this notion that Greek is the most (or one of the most) exact ...

This text was created by the 'postmodernism Generator' http://www.elsewhere.org/cgi-bin/postmodern (thanks for finding that site Democritus).

The primary theme of Bailey's analysis of the postconceptual paradigm of context is a mythopoetical paradox. In a sense, Baudrillard's critique of the neosemanticist paradigm of expression holds that reality is intrinsically responsible for the status quo.

Many dedeconstructivisms concerning Lacanist obscurity may be found. But Batailleist `powerful communication' implies that consensus is a product ...

Line 1.3

I found this line tricky (al least to me).

polla\j d' i)fqi/mous yuxa\j )/Aidi proi/ayen

According to Pharr, i)fqi/mous modifies yuxa\j, but they have different genders, so which word does i)fqi/mous modify?
