Kuhner's Greek Grammar

I have an 1852 translated copy of Kuhner's Greek Grammar by Edwards and Taylor. Sorry - still looking for a public domain copy in German.

I'm seeking input about just where this book should fall in line with other yet to be posted grammars. We also have Hadley and Allen's Greek Grammar, Haldley's Greek Grammar.

Also, my knowledge of the famous German grammars is not the best.
Can anyone set me straight on what are ...

Which reading material contains enough vocab?

Does anyone know which book contains enough vocab to learn latin to an advance level?

Maybe one of Caesar's books?

Speaking of vocab, the average english speaknig person uses ~50,000 words, how many would there be in latin?


BTW to those who like to be funny, a dictionary is not what I am looking for.

HELP! No luck finding software...

In case someone here can help me...

My new computer no longer comes with the free version of Kodak's Imaging for Windows. This is that tiff viewer program that allows you one to markup multipage tiff files. I use this program to move through the multipage tiff files and clean up scanner junk and book markings.

I see where I can buy it http://www.digitalriver.com/dr/v2/ec_MA ... CACHE_ID=0

Gerundives and participles

I found this definition of the gerundive in my American Heritage Dictionary interesting: A verbal adjective in Latin that in the nominative case expresses fitness or obligation and in other cases functions as a future passive participle.

Um... so does this mean that a future passive participle in the nominative case isn’t a gerundive? :)

Oh yes, I use the imperfect stem to memorize the present active ...

Key Arnold's prose?

Does anyone know if there is a key to Latin Prose Composition, Arnold - Bradley?

Someone asked me to teach Latin prose, but it would be less work if I had a key, otherwise I will have to make it myself and I need my time!

Help with very late Latin


This is an inscription found on the monument of a renown 17th Century fencing Master by the name of Salvator Fabris, professor at the court of the King of Denmark. The passage, although intelligible logically and verbally, gives me trouble from a grammatical standpoint. Any and all help in this regard will be greatly appreciated.

En Salvatorem Fabris sic ora ferentem

Hic Daniae dum Rege Magister adeptus
Conscripsit nixam Regis virtutem Palaestram.

Hinc orbi ...

A vocabulary deficiency and challenge

A phrase has been on my lips of late, and I find this morning that there's no way to say this in either Greek or Latin.

So here's a challenge:

Die, spammer scumbag!

My main interest is how to render "spam" as noun or verb in our two favorite languages, but I'd be happy to see the entire phrase, too. Accuracy is prefered to scatalogical excursions, tempting though those are.

Who has attempted to write Latin or Greek poetry?


I have tried and I find it relatively easy although I'm not a 100% sure it's all correct. I once read the old poets wrote approx. one or two lines a day, and Ovid topped that in his best days with approx. seven or eight. Of course, they didn't have dictionaries (didn't they? hmm) and the internet to help them out but still, I just wrote three lines in half an hour.
