Greek: An Intensive Course

I read recently a minutum of information presented in "Greek: An Intensive Course" and I encountered an apparent fallacy, supposing Herbert Weir Smyth's book to be the paragon of the Greek Grammars. The book predicated the character rho beginning to never have a rough breathing and upsilon beginning always to have a rough breathing; however, as is insinuated above, Smyth's grammar is at variance with the former, saying both always to have a rough breathing. ...

When looking at all this Latin again, I was wondering about punctuation. Did the Romans use punctuation at all? I remember seeing the use of interpunctio. Was this the early period? On other occasions, sentences were connected through et or followed each other without any punctuation at all. Which one is the most common and does Latin actually need punctuation?

Translation help

Hey guys,

I'm new to this board and wondered if you could help me out. I spent about a month learning latin about a year ago. I couldn't find enough time to continue though. In that period, I tried to make some correct sentences I needed. I have no idea whether I translated them with the correct declinations (and words for that matter) or not. Could anyone look at this sentence and tell me if ...

katatartaro/w v.tr. to throw down into Tartarus

Succurite O Sodales (S. O. S)

Hey you all,

I think the Frensh can use our help right now. In France they are planning to stop teaching Latin and Greek in high school! We all now that would be a shame and a sign of immorality. We are all believers in the advantages of Latin and Greek, so I think we all have the moral duty to sign the following petition to keep Latin and Greek in the High School system! ...
