A Classical Language Learning Forum

Salvete, omnes!

I happen to be an interested Latin student, and apparently I have too much time on my hands. Either that or I'm following Amy. It's interesting to see how much everything is interconnected; I got here through a search for some poetry, which I started because of another forum I looked at, which I viewed because I wanted to search for a haiku I wrote once.

I was looking for a good site that could help me learn some ancient greek, and this one looks like it will do it fine :) The only thing is that everything is in english! And my mother tongue is spanish, so I'll have to push myself a little bit... but oh well, who said that things in life are easy? ...

sorry, quick question on Ch.29

HEy All,
I just started Ch. 29 and I was a bit confused because the topic is imperfect subjunctives but there seem to be both passive and active forms, and in the back there were no forms that corresponded exactly to their paradigms. Anyone have any light to shed?

So there really might be a 'trickle-down effect"...

PS. who is planing to see the movie "alexander"?

&#!#$ genitive case

I understand the other cases but the genitive gives me a lot of trouble.

What does this read:
Virorum nostrorum magnorum animos curae bella superabant.

Of the men of our of the greats...I wish Wheelock had spent more time explaining each case.

I have trouble firstly because I can't figure out the 'curae bella' relation and secondly that three word genitive phrase. (Why in hell did they create a noun like bellum and an adjective ...
