D'Ooge Ex 39

I am working through Part II of Exercise # 39 on Page 19. I went through it once, then made minor changes on about half of them when I looked it over. I think I have gotten them correct, except I'm not sure about #4 and #8 because these two sentences are a little bit more complex. Is my Latin translation correct ?<br /><br />4.<br />The farmer's daughter loves the waters of the forest.<br />Filia ...

Hello.<br />Just started using your JWW First Greek Book a few months ago.<br />I really have to thank you all for providing this book online. Absolutely<br />an excellent way to get prepared for the Anabasis. I was using another<br />set of books, JACT, before, but now am focusing on this one exclusively.<br />The grammatical parts seem so much more workable.<br /><br />Keep up the good work.<br /><br />cheers<br />richc<br />

501 Latin Verbs

Any thoughts on the book "501 Latin Verbs" ? It supposedly conjugates the verbs for you so all you have to do is look 'em up.<br /><br />I'd really be interested in a Latin version of the French Bescherelle verb book; I found bescherelle far superior to the "501 French Verbs" book.<br />

How to Ask for Translation Help

Just a few suggestions for people asking translation questions.<br /><br />
    <br />
  • Please don't send us a list of homework sentences. Instead, let us know what you're having problems with.<br />
  • If possible let us know where the Greek is coming from. So, if it's Xenophon, let us know that, and include Book/Chapter/Line. If it's from one of the Textkit books, give us a page or section number.<br />

Hi all,<br /><br />I've been reading this forum for some time, and have decided to join in. My name's Ingrid, I'm Dutch, and I'm currently making my umptieth attempt at learning Latin.<br /><br />I've head three years of Latin at high school level, where I read some Caesar and Ovid, i.e. spending more time reading the dictionary than the actual text. Somehow learning vocab didn't seem important at the age of 14:). The book focused ...

Latin Dictionaries

<br />OOPS... I just realized that I meant to post this in the Latin forum. Sorry about that. Is it possible to move this over there ?<br /><br /><br />Hi !

Logging into the forum

The oddest thing just happened. Has anyone else ever experienced this ? Maybe it's just the forum weeding out people like me who ask too many silly questions !! :-\<br /><br />I tried logging into the forum, it would show I was logged in, but when I viewed a message thread it changed my status back to Guest... so when I tried to post to the forum, it would ask me to login. When I ...

A shame that the lingua Scythia cannot be rendered here. Cyrillic is my favorite alphabet after the Latin and the Greek.<br /><br />I have started to study Latin recently, out of desperation with my professors, out of disagreement with the attitudes in Russian scholarship. Latin and also Greek shall be my weapons against this illness. You see, no one wants to admit Russia into the medley of peoples who drew themselves from classical civilization. They ...

Word Order

I've just started learning about the Declension of Nouns and I understand that this is what clues you in to whether the word is Nominative, Genitive, or Accusative. So I understand now that word order isn't such a big deal as in English.<br /><br />The example in the book says all of the following mean "The lady loves her daughter" :<br /><br />1. Domina Filiam amat<br />2. Filiam domina amat<br />3. Amat filiam domina<br />4. ...
