what are the kids listening to?

It's the start of a new school year and I'm wondering what's making its rounds on campus.

I'm in serious need of some new tunes. I try to stay on top of music but lately I have been listening to the same stuff over and over and over.

Lately I have been listening to a lot of:

Interpol (um, you're missing out if you haven't heard their tunes)
Death Cab for Cutie
British Sea Power ...

Arete

Does anyone have a personal Greek verse about arete, perferably in poetry? I'm thinking of something along the lines of Iliad or Odyssey. I know of plenty of Socratic verses, but this is something that a poet would quote. Thanks

Double negatives in Latin

The other day I came upon the phrase, "Is non modo hoc non perfecit." (It was followed by an 'ut' clause.) Try as I might, I simply couldn't get a meaning to fit.

That got me thinking about double negatives. I know in English double negatives are awkward and boorish and gramatically incorrect, but are they allowed in Latin? (Or maybe I'm just missing something completely....^_^;;)

This is a weird translation, but...

How do you translate "genie"? Like the dude in Aladin, the celestial thingy in the lamp, you know. I am writing a buddhist requiem for someone who passed away in latin, this was her nickname, so any help would greatly be appreciated.

Verb question and pronounciation question

I've started Wheelocks, and still working on the first chapter.

I have a couple of questions.

I try to speak the words as I'm studying them. I'm having trouble with

"conservavi" (mark over the i)

Second, I want to use words in sentences of my own. Can you use a verb like this?

Peccare cogitant.

They plan to sin.

Thanks and I'm sure this is the first of many questions!

Question regarding viewing Hebrew here at TextKit

I just sent a couple private messages back and forth here with a member who wrote to me in Hebrew and I could see it just fine here, but when I used my multi-lingual e-mail program to compose a note in Hebrew back and cut and pasted it into TextKit it wasn't viewable as Hebrew. Any tips on how to resolve that? I'm surprised the note TO me was readible as Hebrew but not my ...

Ex 57

hello everyone, i just wanted to ask about ex 57. what is the correct translation of the verb a)/yw is it 'I lead' or 'I am leading'? 'I lead' seems to suggest it is a continuous action whereas 'I am leading' sounds more like the action is taking place at that very moment. The answer sheet seems to alternate between the two translations, is either translation correct? :? ...
