Deep Questions

I've noticed quite a few "deep" questions on this board, and they seem to generate the most responses, to speak generally. For example, does God exist? are there absolutes? is knowledge certain?

But on the other hand, I notice that some of you in your replies realize that these are questions cannot be answered, and so you are very short and angry in your replies to them.

Thus I ask my own deep question about ...

Learning Latin

I am teaching myself Latin from Wheelock. My question is, has anyone taken the SAT II on Latin, or even modern Hebrew or Spanish? And also is Wheelock the best book for self-instruction? I have heard certain parts require a tutor.

Igitur vs Quare

I translated this sentence:

He will, therefore, thank the queen and the whole people.

As:

Quare, reginae et toti populo gratias aget.

Should I have used 'igitur' in place of 'quare'?
Also, since 'populus' is plura should it read 'totis populis'?

Thank you.

Descriptions of the Greek Individual Verbal Systems

Hi,

I just purchased on ebay Henri van de Laar's Description of the Greek Individual Verbal Systems; publication year 2000; brand new hardcover. The price was reasonable for $39 (there are only two copies in stock on amazon and it retails for $81; none at abebooks). It's a linguistic text. According to the description, "the author attemtps to assemble the first description of the possible inflexions found for each verb that Greek inherited from PI-European ...

Funny, is this translation right?

I found this in someone's sig on nanowrimo.org forums. I'm no way ready to translate this but is it correct? I think it's funny.


Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam.
(I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head.)

Reviewing Latin

I was wondering what would be the best way of reviewing Latin? I completed an intensive summer course (using Moreland & Fleischer, The Oxford Latin Reader, and Pharr's Aeneid) and would like to refresh my memory before taking an advanced level course next semester.

Would it be advisable to work through a reference guide such as Oxford's A Latin Grammar?

Thank you.
