Pergama flere volo

Hecuba laments the fate of Troy. Shet retells the cause of the war and so narrates the kidnapping of Helen by Paris, who is the nominative of the first sentence:

Vadit et accedit, clam tollit, clamque recedit ;
Nauta solo cedit, fit fuga, praedo redit.

Tuta libido maris dat thura libidinis aris,
Civibus ignaris quod parat arma Paris.


Post cursus Helenae currunt ad arma Mycenae,
Mille rates plenae fortibus absque sene.


Does anyone have an ...

New Newb Excited To Explore Latin!

Salvete, anyone who decides to read this!

I took 2 semesters of Classical Latin in college and have proceeded to become the TA of my college's Latin program. Don't let that seem like self-adulation; the truth is that my college doesn't really have a Latin program (only one course of elementary Latin is offered per semester), and my being offered the TA position was more of a step for my college to keep its Latin ...

Hello Everybody!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Stephanie and I'm 25 years old. I am currently enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University and am majoring in creative writing. (Seriously tempted to switch to be a history major!) I would love to eventually publish a book series, but would like to teach at a university level once I finish my masters. (I still have a year left on my bachelors so I have a little ways to go!) ...

Tips for learning principal parts?

So this is actually the 2nd time I am learning Ancient Greek. The first time I half-assed it and then got bogged down from carrying too many books. Now that I've got a writeable tablet, I am set and making good progress. I am using Mastronarde (again) and I figured that learning all the principal parts for each verb saves me a step really, so I am not just learning 3 and trying to shoehorn ...

Epitaph for a pet.

Hi. I've been trying to write a little 'farewell' to a four-legged friend, but I'm a beginner (only about halfway through my 'teach yourself' book, and I'm sure there are errors. If anyone could spare a moment to help me fix the mistakes (or even phrase it a bit more elegantly) I'd be grateful. Here it is:

Hodie mane Iacobus mortuus est.

Vale parve amice, felibus optime omnium!
Socius bonus eras et amicus mihi melior ...

Patristic Greek

Hello,

I'm reading through St. Athanasius's "Contra Gentes" and came across a particular use of the infinitive that I'm having trouble classifying. I was hoping somebody could help.

The sentence is a question.

τις χρεια της μορφης, και μη . . . δια πασης απλως υλης επιφαινεσθαι τον Θεον;

I apologize for the lack of accents; I'm still getting the hang of Greek input on the keyboard.

Athanasius (in a polemic against the worship of ...

Greetings from a new Latin learner

I have come to learning Latin (and if I persevere, later, ancient Greek) in mid-life, as part of a longtime quest to give myself the broad education in the humanities, and specifically in the Western classical languages, that I never had.

Why the humanities? The simple answer is that I have always liked to read, travel, and learn about other times and places. And as my formal education was in maths, sciences, and engineering, I ...

Scanning a verse by Plautus

Hello all,

This is not a simple question, as it scholars don`t stop arguing about the meter in Plautus. Nevertheless, it is known the basic: the verse is a iambic senarius. The last word contains a perfect iamb. But what about the rest?

Here it goes:

Pauci sint faxim qui sciant quod nesciunt.

In other words, the question I entreaty you to answer is: are the sciant and the last syllables of nesciunt the only ...
