Salvete de Nova Anglia

Salvete, Χαίρετε,

I teach classical languages and humanities at a small private secondary school in New England. I have long been interested in the ancient world and its tongues, but only in the past two years as a teacher has my proficiency really begun to improve. Teaching truly forces one to learn the material! I have taken a group of students through most of Wheelock and about a third of the English Athenaze. Next year ...

Hello everyone!

I've been studying Greek (13 months) and Latin (7 months) on my own and have been religiously stalking Textkit for answers to newbie questions for about 10 months, and so I thought it was time that I break down and create an account for myself. I'm not sure if I could have survived the treacherous waters of Mastronarde and Orsberg (still trying to survive Roma Aeterna, if we're being honest) if it weren't for the ...

Hi, my name is John

Hi, I'm a semi-retired guy who has started to learn Greek, again. I've tried before but life has always intervened(or at least that's my excuse). I'm interested in cooking, theology, and leaning Greek, and eventually Latin. I'm working through Mounce and supplementing it with Machen's text. I hope eventually to be able to both read and write Koine, and read the Septuagint and NT in the original language. Any help form others here will be ...

Verbs that take a complementary infinitive.

Hi,

Is there a name for verbs that often take an infinitive? I know the infinitive is complementary, but what would the verb be called?

For example: θελω γραφειν. δυναμαι βλεπειν.

Thanks!

Key for Elements of Latin

Hello all,

I'm looking for a copy of the Key for "Elements of Latin". For those who don't know, this is the revision of "Latin for Beginners" that D'ooge wrote in the 1920's. In many ways it is a second edition, though he felt there were enough differences to warrant the new title.

There are old posts on this forum from 2009 and earlier referring to some members having a key. There is even a ...

Bellum Gallicum 5. 44. 4 — Help!!!

Gosh, how embarrassing! Reading Latin for 20 years and stumped by Julius Caesar!

Haec cum dixisset, procedit extra munitiones QUAEQUE PARS HOSTIUM CONFERTISSIMA EST VISA inrumpit.

Obviously the translation is "where the enemy was most dense" he broke in upon."

But why is there not an ACC. construction as object of INRUMPIT? The constructions given in the mini-Lewis and Short are: quoqunque; in castra, in aciem hostium; cum telis ad sese; ...

I have the lesson 3 and 4 PDFs ready to post but would like to post them at ...
