Reversal of word order in alterorum/alterorum

Learning Latin

Reversal of word order in alterorum/alterorum

Salvete,

I am a bit confused by the way Adler uses the partitive relation denoted by the English "of" in Latin, specifically why he switches the order of the words in the answer.

  • Suntne amici tui filio tot togae quot indusia?
  • Sunt ...

God of this, god of that

Civilization and Culture of the Greeks and Romans



God of this, god of that

Venus is the roman goddess of Love, Zeus the greek god of thunder, Thor the norse god of lightning.

This is how these lovely creatures are introduced in school, in mythology dictionaries, and even in greek and latin textbooks.

I have been wondering for ...

Euphony in Romans

Koine Greek And Mounce's Basics of Biblical Greek



Euphony in Romans

For a long time I have noticed that the introduction to Paul's letter to the Romans does not hit my ear like normal prose. Instead it is very sonorous. Now looking at it carefully, I notice the stretch of long syllables at the beginning, and throughout many ...

No one need feel obliged to answer this, but I'm curious where the intermediate readers on here are getting their (reading) material, particularly those who have finished grammars and are studying on their own, whether in a directed or desultory fashion. I've been reading .pdfs from Google ...

Phaeacian dance

Homeric Greek and Pharr's Homeric Greek - A Book For Beginners



Phaeacian dance

I'm wondering about the Phaeacian duo dance with a ball at 8.372 ff., especially ποτὶ χθονὶ πουλυβοτείρῃ at 378. All in all, Garvie's commentary gives a good overview, but I have a hard time figuring out a few points.

ὅτι/Translation Question in John 1

Hello,

I am a little unsure how to parse the different uses of ὅτι in John 1:15-18. I think the first use is causal and the others that follow indicate that the quotation is being continued, but I am not positive. I checked Smyth, which ...
