Final -M with Nasal Pronunciation

Learning Latin

Final -M with Nasal Pronunciation

David Bentley Hart translation of NT

Koine and Biblical Greek



David Bentley Hart translation of NT

Interesting point about the disparity between the quality of the greek in the various books of the NT and the pitfalls of translations by committees. He strives to not smooth out the roughness, but to let it be seen. I'm looking forward to getting ...

English being my native language, pitch is entirely ...

What case is 'me' here? Hor. carm. 1.5

me tabula sacer
votiva paries indicat uvida

I would have translated this like an indirect statement: 'the sacred wall reveals on the votive tablet that I hung my dripping clothes up for the god who is the ...

Learning Greek



Why is τί interrogative? Aristophanes' Wasps.

First, lines 270-2:

ᾁδοντας αὐτὸν ἐκκαλεῖν, ἤν τί πως ἀκούσας
τοὐμοῦ μέλους ὑφ᾽ ἡδονῆς ἑρπύσῃ θύραζε.
