Useful online resources for learning Latin

Postby TonyLoco23 » Wed Jul 21, 2010 6:08 pm

I would like to share some very useful online resources that I have stumbled upon for learning latin:

http://www.allverbs.com/language.php?id=9
This site will conjugate any verb in any romance language, including Latin, but it does not have the definitions. For Latin, you have to enter the verb in it's first person present indicative form rather than the infinitive. (i.e. you must enter "ego" instead of "egare")

http://en.wiktionary.org
This online dictionary allows you to look up the meaning of any word in any language including Latin, for Latin words it even lists the nouns and adjectives in all their declension endings.

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/latin/beginners/tutorial/default.htm
This is a great online beginners introduction to Medieval Latin, best of all, it's free!

I was not sure if this was the best place to post this, if there is a specific place in the forum to share resources, please move it to there.

I don’t want to be picky, bit neither ego or egare are latin verbs :P. Also, it’s worth to know, than in latin the present tense first person indicative active voice is considered the dictionary form, on the contrary to say english or french where the infinitive is. Ego is a pronoun and means ‹I›, and ‹to be› in first person indicative is ‹sum›.
Här kan jag i alla fall skriva på svenska, eller hur?

Your right, I meant egeo. And by using allverbs.com I have now realised that I was wrong about the infinitive too. It is actually "egere" not "egare".
