ANKI-Deck "Adler Exercises"

Postby Carolus Raeticus » Sat May 21, 2016 6:14 pm

Salvete,

I created a deck for the flashcard programme ANKI containing the Q&A-sets (English/Latin) of the Exercises 1-171 from Exercises contained in Adler's Practical Grammar of the Latin Language (based on my transcription version v1.1, 24 December 2015). It contains only Exercises 1-171 because the last Exercise (172) features letters which are not suitable for use with flashcards.

The ANKI-deck can be downloaded from the Download-section of my homepage. The ZIP-file (about 624 kb) contains the deck itself, the input file used to generate it, and some basic information (Readme.txt).

Each flashcard contains a complete Q&A-set both in English (front) and Latin (back). Each flashcard has 2 tags:

  • "Lx": where "x" is the number of the Lesson it belongs to, e.g. "L20"
  • "EXx": where "x" is the number of the Exercise it belongs to, e.g. "EX30"
Please report any errors (especially formatting). I converted them en gros and did not check all cards.

Have fun,

Carolus Raeticus

Carolus, that is really a fine thing you are doing, making this kind of material available. This much require a lot of keyboarding!

This is fantastic. Thank you so much. I'm working through Adler now, so this is really going to be a big help.

I will report any errors.

Actually, creating the ANKI-deck did not require a lot work because I had the input file from the original transcription project (available on my homepage!) to work with: a few regular expressions to get rid of footnotes, a small Javascript to do the conversion, and voilà. This is exactly the reason why I also provided the input file: so that it can be used to adapt it for whatever purpose one sees fit.

Vale,

Greetings.

Thank you, Carolus, for your work with this deck.

You mention the so-called input file which can be used to create anki-decks like this one. I'd like to create a deck for Meissner's Phrase Book, but I'm still at a loss over what exactly I should do to achieve the goal. If you could just give me some instruction, I would highly appreciate it.

All the best,

I've found some videos on Youtube on how to create decks using "input files" and "scripts" and other offensively incomprehensible things, and I think it will be much easier to do all the work by hand; so to the mentioned work I'm now going to give up the rest of the summer.

Greetings to you, too.

Check out the Download-section of my homepage. There is an ANKI-version of the Latin Phrase Book, which I created last year and even uploaded to my homepage, but then forgot to add a link on my homepage (silly me). It should be be working. Please give a quick report what you think.

Vale,

Dear Carolus Raeticus,

I can't thank you enough for your hard work on the deck! It's really wonderful to just start studying instead of plugging away for weeks on copy-pasting the whole thing into Anki (the only line of work I seem to be capable of, as far as anki-decking is concerned.)

Just a minor point: did you completely dispense with the footnotes or they are somehow retrievable? Anyways, I find your work remarkable and I'm tickled pink to set out on a learning journey.

Here's something you may enjoy to have a look at, but feel free to discard if unwanted: the fruit of my stubborn labour—as clumsy as it is—I've only managed one third of the book so far, and I'm obviously not going to continue.

All best as ever,
intolerandus

The footnotes are not part of the ANKI-deck, and deliberately so. First of all, it did not seem to make a lot of sense to add these for an ANKI-deck, also it would have meant more work to do the conversion. Still, they are part of the plain text input file Meissner-20151019.txt, also available in the Download-section of my homepage. The footnotes are enclosed in curly brackets ({}).

I had a look at the APKG-file you reference: well done! Still, the version on my homepage contains all the phrases (minus the footnotes).

Vale,
