I'm a professional--a scholar of ancient Greek philosophy--making my obligatory intro post. I'm an ABD doctoral candidate working on Aristotle, but I'm also really tight with late Plato. My philosophical Greek is pretty fluent. I'm also friendly with Homer and Herodotus, but I shudder at the thought of Euripides and Aristophanes. My Greek feels rather "organic." I started out demotiki, then went on to the JACT "intuitive" method in my formal, collegiate years. I'd defend that method readily. I'm a "nom.--acc.--gen.--dat." person when it comes to Greek.
I also have a taste for the old school. I like to describe my Latin as "apparatus criticus" level, but I'm here to make it REAL. I wanna try Latin the old-school way. The "nom.--gen.--dat.--ac.--ab." way. Cicero and Lucretius are my targets. I'm great with vocab., syntax, and tense. But I think North/Hillard are straight-up Sadists for starting out composition with sequence of tenses. I'm pretty sure that's a demonstrable waste of effort.
Anyway, I hope this is good enough to get my pressing question about North/Hillard comp. posted. For what it's worth, I'll exchange cool stuff like Timaeus knowledge for insight into sequence of tenses in Latin comp.
One last thing. I'm not anti-macron. But I defy you to explain to me the (supposed) phonetic difference between the 2nd and 3rd syllables in laudāre and exemplar, respectively.
Let that be an introduction. Look for my North/Hillard Comp. question...if all goes well....
