Lingua Latina Programme?

Postby Scribo » Tue Jun 09, 2009 8:37 am

Salvete pulchri fili mei! quid agitis? valesne? bene!

Does anyone recall a programme called Lingua Latina, that essentially drilled you on latin noun endings? whenever I chase up links to it I find that the website is dated and the programme is no longer available to download. Does anyone have any idea where I can find this or something similar? or even other Latin goodies? mayhap we can get something smiliar up on Latium?

It was also called WinLatin, but it is so old I doubt you'll be able to find a computer that runs it. Here's a link to a copy of it:

http://www.esnips.com/doc/716f4f4e-c707 ... 0/winlatin

It's in a .rar archive, so you will need something like Free RAR Extract Frog to open it, but again I seriously doubt it will work on any computer less than 10 years old.

It was pretty basic, anyway. If all you want are really boring drills, you can try out something I wrote a long time ago:

The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library

Cheers Ed, you are a saint amongst young Classics students, that's for sure, how did it not occur to me to check your site? Admittedly not being in the US means oftentimes my attempts to download something go awry, so I guess I had given up hope or something.

Thank you. I'm not a fan of boring drills, but I have to get my Latin and Greek upto a damn good level before next Sept so anyway to smash these paradigms into my memory will be good.

EDIT: Ahh what order to you place your noun cases in good sir?
