Re: Is this called reading Caesar?

Hi, Randy. I don't know. Waldo Sweet greatly influenced the University of Michigan Latin program, so I would imagine someone who went there would be able to speak to his influence better. He also wrote the Artes Latinae textbooks, as mentioned above.

Re: In usum Delphini

Very cool. It's interesting how many of the files are hosted at archive or google books.

The link to John Piazza's webpage is dead.

Also, interesting to see the link to Waldo Sweet's book on Aenid, A Structural Approach.

Waldo Sweet, LASA and Michigan Latin

I posted an earlier message in the "Is this reading Caesar" thread , but we started going OT and Waldo Sweet deserves his own thread. Denbek was kind enough to post a link where one reader at a time can check out Waldo Sweet's Latin: A Structural Approach: https://archive.org/details/latinstructural...

Re: Is this called reading Caesar?

Hi, Danbek.

That looks interesting.

I read what I think is an early version (graduate thesis?) of Latin a Structural Approach (LASA).

I think only one person at a time can check that book out. I just tried.

Re: Does Anyone Know,...?

I've been cross referencing the vocabulary in D'Ooge Latin for Beginners with the Dickinson list and have been surprised by how much of D'Ooge's vocabulary is not on the list. (I'll share the list when I'm done.) I haven't had a chance to look for this yet, but does anyone know of a larger vocabular...

Re: Is this called reading Caesar?

Pin130, I've struggled with paradigms and Latin in general too. Have you tried the Dowling method? http://www.wcdrutgers.net/Latin.htm I found it to be excellent advice. I keep the exercises in the back of my work binder and then write out the paradigms if I'm stuck in a meeting or conference call. ...

D'Ooge and Roehm, Junior Latin Lessons

I'm curious if anyone has ever seen Junior Latin Lessons, by D'Ooge and Dorothy M. Roehm (Boston, 1926)? Is it any good? I believe there are two books, Book One and Book Two. I couldn't find a pdf online at Archivedotorg or anywhere else. I see a few used hard copies at Amazon but they are each $30....

Re: Latin word order

Pin130,

I've heard that writing is a more effective at memory retention than typing on a computer. And of course, reciting (even if softly) while writing or typing helps.

Re: D'Ooge audio files with ecclesiastical pronunciation?

Thanks, Bedwere. I would like to do that. I've actually started recording Adler's Art of Everyday Latin using an ecclesiastical pronunciation. Maybe after that.

If anyone would like to help with this project by, for example proof-listening to files, please PM me. Thanks.

Re: Podcast difficulty

Thanks for posting these. I've only heard some Nuntii Latini, so I don't have much of an opinion on the others. But I will check them out. The only thought I would offer is that if speed of elocution in a particular .mp3 is a problem, you can always slow the tempo of the file down using Audacity, wh...

Re: Looking for: complete Livy in Latin (public domain)

I'm not sure if you're still looking for a copy, but Archive dot org has many copies of Livy. They're all (?) scanned with OCR, so I'm not sure how many errors there are in the text files. Might be worth poking around there if you still need one.

Prof. Harrington of Tufts posted his "Syntax of Ancient Latin Grammar" on Github. It's great. You can find it by going to Github and searching for "Harrington." Once I'm off noob probation, I will post a link.

Re: The Vestibulum: Revised and Expanded

Ursinus,

Thank you for the Vestibulum text. However, the OneDrive link says that the files "might not exist or are no longer available."

Do you know why that is?

Would you be able to repost them?

Thank you again for creating them. I very much look forward to hearing them.
