Re: Aedificium potentum verbarum symbolorumque creare:

Adriano: I entered the information at the end of your post into a search engine, and was led to a pdf abstract for your undertaking, concerning which I can say little else but 'wow!' You are recreating the conditions of natural initial language acquisition within a synthetic environment of your own ...

Re: Which translation works better?

Salve Quis ut Deus. You're correct in your beliefs concerning the supine. I just took a short nap and woke up thinking about the subject, and at that point realized what my mistake was: I was focusing on the transitivity of the stop, which really doesn't matter for our purposes, and NOT on that of t...

Re: Which translation works better?

Salve! I would be comfortable using the supine for matters of destroying, but certainly not for standing for or against something. Now, I see destruction as a definite move toward an end, as the end is the removal of some noun x; true, destruction is not an end to action, as things cannot be destroy...

Re: Musically Instrumented Textkittens

I play the saxophone, though I'm way out of practice, and dabble with the piano; it has been a long time desire of mine to learn how to operate a sitar, however. Ravi Shankar, along with JS Bach (huzzah!) and Lizst, is an idol of mine.

Aedificium potentum verbarum symbolorumque creare:

When developing an understanding of a new language, it helps for a speaker to associate objects(as symbols) with new vocabulary in a given lexicon. In my own endeavors, I have utilized methods as traditional as objective-based vocabulary studying, taking x amount of words from Cassell's dictionary o...

Re: Which translation works better?

I personally, rather than using 'Ad delenda impedimenta mea,' would render 'to destroy' with the supine. The final product would look something like 'Impedimenta mea deletum verus firmusque sto.'

Re: Study Group

Awesome³! I'm going to work to get most of my school material squared away before this project is begun in order that I can dedicate sufficient attention to the translation, and by that time the semester will almost have ended, allowing more time rebus otii. Here's to the deliberate approach of the ...

Re: Study Group

Could I also be involved in this project? I absolutely <3 Ovid; right now I'm reading Ars Amatoria and would appreciate the opportunity to work with a group in translating the Metamorphoses.

An introduction

Salvete omnes! I was idling around the vast interwebs, doing something of trivial importance (I say this because I cannot quite remember what it was, not necessarily because my actions were insignificant), when the mood struck me to search for an online community of Latin speakers. I had began study...
