Thanks for the suggestions. I'll consider each of those textbooks. I read a review of German Quickly that stated that it used proverbs to instill memorization of vocabulary, a concept that really aided my study of Latin vocabulary, so I'm leaning towards that course currently. Where have you seen t...

An Introduction from Portugal.

ex Portucale salutes! (I only now start this thread, because I only now saw this custom of writing introduction threads! Thankfully, you have apparently a "Better Late Than Never Rule", which fits this greatly. :)) My name is Miguel, and I hail from the far corner of the Empire formerly known as Lus...

I see the whole infinitive clause as a subject complement, because sum as a copulative verb requires a subject complement., but I am not very familiar with English syntactical terms, so I may be saying the same thing the rest of you did. That, or missing the question. :oops: In almost all of Greece ...

It is most likely both naive and ignorant of me to ask this, but couldn't the Latin-Romance distinction be made from the point where the previously-Latin-speaking populations across the Empire ceased to have mutually intelligible dialects? As it was previously said, the legions brought themselves a ...

Re: Questions on pronunciation, metric feet.

Bob Manske, thank you very much! That does bring things into place, I should learn more before posting scansions like this. modus.irrealis, such priceless help! First, thank you for the link posted. I would say that mora applies to the vowel part of a syllable. So a short vowel has one mora, a long ...

Decidi não me atrever com o CDROM, e aventurar-me-ei simplesmente com o livro, o Roma Aeterna. Assim que o tiver e testar direi mais.

De novo, obrigadíssimo pelas tuas palavras.

Questions on pronunciation, metric feet.

Hello, friends! I beg your attention for some doubts that have been born out of my recent incursions in Ancient Greek pronunciation. Having been won over by the rhetoric of the many essays and posts urging the use of musical pitches in reading (something diametrically opposite to what I am being tau...

Thank you, kembreg. I only fear that the course you linked me is aimed at begginer-level learning... While I don't claim I am advanced by any means, I have mastered the basics already, thus it wouldn't be of much use to me. Devo-te muitos agradecimentos, Tertius Robertus. Será que me poderias conce...

Getting a stronger grasp on the language

Hello all. I come to you humbly as a Portuguese student, and one who recently started the first year of a degree in Classic Studies. I studied Latin before, obviously, but I often fear the background I was given was not enough. I have learnt most if not all of the general aspects of the language, bu...
