Introduction

Post by QuintusTheCuck » Thu Jul 05, 2018 11:59 pm

Hi

I'm Quintus the Cuck. I'm a 19 years old autodidact Greek living and raised in the UK.

I am learning Ancient Greek, aiming to become expert at Modern Greek, and soon learning Latin, aiming to accustom myself easily with Romance languages.

I look forward to give and receive assistance to translations of both. Having another's view on things helps.

I will let your username stand unless I get a complaint from the regulars on the forum.

Of course, if I find out at some point that it's meant to mock some person who goes by "Quintus" elsewhere on the internet, or anything like that, it will be deleted.

If you'd like to change it at any time, just let me know.

Quintus Cuculus would be much more dignified.

Its from a character from a Latin study-book called "Cambridge Latin Course". The character is kinda pansy, and his illustrations look funny to me, e.g:
