Schola at 999

The number of members on Schola has now reached the magic 999.
Who will be the thousandth member to sign up?
Since coming online in February 2008, Schola has grown rapidly, with a very international membership. Schola is the main hub to join, if you are looking for people to write to in Latin, or just want to hang out in a cool Latin place online.

Latin in LOTRO (Lord of the Rings Online)

Over the past couple months, I've managed to convince several of my Connecticut latin-teaching colleagues to play "The Lord of the Rings Online" (LOTRO) with me, partly as an adjunct to the Living Epic and Gaming Homer courses I started teaching in January (cf. my blog, Living Epic and the Video Games and Human Values Initiative; UConn also did a fun little… Continue

Latin spellcheck with Word 2007


Is anyone using this thing with Word 2007? I am (on Windows XP, if it makes a difference) and I can't seem to get the Latin language setting to stick during typing; it always reverts back to the language of my default input locale. At this point I'm not even sure whether this is Word playing up or whether the spellchecker wasn't designed to allow for as-you-type checking.

Anyone have any experiences to share?

Tar Heel Reader

Here is the current list of books that have been made in the past week or so:

Everyone is encouraged to have a go at writing at least ONE book. The idea is to copy the format of children's beginning literacy books in general. They can be very simple and repetitive, following a simple formula - kids love this stuff.

We don't have many books like this for Latin, and we need them desperately.

I used Laura Gibb's De Leone very successfully on the interactive whiteboard at… Continue

Latinum - one year of Stats

Latinum has now been online for over two years.

King in the Sky

This is a short poem I wrote recently about Icarus.

The first line is a translation of a fragment of Sappho, but the rest is by me:

I've written very little poetry, so I welcome feedback, and any other title suggestions.

Thanks, Eva

King in the Sky

I did not know that I could touch the sky

I never dreamed that I could fly

You gave me wings so I could soar

But my endless desire, it wanted more

I ignored all of your breathless… Continue
