More wired than a Roman Internet café
Since the summer is a productive time for me at my various Latin blogs, I'll just be posting here once a week with a summary of the contents of those other blogs, hoping that it might be useful! Here is a list of what I published this week:
Latin Via Fables (latinviafables.blogspot.com): I've added seven new Latin fable types - The Tree and the Reed, Two Men and a Bear, The Old Man and Death, The Axe and the Trees, The Rooster and the Pearl, The Wind and the Sun, and The Weasel Transformed into a Woman. For each post, there is a Latin version of the fable, along with an illustration and notes on the fable.
Audio Pocasts (bestlatin.libsyn.com): I published three new audio podcasts this week: the Latin fable of the rooster and the pearl, the Greek fable of the donkey and the lion, plus a Latin proverb with commentary - ne capra contra leonem.
AudioLatinProverbs.com: I've covered two proverbs this week: Ne capra contra leonem, and Echinus partum differt. I also published the Study Guide for Group 173 at the Latin Via Proverbs blog. You will also find the audio for 20 more Latin verses at AudioLatin.com.
Vulgate Verses (vulgateverses.blogspot.com): This week I published the Study Guide for Group 32, and I also commented on the verse Deus cordis scrutator est verus.
How-To Technology Tips (howtotechtips.blogspot.com): This week's topics include: Typing Classical Greek Online, Creating a Randomized Widget with Text, Creating a Randomized Widget with Images, Getting started with Blogger.com, Creating an RSS Reader widget from SpringWidgets.com, and Podcast Hosting at Liberated Synidication.
Grammatice (grammatice.blogspot.com): This is my new blog about grammar and linguistics related to Latin studies, and I posted this week about my own Slavic background and how important that has been to my own study of Latin.
Learning Latin Links (learninglatinlinks.blogspot.com): This is my new blog about useful online resources for the study of Latin. This week I posted about the Polyglot Bible at the Sacred Texts website.
Verbosum (verbosum.blogspot.com): This is my new blog about Latin and English word formation and vocabulary. This week I blogged about the Latin suffix -osus, one of the most productive suffixes in Latin, and also very commonly used in English as well (-ous and -ose).
