ALLEN & GREENOUGH'S GRAMMAR

 REMARKS MADE ON SEPTEMBER 24, 2006

I checked your webpages today and was pleased to note some exciting changes in some pages:

DAVID - great work on the table of long and short syllables! That is certainly a great help not only to your classmates but also to students of Latin all over the world :) You might want to indicate there that those are simply GENERAL RULES so that people are not led to think that they are true for every case.

MIGS - good work in also putting the rules for long and short syllables in your webpage. Letters are too small, however. Enlarge them so people can read them more easily.

NICOLO - I thoroughly enjoyed the joke you quoted from the Economist. Hey, fellas! Go to Nicolo's page to have a good laugh yourself. The Economist has several of these jokes that need you to really know Latin for your to enjoy them. Ah, the benefits of knowing Latin!

JAMES - I like the new picture your posted in your webpage. I might have walked that road myself in one of those years I was in Rome :) I see that you're facelifting you page. Make sure it reaches the next deadline which will be announced soon.

RAFFY - I like the new look of your webpage. It's brilliant - and very Roman :) You don't want to put the -us in your first name, though. It's Hebrew and thus cannot be Latinized that way.

As for the rest, I'm looking forward to new updates in your website. I made some in the MAIN PAGE myself - check it out! Those who have not even begun their life of Catullus have a lot of catching up to do! See the rubrics now for you to see how you can do well in this performance task.


ASSIGNMENT FOR MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 11, 2006

REMEMBER, REMEMBER, THE 11TH OF SEPTEMBER!

1. On September 11, Monday, your page is supposed to be up and about. Make sure that you already have on that page, your own version of the life of Catullus.

2. In that life, please make sure you include the following: From the discussion in class last Firday and from your own readings explain the effect of events of the late Roman Republic on Catullus.

3. We shall also have a short vocabulary quiz on the Latin words used in Catullus 2

4. Your MAGISTER shall be viewing your pages on Monday evening to check on the punctuality of each one as regards the development of his own page. This is a form of rest for me. :)
