>>21019683First for bald man.
>>21019683>All claims about language learning methods must be backed up with the language in question.Output in a language is a different skill than understanding input. This is for classical languages. Aside from some kissless retards, most people here just want to read, not order a pizza in Akkadian. A better solution would be to just stop arguing about pedagogy and just share constructive advice rather than lecturing about what the "best" method or book is.
>>21019702>primus pro calvo
>>21019734It's a rule to prevent latin spergs to shit up the thread. I any case I think it's practically impossible to be read more or less fluently a language and not being able to write down a few simple sentences.
>>21019751In fact it should specify that only applies to latin.
>>21019751>to be readfuck me I always forget to delete something after rephrasing
>>21019751It doesn't prevent anyone from doing anything. It's a pretentious rule that is given without any authority. Lots of linguists can read languages without being able to argue about pedagogy in that language. Nobody wants to larp with you guys. Go to fucking Discord or something.
>>21019838I simply report every English post about lispi because those are always troll posts, simple as.I also don't even consider the opinion of someone who isn't capable of provide a simple explanation in the language he is supposedly an expert. It's just a simple way to filter bullshitters. This may not be sensible for languages with small corpora but it works wonderfully for Latin.
>>21019925>the language he is supposedly an expertThis is the problem with you guys. Nobody in the history of CLG has ever said, "hello I'm an expert".This is literally like if some criticizes a script and your response is "Oh yeah I'd like to see you make a better movie!"Its childish and dumb. People can disagree and it doesn't mean they are passing themselves off as super mega geniuses who know everything. They might just think that you are wrong.
>>21019683I'm sure this has been asked before, but I'm trying to decide whether I should learn to read Homer in Ancient Greek first, or read in English first then learn to read it in Greek?
>>21019941I don't care. I always check whatever I read here and answers in latin tend to be correct, but you can't never trust english answers. I've read so much bullshit here is not even funny anymore.Can't write latin, opinion discarded.

>>21020027I want to try translating Deathnote sometime, but my latin isn't good enough yet.It's a relatively short manga but I imagine it's got some difficult sentences in it, but it's my favorite so maybe one day
>>21020027something that could be translated using exclusively classical vocabulary
>>21020288translating manga into english has the problem of japanese language quirks too so it may be difficult for any manga
>>21019985>can't never trust>is not even funnynigger you can't even write English
>>21019974English first, then Greek. Better for comprehension.Start studying Greek now.
>>21020473and in fact you will never see me giving lessons on englishsame with latin, you can immediately see if someone is full of bullshit by how he writes
>>21019974As someone who is reading the illiad in Greek in class I have to say read English first. Better to get the gist then later come back to it. A good book for getting up to your greek is Pharr's homeric greek (apparently 2nd edition is best), which I use mainly for vocab but it covers the grammar.

What are some good fiction books in Latin? I saw the Hobbit, any others?
>>21022539What's this obsession with "ille"? "Hobbitus" or "Hobbit" is just fine.
>>21022589emphasis on The as Biblo was the most important Hobbit
What's this theme I see on this thread of people thinking that Latin never emphasizes anything?
>>21022609because there's maybe only one or two people who actually know latin itt (I'm not one of them btw)
>>21022539Harry Potter you fucking faggot
>>21022602No. Its just doglatin.
>>21022602Yeah I get it, but natively latin speakers didn't ever use "ille" as "the", it eventually developed in romance languages, but in latin per se there is no article, they should've translated it like in other languages that don't use articles. Ille in context of "emphasis" (it's not actually emphatic but still a demonstrative) is more like "that one", and fits better in a discourse than a book's title. Morphologically weakening the meaning of "ille" is more akin to medieval latin, but medieval latin is regarded as polluted after the renaissance. Thus it looks like a forced translation from English instead of an interpretation. Also you don't have to force every word to the second declension like a 19th c. zoologist, it doesn't sound natural.As a side note, "ille hobbitus" sounds better because you can elide one syllable.>and Winnie ille Puthat's a meme, it passes (Winnie the Pooh is non sense in the first place)
>>21020027A few doujins have been at least, check sadpanda's language:latin$ tag. Though apparently not all in very good Latin.
>>21023024>that's a meme, it passes (Winnie the Pooh is non sense in the first place)I agree on all points. One further objection is that they should have retained the spelling of Pooh.
>>21022398This kind of thing reminds me a bit of some of Minerva Scientia's stuff.
>>21023142Why? Did the Romance retain the spelling of foreign words?
>>21023149*Romans, why can't I English
>>21023149No that never happened anywhere except English in medieval times
>>21023188Nowhere? I'm pretty sure I've seen Europeans in the modern day keeping the original spelling of English words.
>>21023194I mean historically.
>>21023205What about something like Thai spelling Sanskrit words etymologically? Or is that not the kind of thing you're talking about?
>>21019683given machine learning success do you believe that in 20 years we'll be getting A.I translation into ancient greek or latin of any book we so desire ? Imagine a hemingway translation into ancient greek or pynchon in latin

>>21023402you will be able to even choose in which style you want the translation done>translate x into y as if it was written by z
>>21023402AI translation is getting better all the time, but it won't reach human level until we have basically strong AI and at that point we will have much bigger things to worry about.
How many languages do you guys know?
>>21024235Two fluently, two conversationally, smatterings of several.
>>21024235unironically zero>speak mother language badly with foreign accent>speak second language with extremely closed dialectal accent>but can't speak proper dialect>english pronunciation is absolute shitMy only hope is to actually learn Latin.
>>21024325>speak mother language badly with foreign accentsame. it's horrible
>>21024325>>21024382How does that happen exactly? Raised by immigrants who just spoke the host language poorly instead of their native language?
>>21024235Am spic born in America; parents only speak spanish. Parents didn't converse with me much because father worked and mother had 9 other children to take care of. My spanish is absolutely awful, but I understand the gist of it (sometimes). I have an accent in english because it's not my native language. I sound like a bumbling fool and trip over words all of the time. All in all, I can speak 0 languages fluently, so I am basically autistic. I try to find solace in the fact that I can at least think precisely, but even that is a lie sometimes. Hopefully, when I learn latin and try to speak to people who inevitably won't understand me I'll pass it off and tell them it's all greek, cue >picrel
>>21024440You have to go back.
>>21024446Nope. I got a good gig here. Vibing and thriving; Learning and curving; dunking with nothing. It's good; this life.
>>21024440Idiot, you write English fine and you have the base to learn Spanish properly and read delicious Spanish poetry but instead you're self loathing. You literally were gifted bilingualism which you could achieve with a little effort. Learn Latin of course, but work on your Spanish too, and don't let it go to waste!!

>>21024533greentext talk has a uniquely retarded way of talking that gives it character. That character would probably be lost by translating it.It's like "be an hero" as a way of saying "kill yourself" just wouldn't be any sense in latin.Or "all your base are belong to us" because the humour of it is that it's in english, and bad english at that
Are there any words that come into Latin from Greek, not words with a common origin, that reflect a digamma? In my Greek class today, we talked about a hidden digamma in The Wasps, which would mean they were pronouncing them in Classical times.
>quu was actually pronounced and written quo in classical times>i was not only jj between vowels, but could also be jji like in reicio (rejjicio)Last one makes sense once you know the etymology (re + iacio) but come on, it almost feel like learning English orthography again

>>21029357Scribito hic, aliquis aliquando latine respondebit.
>>21029720Thanks, only at chapter 7 in LLSPI Familia Romana. I can already tell my verbal ability is *nowhere* near my reading ability. (decoding declensions feels easy, encoding feels very hard). I feel like I could probably blast through the whole thing in a few months, reading wise, but it really bugs me that I can't think of what to write or say on the fly.Am I worrying about the wrong thing? Is it possible (or even preferable) to circle back after completing the 35 chapters of reading and listening comprehension, and do remedial conversational Latin?
>>21030419You need to side it with a grammar book, there are many nuances in latin grammar, the case system is something you just get used to intuitively. LLPSI is great for reading, unlike most people here, I appreaciate the increasing difficulty so you can practice reading comprehension based on your knowledge level. But the hardest thing in latin is syntax and how it interacts with grammar, it's totally alien to modern languages so you will never be able to speak and write in it without doubting if what you are saying is correct.To speak a language without stumbling too much you need at least a B1 knowledge, that is being able to read and fully comprehend "easy" books like the Vulgate, De Bello Gallico, Ab Urbe Condita etc.. .My suggestion is to get a copy of Latin: An Intesive Course from libgen and finish both.
>>21030455But doesn't it explicitly discuss grammar? It just starts with examples.
>>21030419>I can already tell my verbal ability is *nowhere* near my reading abilityThis is completely normal btw. Reading is a completely different skill from writing and speaking (there is a reason why Latin prose is generally considered a harder thing). You have to train the stuff on its own, you can have a million grammar and input books and still be incapable of speaking Latin properly because you haven't practiced. You are generally told, as in the case of Wheelocks and LLPSI to read out loud and to understand what you are saying.
Which modern Germanic language would be most helpful in learning Old English, grammar wise?
>>21031889Icelandic maybe? I don't know a lot about germanic languages, but Icelandic is the most conservative and you'd be able to read norse texts, so I guess it's the best compromise.
>>21032460Thank you :) I was already looking at Icelandic and thought so, as well. Grammatically it's very similar, but the vocabulary seems quite different, so I was wondering what other anons would say
The passing of a hero who died in warHe drew out an arrow from his side; colourless the hero fell to ground; his soul journeyed to his fathers unmild, to the bare island of the highest storms, chasing spirit boars of mist on the wings of mighty winds through bare rock.
>>21031889Middle English. Start with Early Modern English. Read the King James Bible, then John Milton, then Shakespeare, then Chaucer, then get a comparative grammar of Old and Middle English and use it with a dictionary to read Beowulf.
>>21030770>But doesn't it explicitly discuss grammar?If you actually fell for this meme that explicitly discussing grammar somehow prevents you from learning a language, then just give up and learn Spanish on Duolingo.
>>21030419>circle back after completing the 35 chaptersDon't bother rereading this book more than once. The story is not very good and it's incredibly repetitive. Just blast through it and do as many grammar textbooks to review as possible while working through the Vulgate or Nepos. You can read stuff like Attic Nights or Fabulae Faciles if you are still struggling.
>>21030828LLPSI has sections at the end of each chapter discussing grammar explicitly.>>21033003Not at all, I think it can be helpful provided it's treated as an aid to language acquisition and not a substitute for it. I'm saying that LLPSI does explicitly discuss grammar.
>>21033003reading comprehension: 0
>>21033043>LLPSI has sections at the end of each chapter discussing grammar explicitly.You're better off with the companion book that explains the grammar of each chapter in English. Downloadable on libgen
>>21033043>I'm saying that LLPSI does explicitly discuss grammar.Aren't you are on chapter 7? I'm sure you can guess the early stuff, but my friend stop being naive.As someone who is way ahead of you, let me go ahead and tell you it does not explain grammar well at all. It might say "x = subjunctivus", but it doesn't explain what the fuck a "subjunctivus" verb is. Just putting a name and example next to something is not an explanation - it's an example. It has grammar examples, not explanations. For example: I can point to John and tell you he is a Mormon, but that doesn't really tell you anything about Mormonism other than what you can assume based on what you know about John's behavior. You don't want to be assuming stuff when you are learning a highly inflected language.
>>21033267What does it include that FR itself doesn't?>>21033272I got as far as chapter twenty-something, I don't remember exactly. I've sort of fallen off Latin for a little while.
>>21033337>What does it include that FR itself doesn't?English. Explanations. Definitions. Discussion of syntax.>>21033337>I got as far as chapter twenty-something, I don't remember exactly. I've sort of fallen off Latin for a little while.Why is it always people who haven't even finished their books that want to argue with everyone who did about which method is superior. Just download a grammar PDF and stop being so hardheaded. It's not cheating, it's how people have learned languages going back 5000 years all the way back to the Sumerians. We literally have cunieform tablets of grammar exercises for Akkadians learning Sumerian, Sanskrit grammars, and Latin/Greek comparative grammars. This stuff was for 10 year old boys, surely you are not this much of a waterhead that you can't do it too.
>>21033357I don't know, I agree explicit grammar instruction as a supplement to language acquisition rather than a substitute for it can be beneficial, I guess I just tend to err on the side of comprehensible input because it's so commonly treated as a substitute rather than a supplement.
>>21033377>I don't know, I agree explicit grammar instruction as a supplement to language acquisition rather than a substitute for it can be beneficial, I guess I just tend to err on the side of comprehensible input because it's so commonly treated as a substitute rather than a supplement.My friend, the point that I'm making is that you haven't even finished your textbook, but because you watched a YouTube video from someone trying to get Patreon supporters you are convinced that the way people learned languages for centuries is all of the sudden inferior. Despite the fact that the very people promoting this idea nowadays have a weaker understanding Latin that at any point in the last 2 thousand years that they are calling inferior or 'wrong'.
>>21033460stephen krashen has a patreon? this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a61Dc_EFuI4 has a "weaker understanding of latin" than those traditionally trained classicists that barely read latin and don't speak it at all? you have some wacky opinions my dude
>>21033510You posted a video of an Italian speaking Latin. Post a video a monolingual English speaker who learned using this method without any prior attempt to study grammar and without any prior study of a Romanace language. You won't find one. Not not even Bald Man. Ranieri studied Italian for 7 years and lived in Naples prior to even touching Latin. You might as well post a video of an Icelandic person speaking Old Norse in order to prove that a Chinese person doesn't need to study Norse grammar directly since he didn't either.
>>21033556>Post a video a monolingual English speakerwhy? i'm not a monolingual english speaker, i don't care about your problems. also you moved the goalpost to another continent. if your claim is just that comprehensible input doesn't work for latin unless you've learned languages before then it's pretty much a non-issue, because who picks latin as their first language ever? do six months of italian before starting latin if you think you need it, it's very easy.

>>21033012Anon here on ch 7 of LLSPI...thanks. Your insight is appreciated. Didn't appreciate the difficulty of learning an inflected language: fun as fuck, but keep getting memory collisions on just the 1st and 2nd declension because it all sounds the same. ESPECIALLY so for 3rd person pronouns; which one is which? Reading is easy, but encoding thoughts into Latin... so difficult, brain still structured around prepositions and word order, not inflections. I feel like you have to actually use the language, else you're stuck using lookup tables in your head, to decode how everything "declines".Solution: babling to oneself in Latin occasionally throughout the day..."Aemilia eum vocat. Aemilia eī ōsculum dat. Is Aemiliae ōsculum dat. Aemilia eius māter est. Aemilia ab eō (?) discēdit." And so on.Side effect: autism
>>21033460Grammar-translation isn't 'how people learned for centuries', it's primarily a product of the past couple centuries. Explicit grammar instruction has been present for centuries, yes, but that's not the same thing as grammar-translation. And the overwhelming scientific evidence is not just some YouTuber's opinion.
>>21034040>Grammar-translationI never once used the word translation in a single one of my posts.> Explicit grammar instruction has been present for centuriesYeah I know, that's what I said. What the fuck are you on about with this translation nonsense?

>>21034216>isn't he a "traditionally trained classicist", whatever it means?You tell me, it's your term not mine. You already know I said he was Italian. A lot of people are giving advice to Amerimutts that they can infer Latin without grammar.

Isn't that the purpose of those groups, to get use to the latin language to better access to the literature? doesn't he have an academia where only latin is used? what am I missing here?

>>21034296>>21034307Why? Up until recently pretty much everyone pronounced Latin in some traditional pronunciation or another.
how do you say "how did you find the book (good/bad)" in latin?
>>21034364just listen to it lmaoit's been proven that latin sounded closer to german, specially in the vowels, than to shitalianwhich makes sense when we consider that fagitalians are mostly semitic people who learned latin as LSL

I can't speak for the Greekchads but it's obvious to me now the Latin-learning component of this general is made up of nothing but midwits and retarded tradcath zoomers who were filtered by LLPSI or whatever else but still want to LARP as knowledgeable, so they cope by endlessly discussing latin-adjacent topics instead of just fucking off. I'd genuinely be shocked if more than two or three people ITT had above an A1 grasp of Latin.
>>21034524Most of these people are in the chapter 5-15 range and will never progress past that, but will argue with everyone here like experts for the next 5-15 years.
>>21034524>midwitsbeing a midwit is good, you don't need to be gifted to learn a language, only a dimwit would use the word midwit as a derogatory term in this context
>>21034571>you don't need to be gifted to learn a languageYou do when it's a dead language like Latin.
>>21034581Latin will always be inaccessible to midwits because:1. Learning it requires passion and dedication, two qualities midwits do not possess.2. There isn't a big or active enough community of (key word) competent Latin speakers for it to be viable to learn via the natural method.3. It actually is a very difficult language to master.

>>21034687btw pretty sure at least two of those were due to the auto-correct (yes I'm a miserable phoneposter) anyway, I'm literally one of the dumbest people I know, have fried my brain with drugs, and more or less I've learnt some latin in the last months (while working full time as a waiter).That means necessarily that a midwit can master Latin without too much problems, he just need to study
>>21034708>That means necessarily that a midwit can master LatinAnd yet everything you've posted ITT has abundantly demonstrated that you haven't mastered even the basic Latin in LLPSI.

>>21034981>write it in LatinWhen is this tired meme going to die? Funny how the people who constantly demand that other people write in Latin never actually defend any of their own arguments or dismantle any opposing arguments. >I have no argument, now write an internet chat in a 2000 year old dead language to prove that you can read it!Nobody wants to debate you in Latin or order pizza in Latin or do sports commentary in Latin or chat with coworkers in the breakroom in Latin or talk about our favorite anime waifus in Latin, we are trying to read classical literature - which you clearly have no interest in. Reading and writing are not the same skill, nor are listening and speaking. People are not arguing about what's the best way to win internet arguments in Latin, they are arguing about what's the best way to be able to read Cicero. And as many of the above posts show, even the people trying to flex by writing in Latin are making a fucking ass-ton of mistakes and are embarrassing themselves.
>>21035260there's literally a retard itt who claims to have an iq of 90 who seems to be able to write somehow in latin, it can't be that hard
>>21035283>it can't be that hard>It can't be that hard to do the thing that you actually practice daily and intend to get out of your studies in the first place?Yeah, proving my honor in a 4chan purity test by writing in Latin is not one of my priorities in my studies, sorry. If that was his priority, I hope he got what he wanted. He can write 30 sentences in bad Latin online, but he can't get through 3 sentences of Horace and you and I know that for a fact.Some people want to learn French to order in a cafe in Paris, some want to read Satre and could give less of a fuck if they can put a sentence together. This is not a difficult concept to appreciate.
>>21035260>be able to read Ciceroare you?
>>21035344>This is not a difficult concept to appreciate.I find pretty hard to believe that if someone have the level to read literature, and have spent some time doing it, he can't write more or less straightforward correct sentences.
>>21035345>never refute a single point just make ad hominems>write it in Latin!>you can't read either!>prove it!I'm not the one giving advice in this thread pal. I just saw some guy telling another guy to write in Latin and made me roll my fucking eyes. Especially after I explained why it makes no sense right here >>21035260 and here >>21035344I'm working on the Gospel of John and Attic Nights right now, not that this would impress you, gigachad lurker. Nor are you are going to write to me in Latin or tell me what the fuck you are reading anyways. Because that's how this works right? Someone writes 8 paragraphs explaining a point and then you say "write it in Latin" and don't address anything that they said. Right?

>>21035353they're totally different processes, you may have an extensive passive vocabulary of 20000 words and have internalized all grammar and syntax rules of a language to the point you aren't even conscious of it while reading refined literature but not be able to form simple sentences, that's totally normal
>>21035422greekyou don't want to have anything to do with us latinniggers, just look at us
>>21035353i can read literature in russian, german and to a lesser extent french and italian and yet my ability to write and speak in those languages is poor to nonexistent. it's normal, you learn what you practice. i don't think you have much language experience if you find that "hard to believe" because it's very common for language production to lag massively behind comprehension.
>>21035452Even toddlers cN understand language not being able to speak it
>>21035452It's my experience with Italian. I can't imagine not being able to write simple stuff after spending hundreds of hours reading in it.

>>21035544No? If you tell a toddler to do something they can depite being unable to speak.
>>21035283Is that surprising? Even stupid ancient Romans spoke fluent Latin, barring language-specific impairment.
>>21035260Why's writing in Latin no longer of interest? People were very much doing it actively up until the 18th and 19th centuries, long after it was no longer spoken natively.
>>21036981it's just a coping mechanism
>>21036433I came across something that pointed towards welsh being a close relative isolate of the language spoken and written as ancient egyptian somewhat as a product of ancient migrations.I was curious how difficult it might be to learn the language well enough to investigate the claims.
>>21037318Its impossible since modern Welsh is nothing like ancient Welsh so there could barely be any resemblance
>>21037420According to the source there's enough similarity and conserved words that the logograms are intelligible.It's got to be better than the torturous way that hieroglyphics are currently interpreted. apparently they were using old welsh dictionaries and seemingly making significant progress since the words match the images used. It would also open up the old welsh history books, their laws fiolk tales and king lists if I were to try it.
>>21037182Which, writing in Latin or saying that writing in Latin is pointless?
>>21037318This claim is extremely implausible. Welsh and Egyptian aren't even in the same language family; the one is Indo-European, the other is Afro-Asiatic, and this is not particularly contested. That said, if you're interested in resources for either language I can probably link you some.
>>21037803Anon, however that may be, they seem to be able to read hieroglyphics with welsh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-HPF98ldfwI honestly find the idea a little sceptical but if one can possibly read the ancient texts with it then it's worth a little time to study it to at least see if it's real or a spoof.
>>21037841Almost certainly a spoof. Go look at a Swadesh list of Welsh (ancient or modern) and of Egyptian (any stage) and see if you can point out any words in common.
>>21037847We don't even have any idea what the spoken language of ancient egyptian was or sounded like so that should be impossible.There are scant connections between the two such as Idris supposedly coming from North Africa somewhere or you have ancient stories of the the scots descending from the refugee ancient egyptian princess scotti and a few strange cultural comparisons.
>>21037871>We don't even have any idea what the spoken language of ancient egyptian was or sounded like so that should be impossible.We literally do? Like, we don't have phonograph records. But between knowledge of Coptic which was never lost and is written in an alphabet, loanwords into other languages and from other languages, and comparison to other Afro-Asiatic languages, we have a decent idea how the various stages of Egyptian sounded, though obviously less certain the farther back you go.
>>21037904Coptic has no relation to the language of the hieroglyphics according to Athanasius Kircher. Champollion thought it had to be coptic and spent his life trying to connect the two but made no progress.If it somehow is welsh then since it is a living language one should be able to learn it comparatively easily and use it to decipher the glyphs.Even if it does sound like it should be impossible.
>>21037958>Coptic has no relation to the language of the hieroglyphics according to Athanasius Kircher.LMFAO
>>21036981Writing in a message board was never an interest of mine with any language. But if you can't do something that you never practice and have no interest in(writing), then that guy's argument is that apparently you can't do the thing that you actually practice and focus on daily (reading). It's already been explained by many people in this thread who learned to read French, German, Russian etc that they probably can't argue with someone online in the language, but can read Kant or Tolstoy fair enough. The only way someone would be even remotely surprised by this would be if they never actually learned a language before. But I'm just sitting back and watching the shitshow. It's usually the same one guy just begging for (you)s and he never replies to anyone in Latin and even says he isn't even learning a language. Don't engage with his arguments like they actually have any validity to them.That's your brain on Wikipedia and YouTube.
>>21037796>saying that writing in Latin is pointless?this, if you can read it you can write it
>>21038910Not quite. I'm in a Greek comp course right now. Such courses and modes of instruction are not available to everyone. Reading and writing are separate skills in different parts of the brain. If you studied language in a serious capacity, you would understand this. But for you, talking to people in broken Latin and being able to read broken Latin is better than someone who translates real Latin written by Romans for an academic press.

Learning Latin via the Vulgate is fun. The original texts were written in a simple style, so the Vulgate reflects that. No crazy run-on sentences à la Cicero, and word order that mainly follows speech. Maybe I’ll move onto more Classical Latin after but I’m having so much fun now.
