Round-Up: July 5

Here is a round-up of today's Bestiaria Latina blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives).

AudioLatinProverbs.com: Today's proverb is Vacuum vas altius pleno vaso resonat. In English: An empty pot makes a deeper noise than a pot that is full. Listen to the audio, and think about how you might apply this fine little proverb!

AudioLatin.com: Here is the audio for 10 more Latin proverbs - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English translations and commentary on the proverbs, too. Today's group includes a great inscription from a sundial, Maneo nemini., "I wait for no one."

LatinViaProverbs.com: I'm continuing to work on the online guide to the Latin Via Proverbs book, with grammar notes and English translations, working through the book group by group. Today I've posted notes for Group 114, the final group of proverbs featuring second conjugation verbs and third declension nouns!

LatinViaFables.com: I'm continuing to work my way through the 15th-century Latin fables of Abstemius! With each fable I'm posting the Latin text, a segmented Latin text, along with an English translation. Today's fable is De Anu daemonem accusante: The Old Woman Accusing A Demon. This is an absolutely delightful little story which is very similar to the old Aesop's fable about Fortune and the man by the well - but this version with the old lady and the devil is a hoot!

LatinCrossword.com: This Latin crossword puzzle goes with the story of the old woman blaming the devil (see above). Below is a smaller image of the crossword; visit LatinCrossword.com for a larger version you can print along with a word list, clues, and the solution, too.

LatinCrossword.com: This Latin crossword puzzle goes with the XXX widget at SchoolhouseWidgets.com. Below is a smaller image of the crossword; visit LatinCrossword.com for a larger version you can print along with a word list, clues, and the solution, too.
