Verbosum: Latin and English Vocabulary-Building. As part of my new summer projects, I'm publishing some notes here about Latin word formation, along with some tips for English-vocabulary-building, too. Today's post is about the Latin suffix -osus - including a list of about 700 words formed with this suffix!

Learning Latin Links. As another summer project, I'm publishing some notes here about Latin resources I use online. Today's post is about the Polyglot Hebrew, Greek and Latin Bible at Sacred Texts - including a tip about how to use Google to search the Polyglot text.

Vulgate Verses. The Vulgate Verses book is now available (from Lulu Publishers), and I'm adding Study Guides at the Vulgate Verses blog. The Study Guide I've added today is for Group 32, which includes these fine words of blessing - Pax huic domui.

Latin Via Fables: I've added a Perry fable type, with a Latin version from the Jacobs & Doering Latin reader, plus a Renaisaance illustration, to the blog today. This time it is Perry 60, the story of the old man who tired of Life and summoned Death... and who was very surprised indeed when Death answered his call! Here is the illustration:
