Round-Up: July 7

Here is a round-up of today's blog posts - and for previous posts, check out the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives. You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you might prefer to subscribe by email. I've started something new today, writing my own Aesop's fables in Latin over at Evan Millner's Latin ning, Schola (a fantastic place to read and write everyday Latin, if you are interested in such things!).

Schola Cyberdiarium: Schola forum latinum est, et in illo meo cyberdiario fabulas Aesopi scribo verbis meis. In ascriptione novissima, narravi fabulam De gallina quae ova aurea pariebat.

Learning Latin Links. The link for today is Laudator Temporis Acti - one of my very favorite Latin blogs!

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Auribus oculi fideliores sunt (English: The eyes are more trustworthy than the ears - in other words: seeing is believing). You can use the Javascript to include the Latin proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage, blog, or wiki. Meanwhile, to read a brief essay about this proverb, visit the website.

Greek Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Ἅμα δίδου καὶ λάμβανε. (English: Simultaneously take and give). You can use the Javascript to include the Greek proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage, blog, or wiki - and each Greek proverb also comes with a Latin version.

Grammatice. As one of my new summer projects, I'm publishing some notes here about grammar and linguistics that I hope will be useful for Latin students and teachers. Today's post is about Final m and Nasalized Vowels in Latin - covering both the logical of elision in poetry, as well as how we got Spanish amigo from Latin amicus. For your numerical amusement, it's Sudoku played with Roman numerals! You can visit the blog for a large version of today's puzzle, easier to print out and play.

How-To Technology Tips. Today's technology tip is about Navigating - including a special hack for filtering based on number of tags, along with the wonderful tag cloud.

Latin Via Fables: I've added a Perry fable type, with a Latin version by Steinhowel plus an illustration, to the blog today. This time it is Perry 153, the story of the foolish sheep who made a peace treaty with the wolves. Here is the illustration:
