Links July 30   Recently updated !

Here are some interesting articles on classical subjects we found interesting this week!

  • Do you know about LOGEION?  This dictionary tool from the Unversity of Chicago works for Latin and Greek, is indexed to several dictionaries American and European, and gives frequency stats, collocations (other words often found in proximity), and multiple exemplaria in context.  There’s an app, too, and its free!
  • Over 40 Latin teachers made quite an impression at the NTPRS conference in Virginia this past week.  Among their more notable moments is the choir that performed Latin versions of recent music, now viewable on YouTube.
  • The Wall Street Journal ran an article on German filmmaker Warner Herzog’s thoughts on ancient wisdom.
  • Looking for bad puns in service of editorial comments?  Take a look at How much does a Grecian Urn? for all the shameless uses of Greek culture in the name of satire you can stand.
  • Like linguistics and Proto-Indo-European?  Then you’ll love this article in the New Yorker about a lecture Joshua Katz (Princeton) gave in New York.
