A good resource for ancient languages
« on: August 12, 2018, 03:16:52 PM »
I just discovered this site yesterday, so I haven't perused it as thoroughly as I would have liked. But I thought others here might be interested:

http://lexicity.com

With resources for ancient languages from Akkadian to Ugaritic, including links to online dictionaries, grammars, helpful charts/aids, original texts in the language in question, etc. I hope some of you find it useful! I'm going to try using it to learn some Old Irish myself  ;D

Just beware Old Church Slavonic is not what is used in the Slavic churches. Their texts are a later stage of the language, usually called simply "Church Slavonic."
O unashamed intercessor of Christians, ever loyal advocate before the Creator, do not disregard the prayerful voice of sinners but in your goodness hasten to assist us who trustfully cry out to you: Intercede always, O Mother of God, in behalf of those who honor you!

Is there a place where I can learn "Jive"?
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Yes, but without getting killed?  :laugh:

Harlem

Jive is the Latin to the Italian of Modern Ebonics. Only few native speakers left. You might have to learn it from archived sources.

Start here:

The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.
