Usor:Gradus 1883

E Victionario
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Sorry for not writing this in Latin (yes, I admit, my Latin has become sort of rusty...):

I've got this great Latin dictionary "Gradus ad Parnassum" (Paris, 1883 - 984 pages of very tight print), which gives Latin synonyms for all words contained in it, along with usual epitetha, quotes in Latin from famous authors, etc...

Every once and a while, when I feel the urge, like now for the word Vānitās (which I had liked to use when explaining to someone where the word Vanity comes from), I'd add some of the content of that dictionary to the "Victiōnārium".

Because all of this comes from said Gradus ad Parnassum, which is Public Domain (like the 1911 Brittanica for en:wikipedia), and not things I write myself under GPL, I chose Gradus 1883 as my user name for the Victiōnārium.

But please don't leave messages here: I'm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Francis_Schonken

I will create http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Francis_Schonken/Latinus for when one wants to communicate with me about Latin parts of Wikimedia (in Nederlands, English, Français, Deutsch, etc... no Japanese however).
