Salve, Bandit V.!

Gratus aut grata in Vicipaediam Latinam acciperis! Ob contributa tua gratias agimus speramusque te delectari posse et manere velle.

Cum Vicipaedia nostra parva humilisque sit, paucae et exiguae sunt paginae auxilii, a quibus hortamur te ut incipias:

Si plura de moribus et institutis Vicipaedianis scire vis, tibi suademus, roges in nostra Taberna, vel roges unum ex magistratibus directe.

In paginis encyclopaedicis mos noster non est nomen dare, sed in paginis disputationis memento editis tuis nomen subscribere, litteris impressis --~~~~, quibus insertis nomen tuum et dies apparebit. Quamquam vero in paginis ipsis nisi lingua Latina uti non licet, in paginis disputationum qualibet lingua scribi solet. Quodsi quid interrogare velis, vel Taberna vel pagina disputationis mea tibi patebit. Ave! Spero te "Vicipaedianum" aut "Vicipaedianam" fieri velle!

Dear Bandit, no offense but your latin would benefit very much if you checked each word in an online dictionary such as Words, to verify if you have the right gender number and case for each one.--Rafaelgarcia 04:12, 7 Iunii 2009 (UTC)
There is a downloadable version of Words available here. That's what I usually use when I need to look something up. --SECUNDUS ZEPHYRUS 16:40, 7 Iunii 2009 (UTC)
Thank You! I'm sure it will help my English to Latin a lot. Bandit V. 12:26, 7 Iunii 2009 (CST)

music and linguistics in collegeRecensere

I did both, actually all three...

I started as a Math/Physics double major, ended up with a Music/Classics double major and a Physics minor... Since I've been doing my M.A. (which I just finished...) in Classics, I have also been concentrating on Linguistics. Feel free to ask any questions... --Ioscius (disp) 04:05, 11 Iunii 2009 (UTC)

I have one very big one, is it possible to end up working towards a degree in Classics with no real education in them ante college? and on music, having limited ability on theory and reading music, even though I'm a half decent guitarist and have been drumming for 8 years, is it still possible to be in college music with limited experience? --Bandit V. 23:33, 10 Iunii 2009 (CST)
I'd say the first is easier than the second. Most colleges will let you take the introductory courses for Latin/Greek in 3-4 semesters, leaving you plenty of time to take enough upper level courses for a degree.
But for music school, nearly all schools I know of require you to both read music well, sight read music well, and play your instrument with a high level of proficiency, just to pass the audition for entrance. Once you have been accepted, they will teach you theory. If you want to study music in college, start working on your reading and start working hard. Look up the audition requirements for Oklahoma. Are you auditioning on guitar or percussion? If guitar, classical or jazz? If percussion, orchestral or drumset?
I will tell you this... of all the disciplines I studied in college... Math, Physics, 5 foreign languages, Linguistics, Classics... music school was by far the hardest, the most demanding, and the most frustrating. Know what you are getting yourself into, and talk to other people who went through the University of Oklahoma music school. Surely they can tell you more than I can. --Ioscius (disp) 04:53, 11 Iunii 2009 (UTC)
I would be trying on drumset but I also have to consider the career choices and the ability to pick where I live so I might have to go with linguistics or meteorology. Thanks for the info though. Bandit V. 16:10, 11 Iunii 2009 (CST)
