What do you think about the charge that spoken Latin is a kind of ouroboros--that it's invented for the sake of having conventions of spoken Latin?
Mostly, I'm glad to hear there's a conventiculum in Boston. I attended one at U. Kentucky years ago. It was great, but it's better to have these in tourist areas.

Currently Translating the Aeneid for class, while on the side translating Cicero's orations. National Latin Exams are coming up soon.
Thanks, I think I'd like a good mix of audio as well as textbook learning...my attention span for textbooks isn't what it used to be!
The Latinum podcasts (audio versions of the Adler textbook course) isn't so expensive, maybe I'll get the first one and see how I go...
