WELCOME TO SCRIBAX !
is a DirectorTM Movie
that writes short simple Latin sentences and translates them into English.
It has a vocabulary of 200 verbs and 250 nouns; and it can therefore make up more than 100 million Latin sentences.
Scribax was programmed to think in Latin, so its Latin should be correct, its English somewhat inadequate, and its common sense non-existent (sometimes the bizarre sentences it comes up with can be vaguely amusing!).
I hope it will be useful to students beginning Latin.
was created with the help of a Mellon Grant at Bates
College. I would like to thank the Mellon Director at Bates, Greg
Struve, for teaching me how to use the DirectorTM
Program, and for his constant and invaluable assistance in creating this
