Question about the D'Ooge Key

Hello all,

I just started with the D'Ooge method this weekend, although I have previously (briefly) studied Latin with the French Assimil method.

I have two (very basic) questions garding the keys:

-In paragraph 22, page 13 of the book, exercise 6:

Rosam in comis habet.

The key says that the predicate is "in comis habet", yet as Rosam is the direct object, shouldn't the whole sentence be a predicate (and the subject is merely ...

BLD § 258 I Latin-English Exercise

The Romans invade the Enemy's Country

Olim pedites Romani cum equitibus velocibus in hostium urbem iter faciebant. Ubi non longe afuerunt, raperunt agricolam, qui eis viam brevem et facilem demonstravit. Iam Romani moenia alta, turris validas aliaque opera urbis videre poterant. In moenibus stabant multi principes. Principes ubi viderunt Romanos, iusserunt civis lapides aliaque tela de muris iacere. Tum milites fortes contineri a proelio non poterant et acer imperator signum tuba dari iussit. Summa vi ...

Map of Ancient Italy

I recently scanned in the image of ancient Italy referred to in the text (pg. 1, PDF pg 11). Unfortunately I won’t be able to leave it up indefinitely since the image is 2.62. Mb and I expect to need the space at some point in the future. But it’s available for now.

post scriptum: As mentioned, I now have need of the space and can no longer make ...

Book Dedication

I just received my copy of the D'Ooge book and found the book dedication:

Filiolo meo
qui me non solum dicenda
sed etaim tacenda docuit
hoc opusculum est dedicatum


I think it is:

To my little son
who me not only by speech
but also without speaking teaches
this little work is dedicated

- Tim

BLD § 240 Terror Cimbrius

Becasue this is "new" material that isn't an edit change of the key, I've decided to make it a separate topic. I'm hesitating because it may bloat the forum topic list but my intention is to make it easier for people to locate sections of interest.

Other opinions welcomed.

 2 Italiae adpropinqaverant et copias Romani maximo proelio vicerant.

Pages 21 and 22 in wrong order

While reading an article on the life and work of John Buridan, I came across a lot of Latin quotes, without any translation, and feeling like learning Latin sooner than I planned(after learning Greek for who knows how long). So I looked through D'Ooge a bit, just to see what I'm supposed to meet when I do. And I found that the pages 21 and 22 have switched their position. ...

Reading Matter (Inspired by Sextus and Praeda)

Steven super castra volat, is enim episcopi volebat ius despuere. Pulcherrimam existimabant esse oppidi eius aquam. Nihil etenim in poculis magis concupiverunt. Sed pessima Sexti femina, Lesbia nomine, etiamque consumpta aqua, praedam libenter non tradidit. Simulac visus est eius vultus Sextus ad castra properat. Deinde gallinas novam praedam instruxit, nam plurimum valerent illae, ac bene possent bibere ius. Caesar vero in Gallia moratus in illos fecit impetum, tamen ei maxime iterum resistebant atque iterum. Sextus ...
