§ 439. Exercises I, II Dative of Purpose/End for Which, P186

I'll begin by uttering a rare criticism: this dative of purpose lesson in my opinion has not been explained very well here. That's to say, every time there is a dative like this I need to see in brackets (for), and D'Ooge does include that :? Hence I don't understand this concept properly, probably the only thing in which I don't see any logic in the whole ...

D'Ooge's Latin For Beginners Key

No key was produced by the publisher of Benjamin L. D'Ooge's Latin For Beginners because the book was intended for classroom use. To help independent learners, this key was prepared by a small group of Textkit Forum members who were all kind enough to volunteer their time, energy and skills.

The key can be found here:

answer key??

Hi,

Are there any updates on when the answer key will be available?

I want to start a beginner book with my 15 year old in January and am torn between Henle and LFB. Henle at least has a partial answer key for it.

§ 428. Irregular verb fero; Dative with prep+verb compounds.

So these verbs can have two objects: a direct and indirect? Interesting.

-When the boats were approaching the island the barbarians, moved by terror, tried to retreat.

5. Galli moleste ferebant Romanos agros vastare.
-The Gauls were very annoyed that the Romans were destroying (their) fields. (Is that right?)

6. Caesar sociís imperavit ne finitimis suis bellum inferrent.

BLD Ex: 82 Part 1 #3

It is asking to translate from Latin to English the following: amici legati mali.

My translation is: "The friends of the wicked lieutenant".

Does this seem correct or could it be "The wicked friends of the lieutenant"?

§400 - Conjunction "cum", Exercises I and II, P. 1

D'ooge EX. 39/40

Hello all,

I am new to Latin, new to D'ooge and new to this forum. I was wondering if anyone would be able to clarify something for me in Exercises 39 and 40.

In Exercise 39 Part I Number 1, it asks for the English translation of "Diana est dea", which I translate as "Diana is a goddess". In the Latin version, why is dea, which is the object of the sentence, in nominative singular ...

§394. Exercises I and II. Subjunctive Characteristic, 2. Acc

You will see, some sound quite dodgy.
I would greatly appreciate a clear expression of the subjunctive of characteristic. I understand why "Quis est qui suam domum not amet?" is subjunctive and "Caesar est is qui nos ducat" but some which just describe seem indicative sometimes "there were some who didn't want to do it" or the like.

I. 1. In Germaniae silvis sunt multa genera ferarum quae reliquis in locis non sint.
In the ...
