Ex. 211


I cannot understand the grammar of one of these sentences; specifically:
Vêrô, sed iî recûsâvêrunt frûmentum dare

Two problems; The nominative plural demonstrative 'ii'. It must be the personal pronoun 'they' because of the lack of agreeing noun which is a requirement of a demonstrative adjective. But, it's entirely unnecessary considering the subject has already been formerly established (townsmen), and the verb provides the person and number satisfactorily. Furthermore, the key translation includes an ...

Pronunciation of words

Soo, we have a little problem here :) Well, it is obvious that the Latin words are being pronounced in a different way than the English. What I want to know is, if there is some kind of transcription like the one in English. Or at least can someone tell me, if the pronunciation is similar to the German for example. In German you say what you ...

To Jeff. D'Ooge pages in wrong order.

Hello, Jeff.
D'Ooge PDF has pages 11 and 12(21 and 22 of the PDF file) in wrong order.
And it's been that way since the file was up there.
I wondered if it is fixed these days and checked it out, but it was still that way.
Can it be taken care of sooner or later, please?

Ex 99 Question


I was reviewing older material and I came across a problem for part II of exercise 99, question 2.

"My son Sextus is carrying his booty to the Roman camp." It says not to use dative.

I came up with "Filius meus Sextus praedam suam ad castram Romanam portat." I felt weird using the accusative for Roman camp but I know I've seen that use somewhere in D'Ooge already.

The key gave me the ...

189, page 81 key translation


I was translating the english to latin exercise 189.
"There will be no danger, if we are (shall have been) careful".

When I noticed my translation was slightly incorrect compared to the key you guys here at textkit wrote. I think my problem lies in understanding the declination of adjective Attent-

My translation:
Erit non periculum, si attentum fuerimus

Key translation:
Non erit periculum, si attenti fuerimus

I wasn't entirely sure how to decline ...

Answer key response to 353 Q 2


Apologies for the number of posts i'm putting up but the question here concerns whether quo (abl of qui) should be used in a purpose clause containing a comparative.

The Question is :

They are setting out at daybreak in order that they may make a longer march before night.

The answer key gives:

Prima luce proficiscuntur ut ante noctem iter longius faciant.

Given the comparative longius is used, should not quo be used ...
