Pronunciation question

:?: Quick question on pronunciation. In the word nauta it is listed as saying the au as "ow",as in, cow. Now a days we use the sound "aw"; which would be more accurate, or would it be something in between, like a softer "aw"?

Readers or Primers

:?: I'm just starting with D'Ooge's Latin for Beginners, and I was wondering if there was a Reader or Primer that might be a good read to go along with it. Also what would all of you recommend as the first 'works' to be attempted after finishing the course?

Thanks,

Ninety-Five Year Old Book Review

Salvete Omnes,

For those of you who love and cherish D'Ooge's Latin for Beginners, go to the JSTOR site http://www.jstor.org/ and browse for the 1912 review. It is a very cogent and detailed analysis of our favorite Latin textbook. The review is amazingly fresh; it seems like it could have been written recently except for a few out-of-date references.

Note: it is actually easier to google "D'Ooge Latin for ...

willing to learn latin!

Hello to everyone. I have a great time learning languages and have decided to try Latin. I downloaded the D'Ooge method and printed out the first 25 lessons or so; right now I'm on lesson 15 (in three days! I have plenty of time now and want to take advantage of it while it lasts) and so far I find it a very bright, efficient method, at least the best I've been able to find. ...

Ex 62 P. 26 Part II

Hi,
I have a question concerning the Part II of the Ex. 62.
The question that i´m concerned with is the number 5 that I copy here:

(His) daughter is getting (parat) a good dinner for the farmer.

The correct answer, according to the key, is (i'm omiting all the long syllabes indicators.) :

Filia agricolae bonam cenam parat.

However, this translation doesn't make a clair difference about the person for whom the dinner is. ...

Usage of the "-que" Enclitic?

Is the "-que" enclitic commonly used for anything except joining noun lists? The reason I ask is that in D'Ooge (and Wheelock, IIRC) I don't recall seeing any other use for it. E.g., Curo feminae liberique.

But in Lingua Latina, Hans Orberg uses "-que" to join sentence clauses. I was wondering if anyone here could provide some guidance on how to best use this little caboose.
