20 (b) sal ve RE
20 (e) an ti QUA
20 (f) iu va TE

However, the intro to Wheelock's (p. xliv) reads: In a word of three or more syllables (a) the accent falls on the next to last syllable (sometimes called the "penult"), if that syllable is long

workbook answer disagreement

Chapter 8 English to Latin translation no.2. Wheelock gives answer as Civitas tyrannos Graeco numquam gratias aget. My answer is .......gratias numquam aget. This might be considered by some nitpicking but Wheelock always says to use " standard word order" and in that context wouldn't my translation be the "correct" one? Paul

Harper's response time re: key

Hi-
It's been 5 days since I've requested the answer key to Wheelock's 7th ed and the 3rd ed. of the workbook. Not even an automated response. Does anyone recall how long it was between requesting and receiving?

wheelock workbook

I am progressing well using the workbook. Usually when I make an error it's when the word order of my answers does not agree with that of Wheelocks. Is this in and of itself considered an error? Thanks, Paul

line 10 of chapter 40 of 38 Latin Story #38

On first reading I thought Livy meant twelve thousand soldiers and five cavalry even though this did not make sense; a look at the answer key revealed Livy meant twelve thousand soldiers and five THOUSAND cavalry. If Livy really had meant just five cavalry how would the sentence have been worded?

Wheelock's answer key?

Is there an answer key for Wheelock's seventh edition available anywhere? I read that the original answer key was taken down at the request of the publisher and if needed one could be obtained by emailing the publisher. However, I emailed the publisher two weeks ago and still have no response. I'm sure everyone doesn't mind answering questions that I have with translations, but I'd really like to be able to quickly check my answers ...
