I noticed this text has numerous editions. This may be a stupid question but which edition should I go with? What are the difference between the various editions? Also, would I be looking to purchase just one book or does this course come with a variety of books?

Do I need to memorize random bold words?

I'm just starting with Wheelocks. Obviously, I need to memorize the 20 vocab words in every section. But the book includes these references to words in small bold letters (e.g. discipuli, ioci, etc.) especially toward the end of the chapter. I feel like I shouldn't move on until I know those words. Am I right? Are they covered later?

btw how do I use macrons on this site?

Wheelock's Latin 2nd half of text

We home school and my older daughters are studying Wheelock's Latin. We were able to obtain the answer key to the first half of the text (Chapters 1-40) but have not been able to find an answer key to the second half, the translations of Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati. Do any of you know how I can obtain it or have any of you translated those sections and want to share your answers ...

Wheelock's Chap. 32, SA#4

Sorry to ask such an obvious question, but this escapes me.

Wheelock's Chapter 32 SA #4: Plus novisti quid faciendum sit. What use of the subjunctive might this be with the future passive participle. Is this a subjunctive passive periphrastic construction? thanks.

Chapter 22 workbook translating English to Latin

Wheelock answer is : Iussit eos defendere rem publicam periculo. I wrote: Iussit eos rem publicam periculo defendere. Does my translation contain ambiguity because two accusatives are placed next to each other? Also what about: Eos rem publicam periculo defendere iussit?

Syllable stress in Workbook answer key

In the Wheelock's workbook (3rd ed. rev) from unit 1, my answer key says that the LAST syllable in several items is stressed:

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
(ser-VA-re, con-SER-vat, ...

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
