Accentuation: ádmonē OR admónē

In Wheelock chapter 3, we find the following translation Latin-to-English exercise:

10. Sēcrētē amīcōs admonē; laudā palam.

I'm wondering about the accent on the word admonē. Should it be penultimate (admónē) or antepenultimate (ádmonē)? Of course, the form of monē is penultimate, since it's a two-syllable word. By the regular rules, I would expect it to be antepenultimate. Is there something special in the word because it has a prefix (ad-monēre)?

Thanks!

Jason

Demonstrative Adjectives/Pronouns

I chapter 9, Wheelock gives the breakdown of ille/illa/illud and hic/haec/hoc.

I'm finding it extremely difficult to master these forms.

Do you have any advice for a novice?

Thanks!

A typo in the new Wheelock?

In Wheelock, 6th edition, Chapter 22, Practice and Review (page 144), Sentence 5 reads: Contrā aliās manūs malōrum cīvium eaedem rēs iterum parābuntur; rem pūblicam dēfendēmus et istī cito discēdent. We can translate this as: The same things (resources) will again be prepared against other bands of evil citizens; we shall defend the republic and those men will depart quickly. No problem here.

But in the new 7th edition (page 179), this has been changed ...

Wheelock's Latin - A Comparison of Editions

Salvete,

I have noticed a Wheelock Latin's 6th and 7th Edition selling in bookshops, so does anyone know what's the difference between both editions? And most importantly, is it fine to just get the sixth edition? - Is learning compromised in any manner? Your advice is greatly appreciated!

Phaethon

How is this word pronounced? I know the 2 dots over the e changes the pronunciation but that is no clue to how the entire word is correctly pronounced. Is there an audio file which has this word?

personal pronouns

Wheelock ch. 11 says nostrum and vestrum are partitive genitives and nostri and vestri are objective genitives; I understand that but since nostrum and vestrum have neuter endings does this mean that nostri and vestri are neuter as well?

warmenhoven wheelock vocab learner

http://www.warmenhoven.org/latin/vocab/ used to contain an amazing resource for learning Wheelock information - it appears to be down (perhaps permanently)

Does anyone know of a comparable resource?
