The Loci Antiqui

Salvete,

I am new to the Wheelock's Latin curriculum, and I noticed several mention the Loci Antiqui at the back of the textbook. May I know hoe should it be used? For translation, or for extra reading? Thank you!

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?

Ch. 30 "Evidence and Confession"

... sed primo dubitavit et negavit se de his rebus responsurum esse. I don't have any trouble translating this sentence but rather I question the Latin wording. Shouldn't the next to last word be responsurus(masculine)?

Vocative endings

Wheelock says that the vocative singular endings of nouns like filius end in -i but that the vocative singular of adjectives ending in -ius is -ie. Can anyone supply some examples of this type of adjective because I have never seen them. They must be a rare declension of adjective rarely seen.

narravi quod eram (L.A. 9)

Wheelock, adapted from Horace wrote:Nūlla fors mihi tē, Maecēnās, obtulit: optimus Vergilius et post hunc Varius dīxērunt quid essem. Ut ad tē vēnī, singultim pauca locūtus (nam pudor prohibēbat plūra profārī), ego nōn dīxī mē clārō patre nātum esse sed narrāvī quod eram.


I'm kind of lost at "narrāvī quod eram". Here's what I've got so far:

"No accident offered you to me, Maecenas: the very great Virgil, and after him Varius, told you what I ...

sequence of tenses

Wheelock p. 205 says an exception to the rule is " a present tense used for the vivid narration of past events". Could someone please provide an example demonstrating this? I don't recall seeing a sentence like this in the book iteslf.

Loci Antiqui 12 and 13

Hello, all! I love the forum. Been lurking for a while, but I've finally come to a rather difficult little bit in Loci Antiqui (It's been a crazy 9 months, but I've managed to get all the way through Wheelock's Chapters. Yey!)

Both of these passages are rather short, so I'll just reproduce them in full along with my attempts. I've emboldened the parts that I've found most difficult. I tend to leave my own ...
