Dum nox erat et caopiae dormiebant duces Troianorum in castris consilium habebant. Ad hos Nisus Eryalusque iuvenes Troiani audent venire.

"Animos virtutemque ...

Genitive pronouns

1) Wheelock's states that possessive genitives remain unchanged regardless of number, gender, etc. Could someone give me an example?

2) Would 'frater tui' be the best way to write 'your brother'?

Thank you.

Igitur vs Quare

I translated this sentence:

He will, therefore, thank the queen and the whole people.

As:

Quare, reginae et toti populo gratias aget.

Should I have used 'igitur' in place of 'quare'?
Also, since 'populus' is plura should it read 'totis populis'?

Thank you.

Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati question

I'm on the second chapter of Wheelocks (Yay me!) and it's going well. I do have a question about the Loci Antiqui and Loci Immutati. When should I start trying to do those? They don't seem to be coordinated with any particular chapters.

Thanks!

Multiple verbs

Read, please:

Sententiam bonam vir habet tamen virum magistri monere debet reginae consilia demonstrare.

With four verbs in this sentence and the Roman's delight in putting any word anywhere, how will I know who is doing what?

Thank you.

sorry, quick question on Ch.29

HEy All,
I just started Ch. 29 and I was a bit confused because the topic is imperfect subjunctives but there seem to be both passive and active forms, and in the back there were no forms that corresponded exactly to their paradigms. Anyone have any light to shed?
Thanks.

&#!#$ genitive case

I understand the other cases but the genitive gives me a lot of trouble.

What does this read:
Virorum nostrorum magnorum animos curae bella superabant.

Of the men of our of the greats...I wish Wheelock had spent more time explaining each case.

I have trouble firstly because I can't figure out the 'curae bella' relation and secondly that three word genitive phrase. (Why in hell did they create a noun like bellum and an adjective ...
