Ch 39, P&R#13, Eng -> Latin

As part of catching up with my negelected studies, I have been doing the English to Latin exercises from Wheelock, and I have a question. Those familiar with the film 'Jaws', might now like to start humming the 'daa dum' theme.

They are going to Rome to talk about conquering the Greeks.

I tried a number of ways of translating this, and would like someone to check my work please. (The first one is in ...

Sallust's View on Human Nature...

My Latin teacher has plunged us right into the 38 Latin Stories, and I'm having trouble with the Sallust (64-65)..I know requests for long translations are frowned upon & rightly so..but I wanted to know if any kind soul could tell me how my translation measured up against theirs. He is, so far, not my favorite writer...but you have to give them all a try I suppose.. :wink: ...

Vocabulary differences bt Funk and Wagnalls and Wheelock

I notice that Wheelock's vocabulary entries differ from entries in my Naw Cassell's Latin Dictionary (F & W 1968). For example, Wheelock supplies the entry fugiO, fugere, fUgI, fugitUrum, whereas F & W lists the fourth principle part as being 'fugitum'. What are the morphological differences? Is Wheelock drawing on later Latin, and F & W merely on the classical authors it cites below its entries?

Finite forms of verbs

Out of curiosity:
Wheelock says that the student has learned to conjugate a verb in all of its finite forms after learning the subjunctive. What does he mean by finite forms? Since there are finite forms of verbs, are there also infinite forms?

Need help with a selection from Ch. 36

I'm stuck on the second sentence of "I Love Her ... I Love Her Not," which reads:
Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.
I can translate each word separately, but I cannot put them together into a meaningful sentence. Is there some implied word that I should supply to make sense out of it?

Thank you very much for any help.

Three questions

1. Can inquit (and its first- and second-person forms) be used in the past tense? Wheelock gives a present translation, but in some exercises it seems to make more sense in the past.

2. Poems often have adjectives and nouns on different lines, but the English translation is awkward in such an arrangement, if even that. I think this is for metrical or rhythmical reasons in the Latin, but I find it hard/impossible to maintain ...

Wheelock Reader and 38 Latin Stories

Does anyone have the text from the Wheelock reader that they could type up here or scan? Preferably chapter 19. I only need the Latin, not the English. I would greatly appreciate it for my Latin class. It would be good if we could post the Latin and the English translations for the stories like we have the Practice and Review and Sententiae Antiquae posted. The 38 Latin Stories is also good if someone could ...

Groton and May Early Inquiry

Greetings,

I think I've managed to reason out a solution to my own question - but I'm posting here in a search for confirmation - just in case.

After working very hard to ensure that I truly understand my first two chapters of Wheelock, I dove into the first of 38 Latin Stories. While understanding the tale was simple - I wanted to be sure that I was really grasping why the words meant what ...
