Loci Antiqui

Hey.

I am currently in a beginning Latin class but our professor wants us to attempt to do the LA sections for extra credit. I'm having problems because they are bit out of range for what I'm learning but I've done lots of reading ahead. I was wondering if I could get some help.

Here's my translation of LA 12.

TEXT: Hoc omne tempus inter tabellas ac libellos iucundisssima quiete consumpsi. "Quemadmodum," inquis, "in urbe ...

loci antiqui #7

I'm working through "cicero on war" (l.a. #7) and the last sentence of the first paragraph is confusing me:

Quare potest intellegi nullum bellum esse iustum nisi quod aut rebus repetitis geratur aut ante denuntiatum sit.

I have:
Wherefore I have realized that no war can be just unless either (it is born by the thing being returned to) or it is declared officially beforehand.

It's the part in parentheses that I can't seem to ...

Ch7 PR13

Alrighty, PR13 of chapter 7:
After bad times true virtue and much labor will help the state.

And our fabulous answer key says:
Post tempora mala virtus vera et labor multus civitatem adiuvabunt.


now, I would think that it should be "virtus verus", since virtus is masculine nominative singular. Am I missing something or is this a typo in the key?

(I am lacking in sleep so forgive me if I'm overlooking something ;)

Chapter 36 PR 15

I'm stumbling around with a translation for Chapter 36 PR 15 and came up with some questions.

The sentence is: Provided that this is done, they will beg us to spare him.

My attempts yielded two versions because I wanted to play with deponents and compare their syntax to a regular verb:

Dummodo hoc fiat, nobis precabuntur ut ei parcamus
Dummodo hoc fiat, nos orabunt ut ei parcamus

1- Did I use the deponent verb ...

Voca me (or) vocare me

Summon me !


The chapter 1 exercises seem to indicate either are imperative. . . . .

Am I wrong ? ?


Also, would "Vocamus O Domine" be "We summon (you) O God" or would you have to say "O Domine vocamus tu" ? ?

And what would "Vocamus Dei" be ? ? ?

Sorry if these questions are inane.

Chapter 2 Question

In the example sentances for Chapter 2 the answer key has
"Salve O Patria" translated as "Hello, O Fatherland".

Why is it not "Be Well O Fatherland" ?

In my 4th edition, it does not define Salve as "hello".

Can it also mean hello ? ?
