Unit 1 Ex - Section I (pg 33) - #13

#13: Cum poeta e portis in viam ambulo (ambulabam).
M&F Key: I am walking (was walking) out of the gate onto the path.

Um... I think you missed the cum poeta part of the sentence.

Unit 1 Drill - Section III - # 3, 5, 8

Unit 1 Drill - Section III (pg 32) - # 3, 5, 8
Translate into Latin.

#3: of women
M&F Answer Key: puellarum

puella = girl (vocab word actually introduced in Unit 2)
I believe it should be feminae.

#5: crown (object)
M&F Answer Key: corona

Corona would make it the subject.
Since they are asking for the object, I believe it should be the ACC, or coronam.

#8: they used to be afraid ...

Unit One Drill - Section I - #11

Unit One Drill - Section I (pg 31) - #11:

Turbamne terrebas? Non terrebam.

In the M&F Answer Key (http://home.comcast.net/~baroque77/unit_one.pdf), it gives the answer for #11 as:

Did the crowd used to frighten you? I was not frightened (by it).

Is this correct? It seems to me that "turbam" is the direct object, so I thought it should translate to:

Did you (used to) frighten the crowd? No, ...

Unit 2 Exercises Confusion

In #'s 4-7 of the Exercises of Unit 2, I am quite confused about how to translate the protases...

4. Incolae si feminas insulae damnarent, nautae ad terram venire non dubitarent.

What does the "insulae" connect with? Is it a genitive of penalty (condemned to the island), a genitive modifying Incolae (inhabitants of the island), or is it "women of the island?"

5. Incolae si insulae feminas damnavissent, nautae ad terram venire non dubitavissent.

Here, ...

General Question. How much time?

I completed a correspondence Latin course a couple of years back, using Paterson and Macnaughton's 2 volume "The Approach to Latin" and am keen to return to study.

How much time do people devote to M&F's course - an hour a day everyday? half a day? a full day once a week?

What have others found successful?

Thanks for any input.

M&F Answer Key

I am interested in creating an answer key for the exercises in Moreland and Fleischer. I'm looking for anyone who might be interested in helping with this... namely, people who would like to make contributions and help with proof reading and the like.

Unt 3 Questions.

Regarding Clauses of Purpose, M&F rattles on about Primary and Secondary Tenses and how the verbs in the independent and dependent clauses always go toghether with their counterparts. In contrast, my Wheelock text makes no distinction toward that whatsoever, and makes the subject MUCH simpler. :P Does this tense-dividing matter much?
For example, M&F diffrentiates how the Perfect tense is used in both categories, i.e. perfect in ...
