Unit I, Reading

First, I assume the answer key project is now dead?

Second, this sentence in the reading has me puzzled:

Fama enim reginae non erat cura.

I'm reading this as "Of course, the reputation of the queen was not a concern," which is something of a non sequitur. I'm wondering if the intent of the sentence is to express the fact that the queen's office was not an impediment to love she and the sailor have ...

Unit #1 Ex 19

I am working through Unit 1 exercises and drills. I got stuck at #19:
Feminae est forma, fama nautae; feminis est forma, fama nautis.
The link to the the PDF answer key seems to be down, any help would be appreciated. If I ignore the comma I can come up with:
The woman's beauty is the talk of the sailor for the first part but otherwise, the only way I could make sense of it ...

Unit 1 Ex - Section I - #13


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 Prelim Ex - Section II B - #5


Unit 1 Prelim Ex - Section II B (pg 33) - #5
Change from singular to plural

#5: est
M&F Answer Key: estis

Estis is the plural for es (2nd person, present).
I believe it should be sunt (3rd person, present).

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.

Thanks!
