M&F Unit2 Pg46 Reading

<br />I'm working through the Reading on Page 46.

M&F Unit2 Pg45 #22

<br />I wanted to check my translation of this sentence.<br /><br />Et gloria incolis provinciae et culpa, sed poeta de natura incolarum tacuit.<br /><br />I first worked it out to:<br /><br /> Both glory of the province's inhabitants and fault,<br /> but the poet was silent about the nature of the inhabitants.<br /><br />Then I tried to refine it a bit so it makes more sense, but in doing so, I moved the second part ...

M&F Unit2 Pg45 #13

<br />De natura animae nec cum poeta senseram nec sententiam mutare optaveram.<br />The souls neither agreed with the poets nor desired to change opinion about nature.<br /><br />This sentence doesn't make sense to me. Did I translate it incorrectly?<br /><br />I'm not sure how "souls" would agree or disaree with "poets", or how "souls" could change their "opinion" about anything.<br /><br />senseram = pluperfect<br />optaveram = pluperfect<br />

M&F Unit 1 Pg35 #19

<br />I haven't made much progress with Latin these last two weeks so I only have one small question. I couldn't work out #19 on Pg35 of M&F. The second part of the sentence boggles me with it's use of the DAT or ABL. After much revision, this is what I've come up with:<br /><br />Feminae est forma, fama nautae; feminis est forma, fama nautis.<br /><br />Beauty is women, report/opinion of the sailors; beauty is ...

Just checking M & F Unit 7

As there doesn't seem to be an answer key, or not one that's available to me at any rate, could someone have a quick look at this exercise for me, please? It's translating the following rather implausible sentences from English into Latin.<br /><br />What book is this which has been sent to us by our friends with whom we were walking?<br /><br /> Qui liber est hic qui nobis a amicis quibuscum ambulabamus missus est?<br ...
