Facile persuādet - Roma Aeterna XLIV Lines 114-116

Facile persuādet Lucumōnī ut cupidō honōrum et cui Tarquiniī māterna tantum patria esset. The translation I have reads, "She had no trouble in persuading a man who was eager for distinction, to whom Tarquinii was only his mother's birthplace."

What is ut doing in this sentence? It doesn't seem to be signaling a purpose or result clause.

Nec diū - Roma Aeterna XLIV Line 101

Nec diū superfuit fīliō pater—The father did not long survive the son.

What kind of ablative is fīliō? I don't see an ablative of time after which, or something similar, in any of my grammar books.

Second Edition of "Reading Latin"

Greetings from the fellow who just posted a bland introduction in the open board.

You probably already know this but for those who don't, it seems Cambridge is preparing a second edition for the Reading Latin set of books. Since almost everyone prefers the second edition of Reading Greek over the first one, hopefully Jones and Sidwell will do something to similar Reading Latin. The new books should be out by June 2015.

The only ...

Veientem

On page 123 of LLPSI Orberg refers to Veientem hostem. The whole sentence is: Tullus adversus Veientem hostem dirigit suos, Albanos contra legionem Fidenatium collocat.

Am I right in taking it that Veintem is a masculine adjective agreeing with hostem.

"Complete" Latin word list with principal parts?

Hello,

Does anyone know of a list of all the words in a lexicon, e.g. Lewis & Short, along with their principal parts? Like this list, but comprehensive rather than just the most frequent words. It seems that the Vocabulary Tool at Perseus shows only the words.

Such a list could be generated using the Lewis & Short XML file, I suppose, but I was wondering if it exists already.

Thanks!

I allowed myself

Hello!
Help me please with translation to Latin: "I allowed myself".

Saying "I allowed myself" I mean "I can" or "I am currently allowed" or "I have a permission". Not somebody gave me permission, but it is something I have by default. Maybe these variants: "I let myself" or "I let myself everything".

Thanks

Ponere with accusative - possible after all?

Here’s part of a charming schoolroom (actually pergula ludi) scene from ‘Dialogues of Roman Life’ by Winbolt 1913. A teacher is teaching boys to write the alphabet on their wax tablets:

“Horati, ex armario adfer ceras”.
”Bene. - Hodie scribendi artem discetis. Iam in
ceris exeravi (I have inscribed) litteras S-A-P-I-E-N-T-I-A.
Velim per litterarum simulacra stilos ducatis: sed tardius, si vultis.
Ponite ceras in genua: in manus capite stilos.
Incipite. - Gracche, litteram S ...

Perversi difficile corriguntur Ecclesiastes 1:15

Perversi difficile corriguntur, et stultorum infinitus est numerus. The perverse are hard to be corrected, and the number of fools is infinite.

Why is difficile singular? Shouldn't it be difficiles to agree with perversi and corriguntur?
