Hello! (:

I just finished the book Lingua Latina: Familia Romana. However, I don't feel very confident in the subjunctives, the differences of meaning and time between the different forms.

Could you recommend some source that covers this well?

Thank you!

Question regarding "neque...neque"

  • Has your brother the fine asses of the Spaniards or those of the Italians? - Utrum frater tuus formosos Hispanorum asinos habet an illos Italorum?
  • He has neither those of the Spaniards nor those of the Italians, but he has the fine asses of the French. - Non habet neque Hispanorum neque ...

austulus metu coactus Romulo rem aperuit

Remus has been captured by the bandits and handed over to Numitor. Then Faustulus hearing of this reveals to Romulus his suspicions that he and Remus are the twins that were left by the Tiber.

Faustulus metu coactus Romulo rem aperuit.

Faustulus forced by fear revealed the matter to Romulus.

Is this right..?

Albertus Magnus text

For context:
Ex hac etiam ratione sequitur quod intelligi non potest, quod anima pereat pereunte corpore. Detur enim quod intelligitur: sequetur aliquod esse principium huiusmodi intelligentiae. Hoc autem esse non potest, nisi quod aut illa natura ex contrariis composita (80) sit aut quod unita sit corruptibili, et horum utrumque est contra intellectum naturae intellectualis; haec enim de se dicit naturam separatam a materia et contrarietate. Igitur nec composita est ex materia et contrarietate nec unita ...

Grammar help: A play on an existing Latin phrase


Our biology group has decided to name our project something Latin in keeping with Rudolf Virchow's statement "Omnis cellula e cellula" (all cells from cells). Our topic is cell evolution and we want to say:

All Cells from Elements: The Origins of Life

We understand Google Translate is probably incorrect, which gives us different results depending on if a period was added to the English. There it says:

Necessary books?

I'm planning on self-learning Latin, and I have no idea what textbook I should buy/download. Money isn't an issue so I don't mind paying. What textbooks have you had the best experience with? I've also noticed "readers" mentioned in these forums, what are they and which one should I get? Lastly, what are all the books types I should have (dictionary, reader, textbook, what else) and what is your recommendation on which ones I should ...

what your heart most desires translation

Hi All,
I'm writing a book and I need help translating the following into Latin, preferably Latin used in England in the circa 5th century by the church:

Press what your heart most desires

I know it's oddly phrased (hence my problem), but it's a riddle, the hero has to press the letters of an inscription in that corresponds to what his heart most desires.

Thanks for your help, that's fantastic of you,
