Missing pages in Rutherford book.

Did anyone ever find the missing pages in W Gunion Rutherford's book "First Greek Grammar Syntax" (an E book on this site)? I can provide a list of the page numbers if you have the book.

Thanks

Arghh - wrong section - I'll repost in Greek queries!

Bucolic diaeresis

Hi,
i have been told that there is diaeresis between the 4th and 5th foot of this line of Vergil
' iguine, sed vires haud pertulit. ocius ensem'

However, i know nothing of scansion so could somebody point out where it is and what vowel is pronounced differently.

Thanks
S.B.

Ut without a verb

Hi all,

How do you translate ut in a subordinate clause without a verb? This is the sentence that prompted my question:

Romam quam celerrime regressus, heres Caesaris testamento adoptatus est atque, cum cognovisset qui Caesarem necavissent, statim constituit avunculum mortuum, ut patrem, olim ulcisci.
After returning to Rome as quickly as possible, the heir of Caesar was adopted by his will and, when he had learned who had killed Caesar, he immediately decided one ...

how do you say it? and a thought

First:

What is the classical pronunciation of the "eu" in words like "Europa" and "Euboea"? Do the e and the u make a diphthong? Are they pronounced separately? Perhaps it's a Greek thing? (Which I don't know yet, so any clues will help immensely.

Also, my ear and mind are at war over magister. According to the rules of accentuation, "gis" is a long syllable; the penult, when long, ought to receive the accent. Yet ...

newbie confusion

I have a book on grammar that in discussing word order uses the following sentence:

Taurum in ripa puella videt.
(bull on shore girl sees)
or
In ripa taurum puella videt.
(on shore bull girl sees)

It states that rearranging the words changes the emphasis to the whatever word is used first.

Pardon my ignorance but ...

You say disuptandem, I say disputandum...

Salve,

I was reading an article today in which the author threw in this phrase: De gustibus non disuptandem est (my emphasis). A quick search on Google resulted in "De gustibus non disuptandum est" with the offered translation of "there is no accounting for taste."

Not satisfied, I opened my books once I got home from work but had some difficulty in translating disputandem/disputandum.

Can someone corroborate my translation?

The word should be disputandum - ...

Irregularities

I wish to begin Latin along with my studies of Russian, and I'm wonderin how irregular Latin is. I know that Russian has a lot of irregular verbs, etc. and I'm wondering if I'd encounter the same thing with Latin. Also, what's all this I'm reading about the usage of v/w/u? And lastly, my Russian is at an intermediate stage, but I still need a lot of work before I'm going to be fluent, namely ...
