Hi all.

Why/how can is, ea and id all be used to mean "he, she, it" (and be declined through the cases) and also be used to mean ...

1. Nouns naming individual males are masculine.
2. Nouns naming individual females are feminine.
3. Nouns ending in -os, -nis, -guis and -cis are masculine.
4. Nouns ending in -es (gen. -itis) and -ex (gen. icis) ...

Pronunciation from the official Wheelock's latin site

http://www.wheelockslatin.com/chapters/ ... owels.html

I found the audio files of the Latin pronunciations from this website. Is the pronunciation here the right one? Or is it an anglicized version?

It sounds me that the person pronounces the long and short vowels just as them in British English. Is that really the case? I've heard from many that the long and short vowels in Latin are of the difference of the ...

Pronouncing names of people in latin

Every single name in my appendix of names in my textbook which has an 'us' for an ending does not have a macron. Are they ommitting it on purpose? If it is omitted they are all being pronounced similar to the word 'Marcus'. I believe they should all be pronounced 'Marcoos'. Are all of the macrons or long u's being omitted in this appendix? Is it possible that every sinlge first name of a person ...
