1) Lego Phaedri fabellam de lupo et agno.
Phaedrae fabella de lupo et agno a me legitur.

2) Carmina poetarum non tantum legimus sed etiam ediscimus.
Carmina poetarum non tantum a nobis legiuntur sed etiam a nobis ediscuntur.

3) Memoriam nostri servatis.
Memoria nostri seneantur.

Scanning Latin verse

I'm currently learning to scan Latin poetry, starting off with simple hexameters and pentameters but I have to say that I'm not getting any idea that this is ever going to come naturally. Whereas with English poetry it's easy to feel whether something is going dum-de-dum or de-dum, de dum, in Latin (for example) some vowels are counted as long simply because they are in front of two consonants and most words don't break at ...

Learn to Read Latin translation help1

Learn to Read Latin is one dense piece of work I must say. In fact, just three chapters approximate nine of wheelock, and of course, some of the reading gives a bit of trouble, for example:

suos in acervum conicere sarcinas et arma ptare ferroque non auro reciperare patriam iubet... (Cicero)

My stab:

Recovering the country with iron and not gold orders throwing together one's own bundle in the heap and putting on one's armor.

fut. pass. imp?

Hi everyone,

I don't know if this has already been brought up, but is there a future passive imperative? It's really hard to find any info on this (let alone the future imperative). Also, how do you use the 3rd person of future imperatives (active and passive)? Is it sort of like a hortatory subjunctive?

Case: A matter of form or function?

After A.T. Robertson studied Indo-European linguistics, and Sanskrit in particular, he became convinced that case was a matter of function and not of form. Thus, he broke ranks with the tradition of classical Greek grammarians in identifying eight cases (if the vocative is assumed to be a true case) instead of five. His influence continued on among some of the New Testament grammarians, though the classical grammarians--then and still now--largely ingnored the results of his ...
