Vos operor non postulo ut exsisto dementis laboro hic tamen

Hello all.

I know what this is supposed to say but want to know if it is correct in terms of spelling and grammar:

Vos operor non postulo ut exsisto dementis laboro hic tamen is succurro

(You don't have to be mad to work here but it helps)

Also can an exclamation mark can be used in Latin?

Thank you,

Ian.

Lentiri

Is this actual latin? (lentiri). If so I have no idea what it comes from. I'd much rather it were leniri.

This is probably me just being very tired, but can anyone help me?

A query for the advanced

Here's something that has been bugging me. Maybe it will bug you all too.

Quote (Allen&Greenough, Section 298, f. )

"Ipse usually agrees with the subject, even when the real emphasis in English is on a reflexive in the predicate:-
Me ipse consolor (Lael. 10) I console myself. "

Fine. I'm prepared to accept that.

But what if the verb is an imperative, as in Console ...

Old Kinchin Smith book?

I've got a copy of the old Kinchin Smith "Teach Yourself Latin."

If anyone familiar with this Latin book? Opinions?

Beach

I want to say:

The boy watched the waves from the beach.

Puer ex acta undas spectat.

I have been using ex as "out of", "from", but I am not sure if ex can be used as "from a vantage point". If that is not the case, how do I say "from" as in from a vantage point?

Ferox

Ferox (fierce, ferocious) is an adjective. Yet in my word list, I see it listed like this:

ferox -ocis

This looks like a noun entry (I've only really learned the first two declensions). The adjectives I have studied all have three parts for the masculine, feminine and neuter nouns. The adjectives themselves decline like nouns of the first two declensions.

So my questions are:

1. Are there adjectives which delcine according to the paradigms of ...
