This is a weird translation, but...

How do you translate "genie"? Like the dude in Aladin, the celestial thingy in the lamp, you know. I am writing a buddhist requiem for someone who passed away in latin, this was her nickname, so any help would greatly be appreciated.

Translation help

Someone asked me to translate the following into Latin:

"Therefor I speak Latin and you do not."

My Latin sucks bigtime, I started learning it some time ago but I can't find the time right now. I need to start over anyway ;). This is all I could find:

proinde = "therefor"
loquor latine = "I speak latin"

face = fac ut?

Nepos' Life of Pausanias has this letter from Pausanias to Xerxes (2:3-4)

Why is the genitive & genus of every substantive indicat

Salvete,

Beeing a beginner in latin, I have some questions:
In my latin book, all substantives are presented in this way: puella,-ae (f), vinum, -i (n) etc. Isn't it redundant to specify the genus and genitive? Isn't it obvious from the ending what the genus and the genitive of the word are? Since all the books I've seen so far indicate them, there surely must be some importance to this information.

thanks

Double check this for me...

My friend wanted me to translate this phrase into latin:
Listen to the worm of doubt, for it speaks the truth

I had a little difficulty but this is what I thought:
Audites ad dubitem vermim, pro veritam diceret.

Is that correct?

Conjugation sheet?

Hello, I am learning latin, I understand the grammar completely(as far as I have gotten, that is) but I wanted to know if there is a sheet of the conjugations of verbs and nouns (and adjectives) that I can print out?

Also, I want to know about the adverbs in latin, before I go through a download-athon again, which book deals with this?

Thanks!

I'm getting so confused about the distributive numbers. I understand all the others, but I can't understand how to use the distributives.
How are they used? :?
