Sapientia est pulchrum.

I am a beginner, studying from Learn to Read Latin by Keller and Russell. The Workbook, in Chapter III, Drill 24-28, Sentence 9, asks for a translation of Sapientia est pulchrum. There are no macrons. At first glance, this seemed trivially easy. But, I can't seem to conjure up a translation with agreement between sapientia and pulchrum. Would appreciate any help.

Which reading material contains enough vocab?

Does anyone know which book contains enough vocab to learn latin to an advance level?

Maybe one of Caesar's books?

Speaking of vocab, the average english speaknig person uses ~50,000 words, how many would there be in latin?

thanks

BTW to those who like to be funny, a dictionary is not what I am looking for.

Gerundives and participles

I found this definition of the gerundive in my American Heritage Dictionary interesting: A verbal adjective in Latin that in the nominative case expresses fitness or obligation and in other cases functions as a future passive participle.

Um... so does this mean that a future passive participle in the nominative case isn’t a gerundive? :)

Oh yes, I use the imperfect stem to memorize the present active ...

Key Arnold's prose?

Does anyone know if there is a key to Latin Prose Composition, Arnold - Bradley?

Someone asked me to teach Latin prose, but it would be less work if I had a key, otherwise I will have to make it myself and I need my time!

Thnx,

Moerus.
