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 ...

Communicational grammar

Hello again,

Until now, I haven' found a grammar book that teaches how to communicate in everyday life. Don't you agree that it'd be cool to at least know the basics of communication? If you do, how do you say:

Good morning/evening
How are you?

Virgil or Vergil

Hi everyone,

I was wondering what the deal is with the name Virgil/Vergil. I see both used frequently, but Vergil seems more correct to me considering his full name (Publius Vergilius Maro). Is there a preferred form?

Pronunciation and self learning

I am fifteen years old and have recently begun teaching myself Latin with Hans Orberg's Lingua Latina series, which I'm having quite a lot of fun with. I am, however, worried about my pronunciation a bit. I have studied the pronunciation guides in the front of several grammars and dictionaries, and listened to some short clips of Latin being spoken on the Internet, so I think I at least have decent pronunciation, but simply decent ...

Positive adverb

I have to find positive adverbs from book and I think there is one error in it.

Among adverbs from which I have to find positive adverb there is superlative adverb plurime, which I think it's error (typo). I think it has to be plurimum which positive is multum.

Am I right?
