Aeneid vocabulary

Salvete,
I am preparing for the AP Vergil exam, and my teacher is worried because, well, I've been slacking a bit this year due to other AP and college level classes, whatever. I believe my weakest point is my vocabulary. I get to a word I don't know, and I get stuck and have a real problem moving beyond it.

So, if anyone has suggestions on lists of vocab I can look at and work ...

Quick Question

How do you say Greeks in latin? Ex. "...the war against the Greeks."

Is it like Gracia or something? I can't remeber exactly and I didn't bring home my Latin text and I cant find it on the net.

Thanks.

plurals of 1st declension Greek nouns

SALVETE OMNES, S.V.B.E.V.

I'm just looking at New Latin Grammar, and I noticed that it does not give the plural forms of the Greek nouns. Why not? Do they not come up often?

Right now, I'm most interested in Persēs (Persian). Can anyone tell me the plurals?

Persēs (-a)
Persae
Persae
Persēn (-am)
Persē (-ā)
Persa

MVLTAS GRATIAS VALETEQVE BENE.

Greeting?

Ok I've been very mad about this but...I want to know the correct word for a greeting of saying hello. I pretty sure its ave, the latin word for hail but I've also been hearing that it could be saluto. I need to please know the right answer.

Also...I need translations of the following words:

Good Bye-Vale I pretty sure
Thank You-???
How are you?
I'm good
I'm feeling bad



Any help would be greatly ...

Reading Caesar's De bello Gallico

It is amazing! I mean, I have learnt Latin without continuity for a time and the other day I found an old edition (very cheap) of Caesar's De bello Gallico in Latin with some help in footnotes. I am trying a go at it... and it works! I mean, some constructions still puzzle me, but I am reading Latin. :o :lol: ...

ius

In this story I'm reading, there are these two blokes 'aving a bit of a barney:
"Atque ea rixa adeo inter eos exarsit, ut etiam pugnis certarent. Tandem in ius ambulant."
And now a quarrel erupted between them, and they even fought with their fists. Finally they walked in ius.
I'm assuming it means something like went to court (over the matter), but I can't find that meaning of ius anywhere. Advice would be appreciated.

Please, help with Commentariolum petitionis

Hello to all,
I am reading the Commentariolum petitionis, (The Handbook of Elections) a great little work, probably written by Quintus Cicero, Marcus' brother. He describes all the ropes of an electoral campaign in Rome (great read, anyway). There is a phrase which I find rather difficult to translate. Quintus is talking about sodalitates, kind of associations used for electoral purposes. These were on the edge of legality and in fact were made illegal some ...
