More homework help -- negatives, questions, emphasis

English to Latin translation. This time practice negation, questions and emphasis (e.g., Does Caesar have the ball?)

The lesson I'm working through introduces the basics but leaves a lot of unanswered questions, so I expect I've made a lot of mistakes here trying to do stuff the lesson didn't cover.

Mark has a sword.
Marcus gladium tenet.
Mark has a sword.
Gladium Marcus tenet.
Mark has a sword.
Tenet Marcus gladium.
Mark has a sword. ...

Translation question

I'm reading "Latin for Today 2nd Year Course" and I am having a problem with one sentence.

"Hic adulescens ita me amabat, ita verebatur ut me quasi magistro uteretur."

My lame attempt at a translation is:

This youth thus loved me, thus he feared that he didn't use me as a teacher.

Am I far off? Any help will be appreciated.

Old Latin
Golden Age Latin
Silver Age Latin
Late Latin
Medieval Latin

New Latin

Are the differences very great, or more similar to the difference between contemporary English and Shakespearean ...

Beginner's question.

A text I've been perusing offers carrus, defining it as a cart or waggon. But then later, in the examples, it uses currus instead. My Latin reference lists both words, defining carrus as a four-wheeled baggage waggon, and currus as a chariot or car, especially for racing or war.

What's the real story on these two nouns?

with other languages, i've found that idioms give me a better understanding of the words used in the idioms and often even the language itself. i'm hoping latin is no different.

i thought of just doing a google search, but i don't think i'm good enough at latin to judge ...

Meanings of two words

Hello all!

1) I would like to know the meaning to the dark (black) color. My dictionary (WORDS), says the following about it:

deadly, terrible, grisly (esp. connected with underworld); poisonous: spiteful

A friend of mine said the correct word should be "artror" or "artroris", but that's what my dictionary says about both of them:

artro, artrare, ...
