feminae pulchram, correct syntax?

I just started reading D'Ooge's Latin For Beginners and I am now on part 2.

After going thru the singular and plural section I am left to conclude that, this is a correct Latin sentence?

"feminae pulchram" meaning "women are beautiful"

I am just asking, premature as it will seem to most, is if I am headed in the right direction?

A rhyme which I heard from my Latin classmates

"Latin's a dead language, as dead as dead can be
It killed off all the Romans - and now it's killing me"


I don't know about you, but that offended me. I was transfixed speechless at that. Talk about contumelias conicere!!

New to Latin

I'm very much want to learn latin thoroughly, but I'm even having trouble with the beginner books on this site. Besides the beginner books on this site, does anyone know of some free audio lessons available on the internet that would work well in concert with the beginner books provided on this site? I searched google, but didn't find anything useful.

Medieval stuff!

I have a little question for the ones who are fond of medieval Latin.


qui ac alicuius ecclesiae servitium se mancipavit


I don't see what this 'ac' means here and normally se mancipare takes a dative, why is there an accusative?

If someone knows, please let me know,
thank you,

Moerus

Participles: which case do I use?

I can't figure out when to make a participle agree with the sujbect, the object or when to make the whole thing an ablative absolute. I'm going through N&H's composition book, and the solutions seem random. For example, I know that when the participial phrase shares neither subject nor object with the main clause, then I use the ablative absolute, but N&H used it when the clauses do share a subject (D below).

A. (example ...

Do you know ...

Does anyone know how to translate in Latin?

- with varying success (in war)

- after more than one and a half century of enmity


I can't find this in a dictionnary. If someone is reading Caesar right now, it's easier to know this then.


Thanks for your help,

Moerus.
