Ablative of place where

A sentence from Jenney:
"Hoc in loco ab animali interfectus sum."
Does the first part still translate to "in this place", despite "hoc" coming before "in"?

3rd person imperatives

Could please shed some light on 3rd person imperatives? I don't exactly know the meaning of it, and its difference to the subjunctive. Could someone also give me a paradigm on its formation (including the rare passive forms), please?

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
