I think I'm abandoning my learning of Latin

I've come to the point where after a year a Latin, I feel like wasting my time. My teacher really hasn't inspired me to want to learn the language. She almost seems kind of neutral about it.

Computer based vocabularies

Hello there,

Has anyone had experience of building computer mediated vocabularies?

Regards,

James Christie

homework help

magister usus omnium rerum est optimus.
nom-s, ?, gen-p, gen-p, "est", nom-s

There's also "magister usus omnium est rerum optimus" in the text (different word-order).

"magistri usus omnium rerum est optimus" (the teacher's experience of all things is the best) makes sense ...

Dare macron?

Salvete omnes,

Why doesn't the verb dare - to give not have a macron over the "a"? Does it have something to do with the word order? Does this occur in other conjugations as well?

thanks,
Deccius
