North and Hillard's Latin Composition preliminary exercices

Hello to all,
I downloaded North and Hillard's Latin Composition book and I began doing the preliminary exercices. I realized later that there is no key for those exercices (or I am too dumb to find it). Could someone help me please? This is my first attempt to translate into Latin. :oops:

Exercice A

1. Ager bono rege imperatus erat.
2. Miles sagitta interfectus erat.
3. Puer ...

Vocabulary Master

My favorite PC flash-card program is called Vocabulary Master (click to download) and is free from Transparent Language.

I've used it teaching junior high and high school, in Latin and Spanish, and used it myself to study when I was in college. Strangely addictive.

Anyone else used it?

How/why do people pronuance Caesar

Simple question, I am assuming that Caesar is pronounced as in Ky-aesar. But generally people in films, TV, media or should I group them as popular culture say it as Se-aesar.

Where/when did the pronounciation go so 'wide' or the marker like this?

Or have I get it all wrong?

thanks

Oxford latin Dictionary

Hello people, I was wondering if anyone has ever come across the oxford latin dictionary. I'm talking about the version that costs ~$200!

Is it worth the price?

My goal is to learn the basics in the short term so I can read and speak 'average' latin material , but for the long term so I can play around with the language itself.

thanks

Dative of possession

Good day Latin scholars and enthusiasts,

I am a Latin novice - and that's giving me a lot of credit - who would like anyone's assistance with the Dative of possession. Specifically, in contrast to the phrase "Soli Deo gloria" - To God alone the glory, I would like to add - "the shame is mine."

Now apparently the dative of possession places accent on the MINE part of the possession, which is fitting, but ...

Use of possessive

Is there a definite rule about the use of "suus" Vs. "eius/eorum"? I must admit that these possessives confuse me somewhat. Let me give you an example.

Is it better to say:

Puellam ad litus adhibui ut suam pulchram faciem mirarer.

Or

Puellam ad litus adhibui ut eius pulchram faciem mirarer?

ablative use confusion

I'm translating Hyginus' Fabulae and I've come across an ablative use that's giving me trouble:

Hi propter solitudinem cum vivere non possent, petiverunt ab Iove, ut aut homines daret aut eos pari calamitate adficeret.

It's the final "calamitate" that's giving me the problem. I think. So far I've gotten something like:

"Because they could not live in solitude, they begged Jove so that he either gave people or gave them the power to produce ...
