Latin phonology and pronunciation

hi guys, i've noticed a few posts and discussions recently about latin phonology and pronunciation. i think a few people have said it's quite easy: i spent quite a while pulling together resources on this, just to get to a basic level, and i had to try to work out conventions for myself, e.g. the accentuation of monosyllables: i didn't find it easy.

i made a 1-page latin phonology cheat-sheet, which i've just pdf-ed and ...

Pronouns as Subjects

I'm confused about a sentence from Jenney's First Year Latin:

The people whose courage you praised are now citizens.
Can that be "Qui virtuem laudavisti nunc cives sunt" (letting qui imply people, since it's masculine plural, like substantives do)
Or is it necessary to add "Ei" before the qui, making it "Ei qui virtuem laudavisti..."
Either? Neither?
Thanks :D

Reading Sallust

On the difficulty scale, where would you place Sallust's Bellum Jugurthinum?

I am at an intermediate reading level, and thinking about taking a course on this work of Sallust's. But I don't want to be overwhelmed.

Thanks in advance!

Latin Via Ovid and Henle Latin

Hi everyone,

I looked through an online sample of Latin Via Ovid.
I am currently going through D'ooge's text, but thought Latin
Via Ovid might make for good "reading practice." Does anyone
have any thoughts on this text? I would also like opinions of the
Henle Latin texts, if anyone here has used them.
thanks,
Lisa

I have gender issues.

Yeah, you heard me...

What is the deal with words that are masculine and feminine? Such as adulēscēns?
How do you differentiate gender? With meus/mea?
And would this sentence make sense grammatically, even if the "colleague" were a guy?:
Collēga meus cohortem meam est.
My colleague is my bodyguard.
VALETE BENE!

six questions

SALVETE OMNES!

1) How would I pronounce "huius"? I'm thinking "hwee-oos"?

Making sentences here, how did I do:

2) Nōmen huius mōris perfidia est. = The name of this custom is treachery.
3) Virtūtēs hominum mōrēs fēminārum sunt. = The virtues of men are the habits of women.
4) Nūllae hae uxōrēs tempus habent. = None of these wives have time.
5) Ea nōmīnis egēbat. = She was in need of a name.
6) Rōmānī ...

How much vocabulary does one need?

SALVETE OMNES.

What do you think is a sufficient number of words in order to understand Latin?
I've been making flash cards for a week, with the nominative on one side and the declensions on the other. I've memorized 70 so far.

VALETE BENE.

is proven!

SALVETE OMNES.
First, thanks to everyone who answers my posts.
Second, I need the Latin for "is proven!".
I'm trying to write "The chastity of Diana is proven!"
This is all I've come up with:
Castitātem Dianae vēra est.

MVLTAS GRATIAS ET VALETE BENE.
