Latin translation in math

In a calculus course I came across a latin phrase that puzzelled me.
The phrase was "omnia linae" and was translated as all lines. The context of the phrase fits well for the translation of the feminine noun linea (geometric line, perpendicular) and I know that omnis is a third declension adjective. Shouldn't the phrase be either "omnia lina" or "omnes linae"? :?

Help:Latin quotes combined with problem of German.

Kant wrote in his 'Der Streit der Fakutitaeten/Eigentuemlichkeit der medizinischen Fakultaet (page A23)', that government concerns itself with the medical faculty, in order that "...zweitens, dass es keine Afteraezte gebe (kein ius impune occidendi, nach dem Grundsatz: fiat experimentum in corpore vili)".

I can not catch the meaning of this sentence.
First, about Latin:
ius impune occidendi and fiat experimentum in corpore vili
Where are they from?

Second, about the whole sentence. Does it mean: ...

aedes (aedis), is?

SALVETE OMNES!
I'm a bit confused over this entry:
aedēs (aedis), is, f., temple

1) Why is aedis within parenthesis? Is it the genitive declension?
2) Am I declining this correctly?
aedēs
aedis
aedī
aedem
aede

aedēs

aedibus
aedēs
aedibus
I hate Latin dictionaries...

Latin for the Brave

Salute!

For some several weeks, I have immersed myself in the study of Latin verse, namely Catullus. I have through this study practiced a certain learning approach that I would like to share, for it has been successful and will to some, speak.

I assume you are smart enough and passionate enough to study Latin (or Greek, or any language) on your own; therefore, the methods used to teach to those who have to be ...

Shifty infinitive tenses. argh

The rules don't really make much sense in indirect statements. There are three translations that don't make sense to me.

The present infinitive is supposed to be in the same time as the main verb, but in Wheelock's book, it seems to retain the present tense when the main verb is in the future tense.

Dicent eum iuvare eam.

If I follow the rule strictly, this sentence is supposed to be translated as: They will ...

Crazy latin translations - (is this even Latin??)

The company I work for was recently given a demonstration program from a major software company to test. It is an international portal, so employees from all over the world can get common news, etc. With it being a multinational corporation it is not uncommon for the designers to take artistic licence with the demos, and this time the demo news items were in (what looks like) Latin.
It isn't particularly important, but my boss ...

Aeneid vocabulary

Salvete,
I am preparing for the AP Vergil exam, and my teacher is worried because, well, I've been slacking a bit this year due to other AP and college level classes, whatever. I believe my weakest point is my vocabulary. I get to a word I don't know, and I get stuck and have a real problem moving beyond it.

So, if anyone has suggestions on lists of vocab I can look at and work ...
