Saluete! I've been wondering about which case to use with the measuring word in a sentence like, "the rampart is five feet tall," uallum quinque pedes altum est. Now, those "pedes," are those in the accusative or the nominative? I thought for sure measure words were in the accusative until I read, decem anni longus est tempus, where the "anni" clearly are in the nominative. Is it different with the measurement of time, or is ...

Roman Dates

Is there a way to convert our dates into a Roman format? I am specifically trying to convert October 19th, 2004 into a more Roman format, though I would obviously not be naming the year by the consuls.

I found this website, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.

saluete omnes

A forum member recently sent me a PM and requested that I translate a sentence into Latin for him. I was only happy to oblige, but as it was for a tattoo I thought we'd better get other opinions before settling the matter. The sentence is:

"The future is uncertain and the end is always near."

I suggested this translation:

futura incerta exitus semper imminens

I also said, that he could insert an ...

Question on a sentence


Could someone tell me what "immemores" modifies in this sentence?

Immemores multa in villa relinquent, ubi ad urbem redibunt.

This is my translation (I don't think it is correct):

They will leave behind many forgetful things in the country house, when they will return to the city

At first I thought it "immemores" modified "they", but i wasn't sure how to translate that.

Does any one have a link, or a list of what the names of the consonants are?

For example in Greek A=Alpha, B=Beta, etc.

Or do they simply pronounce them like we do in English??

Long Vowels vs. Short Vowels

Ok....I've read the first chapter in D'Ooge, and I have a question about the vowel O and U in both long and short varieties.

When you pronounce these long and short is there a noticable difference?

The examples D'Ooge gives to me don't sound very different. The only difference that I can tell is that with short O and U I proncounce the vowel a little farther back in my throat. Is this right??

Thanks ...
