grammar (accusative sentence)

Forum:

I have a grammatical question relating to the three following sentences.

Note:
--The nominative is italicized.
--The accusative is bold.


Sentences:

1. Arachne est puella. Est puella perita in lana. Picturas pulchras in textili format.

2. Nymphae picturas puellae amant et puellam laudant. Deam quoque laudant et clamant, "Quis est magistra tibi?"

3. Iuppiter est deus. Deus Iuppiter in Olympo habitat. Olim terram Phoeniciam spectat. Puellam Europam spectat et amat. Deus puellam desiderat.


Question: ...

in

this morning I was reading my greek-latin nt and noticed something interesting. where greek uses two different prepositions, eis and en, latin uses only one, in. So in 1 Peter 1:2 we have:

en agiasmw pneumatoj, eij upakohn kai rantismon aimatoj ihsou xristou

and

in sanctificationem Spiritus, in obedientiam, et aspersionem sanguinis Iesu Christi

with "in" functioning in place of both "en" and "eis". This causes me some distress because I know the semantic difference ...

Palm Pilot Latin Grammar Books

I don't know if this will be of interest to anyone, but I wanted a way to have at least one good grammar book available for reference on my Palm Pilot. I also wanted the ability to edit the text to add my own references. This meant that just downloading the pdf version would not be helpful. I ended up running the Allen and Greenough book through a very sophisticated OCR application and turning it ...

re: confirm translation (interrogative)

Forum:

Rather than typing the whole story, or briefly stating the context, here is the line for translation:

Line: Quid clamant nymphae?

Translation(?): What did the nymphs praise?

In general, I have not had a problem understanding interrogatives in Latin. This one however I am not sure of.

Caeruleus

Voice records of pronuniciation in latin

HI, i'm new to latin and i learn from books.

For this reason I cannot be sure that my pronunciation is correct.
If anyone has voice records, links to voice records or anything of that sort that contain latin text reading (preferably a reading of the pronunciation chapter of a latin grammer book...) please tell me about it...

Thanks in advance,
Shahar.

principle parts

Are there any sort of patterns for the 3rd and 4th principal parts of the 2nd, 3rd, 3rd io conjugations?

laudo, laudare, laudavi, laudatum - 1st conjuation verbs all follow this model. Is there anything to keep in mind for 2nd, 3rd, 3rd io?

Or do you just have to memorize each principal part set for each and every verb?

Thanks,
Robbie Moran

A Quick Translation Attempt

I'm trying to translate this into Latin:

"Since that day when Marius the Great defeated the Dragon of Ravenna, its spirit has ever protected our family."

Is this correct?

Ab die ipso ubi Marius Magnus Serpentum Ravennae vicerat, eius spiritus familiam nostram semper protexit.

Are there other, perhaps better ways to say "since"? or clearer word orders?
