MYTHOLOGY IN LATIN

<br /><br />hello,<br /><br />I am from Turkey. I studied economics and I was too curious about Latin that I took it as selective from the archeology department for several terms. <br /><br />What I am wondering is this: when I was studying it we were given a lot of greek mythology samples to translate into english..

Which Beginners Book from Textkit?

<br />I just noticed something about the site. <br /><br />If you click on Learn Latin (http://www.textkit.com/latin_grammar.php), it takes you to the main page enumerating downloadable books, categorized by "grammars" or "readers". <br /><br />Here's what I noticed... the Latin Grammars (http://www.textkit.com/latin-grammar.php) link on that page. It takes you to another page which helps you choose a book. There are two books listed as beginner level, and one as ...

Declension

I was wondering...when you take a verb and write out the conjugations, you "conjugate the verb." When you write out the declensions of a Latin noun, would you say that you "declined the noun"? (And if it's all the same with you, I'd prefer to accept it... ;)) <br /><br />Keesa

Adjective agreement

<br />So far in my exercises, the speaker "I" have been male. So "I am happy" is aeger sum.<br /><br />Does the adjective change if the speaker is female?<br /><br />A man says, "aeger sum."<br /><br />A woman says, "aegra sum." ???<br /><br />

Daphne

How should Daphne be declined?<br /><br />I have the following clause in my latin software: <br />"Bracchia Daphnes in ramos crescunt" and it is translated "Daphne's arms grow into branches".<br /><br />But if it is possessive, shouldn't it be also genitive? And isn't es an odd ending for a genitive? (I can't find any samples of a genitive ending in es in Wheelock)
