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)

Sometime before the next Ice Age...

<br />I'm trying to translate this sentence from English to Latin, but unfortunately I don't know enough Latin to do so. This is what I have come up with so far:<br /><br /> Aliquando ante saeculum glaciei et<br /> ante totas in ordine solari in linea regunt ...<br /> mutare placeres meum nomen numeri telephoni in <the new name>.<br /> Gracias.<br /><br />Does it make any sense? Am I on the right track? What should ...

BLD Ex117 Pg49 Is Ea Id

<br />I'm working on the Demonstrative Is, Ea, and Id and the related Personal Pronouns. Boy is this a toughie! I don't see any sort of "pattern" in the declension! Is there a trick to memorizing these?<br /><br />BLD mentions options for some. For example: ei or ii; eis or iis. Then he has a note below which reads "In the plural the forms with two i's are preferred". If that is the case, why ...

Per Aroua Ad Astra

<br />I caught the beginning of an episode of "Buck Rogers", an old SciFi program, where you see a spaceship called Searcher. The name of the ship is on the outside, and directly beneath it, I noticed the words "per aroua ad astra" and thought it looked very much like Latin. Well I tried working it out:<br /><br />er = through<br />ad = to<br />astra = stars (ACC PL of astrum)<br /><br />I couldn't figure ...
