Corneli Nepotis M. Cato

http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/nepos/nepos.cat.shtml<br /><br />I'm not sure how magni fits in with this sentence:<br /><br />Inde ut rediit, castra secutus est C. Claudii Neronis, magnique opera eius existimata est in proelio apud Senam, quo cecidit Hasdrubal, frater Hannibalis.<br /><br />Shouldn't it be magna to agree with opera? Or are we supposed to another opera to go with magni and translate as "... his deeds in the battle of Sena ... are considered to be(the deeds) of a ...

Vocative - w/ or w/o Ö

<br />Is this assumption correct?<br /><br />If you're using the Vocative to refer to a person, the "Ö" is implied?<br /><br />And if you're using the Vocative to refer to a non-human, then you have to include "Ö"?<br /><br />Just wondering... since I saw the following in one of the exercises and came to the above conclusion.<br /><br /> Male serve = O bad servant<br /> Ö clärum oppidum = O famous town

Typing those Latin long vowels

Am I beating a dead horse?<br /><br />I'm still trying to figure out how to type those Latin vowels with the horizontal line over them. I don't see corresponding ALT+xxxx codes for these vowels in Windows Character Map.<br /><br />I found ALT codes on this website, but can't seem to get them to work. Any ideas?<br /><br />http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/international/bylanguage/latin.html<br /><br /><br />Capital A ALT+0256<br />Captial E ALT+0274<br />Capital I ALT+0298<br />Capital O ALT+0332<br />Capital U ALT+0362<br ...

Paradigm shift

When I was at school, declensions all went <br />Nominative<br />Vocative<br />Accusative<br />Genitive<br />Dative<br />Ablative (for Latin)<br /><br />but now they've been changed to:<br />Nominative<br />Genitive<br />Dative<br />Accusative<br />(Ablative)<br />Vocative<br /><br />Why? It's very confusing.

Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASI ... 93-6443825<br /><br />Hmm, I'm a little dubious about this. I wonder how well it translates and handles things like vernacular and new vocabulary. Also, JKR's Latin puns will become a little obvious (Prof. Lupin might as well be renamed Mr. Warewolf) and pointing a wand at a locked door and shouting 'aperto' is far more dramatic that simply 'open'. Any thoughts?

Adjective endings

Why are there three endings for adjectives in meus glossiarium latinus?<br /><br />I can look up the word "dictionary" on the English side and get "glossiarium". But I can't find "glossiarium" on the Latin side of the dictionary. Why is this? <br />
