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 ...

Latin "r"

I'm confused about the pronunciation of the Latin "r"-am I supposed to roll it, the way you do in French (bonjour, au revoir), or leave it short, the way you do in English (or, short), or does it matter? <br /><br />Keesa

Multiple irregular adjectives

I've gotten to irregular adjectives. Yeesh! It's quite hairy.<br /><br />How do you read a sentence with multiple irregular adjectives?<br /><br />Cëna nüllius alterïus ancillae est bona =<br /> The dinner of neither of the maids is good.<br />or<br /> No dinner of either of the maids is good.<br />

their sons and daughters

<br />I have a question about translating "their sons and daughters" in this passage (BLD Ex107 PtII Pg46) :<br /><br /> The Germans, with (their) sons and daughters, are hastening with horses and wagons.<br /> Germani cum suis filiis et suis filiis equis et carris properant.<br /><br />Well, that's how I translated it into Latin. It seems redundant to have "suis filiis" twice. It just happened that way because: their sons => suis filiis (ABL ...

properat vs maturat

What's the difference between properat and maturat? They both mean "hasten". Are they interchangeable? How do you decide which word to use?
