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 ...

Keeping on topic

<br />Jeff, our moderator, wrote<br /><br />While there are many excellent educational threads in the forums that achieve this goal, there have been many posts on both the Greek and Latin boards that have steered off-topic of the original question or discussion.<br /><br />Please remember to keep your posts and discussions relevant to the original subject in the thread.<br /><br />Magistra says<br /><br />Many times we have gone on to other topics.

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)

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 ...
