De artibus auctoribusque

Nemo tantum artem nocet quantum ipse poeta pictorve, etc.

Nuper librum “A Rebours” legi, quem Joris Karl Huysmans scripsit. Prima pagina huius libri editionis habet scriptoris picturam. Nunc, librum verum valde diligo, magnus est. Pictura tamen scriptoris illum sub cruce stantem ostendit male spectantem.

Iterum nuper (moventem) picturam de “Elvis Presley(is)” vita vidi. Nonnumquam certam musicam illius diligo, sed in pictura erat pedicator. (ignoscite linguae Gallicae).

Itaque bis in brevo tempore de auctoribus cognoscendo artem ...

amisine librum aut plurem temporis accepi?

On saturday, I lost my copy of Wheelock's. I didn't realize how much I used it, or had it with me, but on sunday I was suddenly faced with a whole lot of time on my hands with nothing to do.

fut. pass. imp?

Hi everyone,

I don't know if this has already been brought up, but is there a future passive imperative? It's really hard to find any info on this (let alone the future imperative). Also, how do you use the 3rd person of future imperatives (active and passive)? Is it sort of like a hortatory subjunctive?

Case: A matter of form or function?

After A.T. Robertson studied Indo-European linguistics, and Sanskrit in particular, he became convinced that case was a matter of function and not of form. Thus, he broke ranks with the tradition of classical Greek grammarians in identifying eight cases (if the vocative is assumed to be a true case) instead of five. His influence continued on among some of the New Testament grammarians, though the classical grammarians--then and still now--largely ingnored the results of his ...
