Infinitive as Mood

This is not specifically a Greek grammar question, I post it here because it came up in my Greek 102 class. There appears to be some difference of opinion among grammarians as to whether the infinitive is properly classed as a mood, and I was wondering if anyone here has some insight on this.

Smyth (355) lists the four "finite" moods (indicative, imperative, optative, and subjunctive) and then goes on to say that the infinitive ...

translation check

Salvete omnes,

Here are some english to latin sentences. Please let me know of any mistakes.

Aurelia was going slowly toward the inn because she wasn't wanting to spend the night there.

Aurelia lente ad cauponam ibat quod pernoctare ibi nolebat

At that very moment, however, a fat man appeared at the door of the inn.

Eo ipso tempore, tamen, obesus homo ad ianuam cauponis apparuit.

Suddenly three dogs bark fiercely and attack the Corneliuses. ...

deponents

Deponent verbs have no active spelling at all? This makes it difficult to figure out what conjugation sort they are. I can tell hortari is first conjugation. Did these verbs ever have an active spelling, and how did anyone figure out these passive verbs meant active action?

Gratias

Strange Episcopal request for Photoshop's skilled!

It is amazing given all the images available on Google that one can not find a large hairy foot.

Indeed, and this has much to do with Latin, I really require such a picture. Quite high resolution, quite hairy, sort of like a yeti/gorilla foot, with but the bottom of the ankle sort of fading out gently into the white background, and of course the crusty hairy foot.

Is any one here kind and capable ...

Ovid's pleonasm

Ars Am. 1. 93 contains a phrase which is oddly pleonastic or even tautological. Anyone cares to guess what Ovid is thinking here?

ut redit itque frequens longum formica per agmen,
granifero solitum cum vehit ore cibum,
aut ut apes saltus suos et olentia nactae
pascua per flores et thyma summa volant,
sic ruit ad celebres cultissima femina ludos;

Would like to learn the Portuguese?

Would he/she like to learn the Portuguese?
It is a derived language of Latin, for that, if you already know some Latin won't be difficult. I intend to teach gratuitously saw forum. It is a very beautiful language, and used at few countries, then, if you like languages little spoken is great for you. Are you interested?
