Seeking Loci Antiqui Aid

Hello, this is my first post after ages lurking, so here goes!

I'm working with the Loci Antiqui independently, and I was wondering if there is someone here who would check my translations. If there are translations of these passages up somewhere, that would work too, but I havent been able to find any so far.

Thanks a lot!

Hello!

Greetings! :)

I just wish to introduce myself here at Textkit:
I'm a Latin self-student working from a 5th ed. copy of Wheelock I checked out at the library- I just ordered a new one from Amazon. I got started in Latin from a Latin summer program (with teachers, using Oxford)..

BLD § 258 I Latin-English Exercise

The Romans invade the Enemy's Country

Olim pedites Romani cum equitibus velocibus in hostium urbem iter faciebant. Ubi non longe afuerunt, raperunt agricolam, qui eis viam brevem et facilem demonstravit. Iam Romani moenia alta, turris validas aliaque opera urbis videre poterant. In moenibus stabant multi principes. Principes ubi viderunt Romanos, iusserunt civis lapides aliaque tela de muris iacere. Tum milites fortes contineri a proelio non poterant et acer imperator signum tuba dari iussit. Summa vi ...

Vowel distinction (Pronunciation)

How many here make distinction in pronouncing long and short vowels

Iota- Long and Short like "I" in "intrigue"

Alpha- Long and short like "A" in perhaps "Abraham"

- If there are more than one sound then how can one distiunguish against the sounds of omicron and Eta ;

When you answer be mindful of our respective geography (this from an American living in Texas - our ears are a disaster)

Any tips on improving ...

"make every day count"

I am trying to find a way to translate this into Latin for someone else, but I am finding it difficult to find a satisfactory way of saying it. Obviously a word for "to count" is not going to carry the same meaning as in the English phrase, unless there is some very apt Latin word which I am unaware of. I had it in mind to use interest in the sense of "it matters", ...
