Homework translation check

Salvete omnes,

Could you please check over these translations? The point of this exercise was to be able to properly identify the dative case.

1. Patruus pecuniam pueris dat.

The uncle gives money to the boys.

2. Ancilla invita cauponi scelesto cibum tradit.

The unwilling slave-women hands over the food to the wicked innkeeper.

3. Omnia patri meo semper dico.

I always tell everything to my father.

4. Nihil legato principis dixit.

Luke 22:44 bloody sweat


This text is from Luke 22:44:

kai genomenoj en agwnia ektenesteron proshuxeto: kai egeneto o idrwj autou wsei qromboi aimatos katabainontes epi thn ghn

Depending on the grammar can we conclude whether the sweat really was bloody or that this is only an illustration? It seems to me that the problem is how to interpret the word wsei "as it were"

More homework help -- negatives, questions, emphasis

English to Latin translation. This time practice negation, questions and emphasis (e.g., Does Caesar have the ball?)

The lesson I'm working through introduces the basics but leaves a lot of unanswered questions, so I expect I've made a lot of mistakes here trying to do stuff the lesson didn't cover.

Mark has a sword.
Marcus gladium tenet.
Mark has a sword.
Gladium Marcus tenet.
Mark has a sword.
Tenet Marcus gladium.
Mark has a sword. ...

Satan sweating - apt translation & grammar poblems


(Please do remember English is not my native language. Dutch is.)

My class has received an assignment from our professor of Greek (for the course Encyclopedia of Classical Philology actually).
We are supposed to critically examine a few lines of text he has given us, and we have to explain why a/certain word(s) are false, or correct.

The text is Oecumenius' Commentarius in Apocalypsin. My line is 157,13-16 (VIII,62-65). It reads:
polla\ ga/r fasi ...

Translation question

I'm reading "Latin for Today 2nd Year Course" and I am having a problem with one sentence.

"Hic adulescens ita me amabat, ita verebatur ut me quasi magistro uteretur."

My lame attempt at a translation is:

This youth thus loved me, thus he feared that he didn't use me as a teacher.

Am I far off? Any help will be appreciated.

An idea

Here is an idea. There seems to be several people present that participate in the board and have a good deal of knowledge if not a great deal of knowledge concerning Greek without a lack of enthusiasm, too.

Why not make a textbook that would be ideal to begin with and advance through. This textbook could be make online collectively.

What's Love

...got to do with it got to do with it

Seriously though, there is one great unanswered question, what exactly romantic love is. Love between a boy and a girl. Please do not give long winded answers which come to various often contradictory conclusions, just summarize whether you think it to be real, a set value. How can it be though, when each situation is different and each person is different. That which one person ...
