Ablative of place where

A sentence from Jenney:
"Hoc in loco ab animali interfectus sum."
Does the first part still translate to "in this place", despite "hoc" coming before "in"?

BLD 249

I have for the third time come across "summo terrore commoti" and I have narrowed the translation to "filled with utmost terror" but this never fits well into the whole sentence being:

Hostes ubi pontem quem Romani fecerant viderunt, summo terrore commoti, sine more fugam parare inceperunt.

Any suggestions on a smoother English translation of the phrase would be greatly appreciated.

Groton and May Early Inquiry

Greetings,

I think I've managed to reason out a solution to my own question - but I'm posting here in a search for confirmation - just in case.

After working very hard to ensure that I truly understand my first two chapters of Wheelock, I dove into the first of 38 Latin Stories. While understanding the tale was simple - I wanted to be sure that I was really grasping why the words meant what ...

Groton and May Help

Hey, Im new to textkit and latin in general and just started a class about 3 months ago. I was wondering if anyone had a translation for Groton and May's 38 latin Stories for chapter 21. This is the story about the Return of the Golden Age. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

3rd person imperatives

Could please shed some light on 3rd person imperatives? I don't exactly know the meaning of it, and its difference to the subjunctive. Could someone also give me a paradigm on its formation (including the rare passive forms), please?

BLD: §145 The Dative with Adjectives

I'm having a problem with 3:

"Diana will destroy those hostile to latona."
Key: Diana inimicos Latonae delebit.
Tim: Diana eos inimicae Latonae delebit.

When I first checked this I was surprised at how far I was from the key. When this happens I usually spend some time reviewing the material until I have a full explaination. But in this case I am having a cascade of questions and I'm getting a bit boloxed up. ...

Other books relating to classics

I love everything on Textkit, but as a suggestion for new material, what about some textbooks on classical language related subjects? Book discussing various Greek and Latin authors, political situations, use of language by Caesar, Cicero etc., ancient history. It's a big help when reading ancient authors to know something about their context and what was going on at the time they were writing. I have just bought another swag of old books (I think ...
