Stress and Length

I've been reading latin verse for a while, and I managed to read dactylic hexameter - I suppose - quite acceptable, (at least I always get the fifth foot right...), but I still don't see how the length connects with the stress in latin verse. For instance:

Aeneid I.i - I should say(correct me if I am wrong, please) :

How am I doing?

I have a problem memorizing the many rules. OK, I was never that great for memorizing Subject, Predicate, etc., in English or Spanish, so what makes me think I will in Latin? :oops:

BTW, I am not giving up. :)

John is a great programmer.

Tintinnabulum tinnitus est

Hi, I'm attempting to translate "the bell has rung" into latin. Using my rusty school latin, I think this should be "tintinnabulum tinnitus est". Can anyone tell me, am I correct?

Goodwin's Greek Grammar

Just aquired this b/c it was interesting and cheap. I've got a 1951 MacMillan edition.

Any particular strenghts/weakness/caveats for this book? So far it seems to lack any mention of abluat (e.g. when dicussing leipw/elipon style verbs)
