241? really?

I see that the most users ever online is listed at 241!
(It was at +/- 35.) Is this correct? Amazing that the site did not have a meltdown.

Missing accusative?

In the sentence below:

Phoebus filium monet, sed puer magna pericula non videt.

I see why filius is in the accusative (it is the d.o. of monet) but in the second half of the sentence, puer and pericula are both nominative. Wouldn't pericula be accusative, as it is what I would think be the d.o. of videt?

Pandora's Box

In the Pandora's Box story of 38 Latin Stories, the last sentence ends:

Etiam si vita plena malorum est, spem semper habemus.

The vita here appears to be in the ablative. I don't understand quite why, other than running through all the other cases and determining that none of the other ones seem to apply.

I'm only on Ch.5 of Wheelock's and I know the ablative is covered in later chapters but I was just ...

Latin Word Order

The following are the few points of prosaic Latin word order which I can recall:

1. Main verb always at end.
2. Adjectives directly behind modified nouns.
3. Indirect objects precede direct objects.
4. Objects of prepositions follow the preposition (unless anastrophe is employed).

This leaves many questions. I'd like to know where subjects, direct and indirect objects, prepositional phrases, subordinate clauses, indirect statements, et cetera fit in.

If someone could translate the following example, ...

Latin Prose Composition - North/Hillard

Is there any particular reason why this is for Acrobat Reader only? Other PDF's can be opened by Preview on my Mac, but the ones with AR5 in the title cannot. Ofcourse AR5 refers to Acrobat Reader 5, but why is this?

mystace

anyone know what "mystace" means?

It's not in my latin dictionary or in the online one I looked at.

And I can't find Words for my new computer. :(


(ps: It's from the first page of Harrius Potter. I just started it ;)
