Pro nautis

multi nuper nautas maledixerunt. nautis innocentibus, nunc mihi defendendi sunt, ne vestra mendacia vigescant. quo usque tandem abutemini patientia mea? numquam--numquam!--alicubi nautae parvos pueros vulnerabant. bonorum virorum obtrectatores estis. nautaene esse non potestis? invidetisne igitur his? ego haec intellego, nautae vident. vos tamen vivitis. vivitis? vos etiam in hoc forum venitis! fugite, mendaces fungi. heu! fleo.

BLD 294

The Sentence in question is:
Ille fortis Germanorum dux suos convocavit et hoc modo animos eorim confirmavit.

I have managed to hack out:
At that fortress of the Germans the leader gathered his men and confirmed their spirits with this method (or plan).

Is this a feasible translation and can suos mean "his men"?

Verb/translation question

In my Latin text book, I have been learning about verbs. However, I came across a verb (?) form ending that I am not familiar with:

aedifcatAE

This word was used in the following sentence:

Code: Select all
  _                _             _
Quorum arte aedificatae sunt urbes?

I was always under the impression that the AE ending was for nouns only. Could you please explain?

Aedificat means "build," so I also theorized that aedifcatAE could be a ...

regarding movies employing the Latin language

Many years ago I saw a movie that was scripted completely in Latin, but I cannot recall the movie title. In fact, it was so long ago that I can't even remember what it was about. It must have been made in the 1970s, I'm pretty sure I saw it during that decade.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows of any database listing movies that use Latin in the dialog. I'm interested in pedagogical ...

Argh... lost book

Last week I saw a fantastic old little book which listed all the possible endings for parts of the Greek verb and parsed them. Great I thought. I'll buy it next time when I have some money on me.

This week is was gone! NOooooooooooooooooooooo!

Does anyone know what this book is called so I can track it down?

Stephen Duffy, The Way to Greek and Xenophon's Anabasis

Last week I came across a used book from the 1950s which is a beginners edition of Anabasis, prepared by Stephen V. Duffy.

He also wrote a Greek language textbook, called "The Way to Greek." I've seen a copy, and it's quite a nice book. I'd like to get a copy for myself, but haven't seen one for sale. Any ideas?

'Quod'

Caesar Gallic War I.3

"In eo itinere, persuadet Castico, Sequano, cuius pater regnum in Sequanis moltos annos obtinuerat et a senatu 'populi Romani amicus' appellatus erat, ut regnum in civititate sua occuparet quod pater habuerat"
