Dear A Good Latin Scholar

Dear A Good Latin Scholar:
I am having trouble translating the first paragraph in 38 Latin Stories compiled by Wheelock. The title of the work is from the gallic wars and is on page 44, Chapter 24. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it! THANKS!

Sincerely
Brian

sentences for kids...

Hi.

I'm wondering if someone can help me with standard sentences a parent would use with kids. My kids ( 6 and 3) are thrilled when they can understand a Latin sentence, and obedience is way up. Go figure...

So....
Go clean up your room
Brush your teeth.
Time for your bath
Clean up your plate.
Let's go outside.


My Latin is too basic for me to figure these out.

Thanks!

BLB, Collar & Daniell, § 22

I'm using D'Ooge's wonderful book, but am also using "The Beginner's Latin Book" by Collar and Daniell due to the wealth of exercises they provide. Can someone be so kind as to check my responses. (With exercise text so no one has to look them up).

Critics welcome. Suggestions taken. Thanks in advance.

2. Dura est via. Hard is the way.

Catullus 63

This line (49) seems to make no sense:

"patriam allocuta maestast ita voce miseriter"

for which my Oxford World's Classics translation has something like:

"thus with pitful voice she addresed her country" or something.

My problems:
1) what is maestast? It doesn't even look like a Latin ending
2) allocuta... is there an est missing here or what? That'd be the only time in the whole poem
3) isn't miseriter an adverb? How then did ...

Working out the rusty hinges...

Hello all,

I'm glad to have found this wonderful resource. As of late, I've rekindled my interest in Koine Greek, and have been going through an old textbook (An Introduction to New Testament Greek, Huber Drumwright) and was trying to work through an excersise which has stumped me. Here it is...

I get that profh/thj is Nom Sing. Subject. "Prophet."

The profh/th| is Dativ... indirect object (I'm most unsure about ...

Thanks for any help!

re: cases combining

Forum:

I imagine that students new to Classical Latin (such as myself) begin to appreciate the subtleness of how cases combine within a sentence. An example, and please confirm:

Dea Minerva formam feminae simulat et in terra ambulat.

In this sentence, "formam feminae" seems to mean "form (or shape) of a woman" hence, it being in the genitive case led by an accusative singular.

Question: Are there other cases in the singular and plural ...

`arpadso

:lol:

I am to begin the Ancient Greek episode in the near future; I want a good primer, admittedly as similar to that of D'Ooge as possible, without obviously the hic haec hoc. I want a harsh old book, but one with exercises and lively content rather than JWW.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0715612581/qid%3D1081094080/sr%3D1-3/ref%3Dsr%5F1%5F2%5F3/026-5841586-0180401

Does any one know this book? If it is bad, do you have any recommendations?

Thank you, ...

Free PDFs

http://oll.libertyfund.org/

Go to the link that says "All Titles" at the bottom of the page. There are some works by Greek and Latin authors there, but I don't know if any are in the original language. I downloaded one dialogue of Plato, and it was not in the original. I haven't had time to download any more yet, with my slow dial-up line.

I did download Dante's Divine Comedy, ...
