Latin Conversation - to speak or not to speak

5. Incolae si insulae feminas damnavissent, nautae ad terram venire non dubitavissent.

Latin Audio Poll

Some of the members here and I have been working on a audio suppliment to the Latin texts available here. We hope to have the project ready in the next month or so. We are at the point now where we are beginning to finalize the work.

This poll is meant to get a feel for how members would use such a suppliment.

This poll will run for 30 days.

Multiple verbs

Read, please:

Sententiam bonam vir habet tamen virum magistri monere debet reginae consilia demonstrare.

With four verbs in this sentence and the Roman's delight in putting any word anywhere, how will I know who is doing what?

Thank you.

Rex ero

Certain individuals in my immediate surrounding are tam pissing me off that I no longer see any option than to make things clear to them:

"When I am king, you will be first against the wall."*

Of course if I were to state this as such I would be shunned for the rest of my life (miser kasper, desinas ineptire, etc.) and die old, tired and lonely. Hence my desire to say it in latin. ...
