BLD §§ 201-205 Perfect Passive Participle

I'm having a mental block with how to "inflect" the perfect passive.

1. Is this called inflection because of the dual nature of the form? As opposed to decline or conjugate?

2. As I understand the construction of a compound case, you would decline the base like bonus, -a, -um. However, I can't quite see where you would use anything but a one case: nominative. It must agree with the word it modifies in gender, ...

lacrima et annus

hey,

I'm looking for possible synonyms for lacrima and annus.

Specifically, I want to find a way to make the ablative plural of "tears" rhyme with the ablative singular of "year". So right now I have anno and lacrimis, which of course do not rhyme.

Any ideas?

I wanted to check Perseus but it appears to be down right now...

Latin or Greek?

Hello, I was under the impression I wanted to learn latin. And when I searched on google for information textkit was the first to come up and seems to hold the possibility of being an excellent resource.

However I was perplexed at the first page offering ancient greek lessons.

Modern to Ancient Greek et alii

I know nearly nothing about Modern Greek, and I have been wondering if one can make a Modern Greek word (say τηλεόραση) conform to the grammatical structure (and dignity) of Attic. I hear that Modern Greek still has a case system.

Oh, and could someone give me a definitive character map of SP Ionic, please.

Grand Finale

I am nearing the completion of my Latin studies in school for this year, but as I am self taught I have no available form of final test. I have worked through the first and second part of D'Ooge and am seeking a reasonably comprehensive Latin to English translation test.

Please post any suggestions on how to find/make a Latin final.

P.S. the advisor correcting any test doesn't know much Latin so an answer key ...
