Rusty Latin - Please help me review this

Hello!

Tricky Sentence! I need Help!

This is probably simple for some of you guys, but it is only my 3rd week of Latin 1 in school. I can't translate the following sentence correctly from a reading in my book...

Propter perículum sacra deórum ad portam portábámus, et Anchísae dabámus.

I am very unsure if this is the correct translation...

On account of danger, we were carrying the sacreds of the gods toward the gate, and we were giving to Anchísés. ...

peira/zwmen gra/phein e)n th^ E(llh/nika A)rchei/a



I was thinking that it might be fun to start a topic of writing to one another in Classical Greek (it seems like all of these have been Latin) . . . So if anyone wishes, they can respond.

? on accent

Quick question. In the Woodhouse dictionary, the accent on the word number is on the antepenult (a)/riqmoj); however, in the Little LS, the accent is on the ultima. Which one is correct? Are they both correct?

Thanks

Comparison between suus and is (Exercise 117)

I was wondering if someone can straighten me out on some word ordering.

Compare the following two sentences (#5 and #7 from ex. 117)

English: "Another woman is calling her chickens (not her own)".
Key's translation: Alia femina eius gallinas vocat.

English: "The Gaul praises his arms (not his own)".
Key's translation: Gallus arma eius laudat.

In both cases we are using the non-reflexive possesive eius. However, in #5 the key places eius before the ...

Hebrew sites?

I know this is off-topic, but I was wondering if any of you know sites like Textkit that deal with OT Hebrew. Any help would be much appreciated!

Toughest Greek you've read....?

I thought I'd ask y'all what the toughest Greek you've ever read is? For me...if would probably have to be Sophopcles (O.R.) or Philo. As far as the New Testament goes....I just read through Hebrews and it kicked my butt fairly well....Lukan stuff isn't nearly as hard as people make it out to be (IMHO), and James can be a bit thick.

Well......how about you??

Looking for languages with nasal vowels

I’d like to compare French nasal vowels with another (living) language that has nasal vowels, but I don’t know of any. Old French has quite a few more nasal vowels than modern French. I’d like to hear what those ancient nasal vowels sounded like. Yes, you could use the theory of just nasalizing the regular vowels to get nasal vowels but.... I’m having some difficulties with Modern French and that approach.

The IPA transcription is ...
