Tintinnabulum tinnitus est

Hi, I'm attempting to translate "the bell has rung" into latin. Using my rusty school latin, I think this should be "tintinnabulum tinnitus est". Can anyone tell me, am I correct?

Goodwin's Greek Grammar

Just aquired this b/c it was interesting and cheap. I've got a 1951 MacMillan edition.

Any particular strenghts/weakness/caveats for this book? So far it seems to lack any mention of abluat (e.g. when dicussing leipw/elipon style verbs)

Longum iter est per praecepta, breve et efficax per exempla.

I wanted to see if ...
