help for motto

Last summer I started to teach myself Latin using Wheelock's and was doing quite well until school started again in August, at which time I then had no time to study at all. Hopefully I can begin again this summer.

I have a friend who knows about my earnest attempt to teach myself Latin and she occasionally will come to me with a question about basic Latin. Mostly it is something I could just look ...

Homeric Haikus

Here's a challenge for aedoi: Finding small poems within Homer's lines, small fragments that could stand by themselves as a poem and condense "everything that's good about Homer's poetry". (I'm starting to find a bit lame the recitation of the first lines of Book 1, especially if you're not intending to get to the end.)

I'll start with some lines chosen by Benner: Θ 555-565.

As when in heaven the stars about the moon
Look ...

nukta poneontos

Today I was too sleepy(due to a series of late night works) but too busy to take a nap and my head was about to blow up. So I took three cups of coffee from the vending machine and put them in my mug. I got two such shots of coffee today, and frequent dose of caffeine. Now the effect of the coffee's going out. And it's two in the morning. I'm going home. Just ...

Ch. 32

In the back of the book exercises, Ch.32, #19:

1. Tyrannus cives suos ita male opprimebat ut semper liberi esse vellent.

The tyrant was oppressing his own citizens so badly that they wished to be free.

My question is, why does it use ita and not tam?

2. Ch. 32 Practice & Review #2

Maxime rogavimus quantum auxilium septem feminae adferrent et utrum dubitarent an mox adiuvarent.

Especially we asked how much help the seven ...

order of wording & translation of a phrase into english

I've done some research on my own trying to come up with a latin version of a phrase, and knowing the word structure of latin I think I came up with the proper words and word ordering, but am not 100% sure.

In English, the phrase is:
Judicial Tyranny must be destroyed

In Latin, as near as I could come up with, it's:
dominatus iudicialis delenda est

I'm not sure if it should be dominatus ...

I have a little problem.I`ve come accross one sentence in Cicero`s text Tusculanae Disputationes and I`m not sure would sentence

Traditum est Homerum caecum fuisse
