Translating de/

Hi everybory,

I'm a beginner in this stuff of studing Greek, so be patient with with me, ok?

It's very hard to me to translate de/ sometimes and sometimes I thought I was almost useless to translated ( I use to translate it as "But " and "and") untill I came to Jww's lesson XVIII, where, in his exemples he does not translate it!
So, Can someone tell me when should I translate de/ or ...

Wheelock Chapter 5: chief, what's happening?

So, I'm working through Wheelock on my own, and, since I'm still in the early chapters, everything is going pretty quickly (I also have a lot of time on my hands). But there is this two line poem out of chapter five that has me blinking.

Non cenat sine apro noster, Tite, Caelinianus:
bellum convivam Caelianus habet!

What is going on with "noster" here? What is this adjective modifying? It can't be modifying "apro" since ...

Favorite Greek or Latin moment in the movies

Just thought I'd throw out a fun question for Friday. :D I can't think of too many, the Latin moment that comes to mind is in the beginning of "Dead Poets Society" where some instructor is going through the declensions of agricola. Not exactly a favorite moment, just the one that comes to mind. :?

Do you have ...

Do I have this right?

Sorry to bother you people with pronoun questions again, but... I just want to make sure I have this correct. What is weird are the plural possesives/reflexive posessives. Here is the list for meus and noster:

N. meus
G. mei
D. meo
A. meum
Ab. meo

mei
meorum
meis
meos
meis

N. noster
G. nostri
D. nostro
A. nostrum
Ab. nostro

nostri
nostrorum
nostris
nostros
nostris

Nostrorum looks very odd. Is that right?? How do ...

Pharr section 150 line 7

I don't understand the form h)ge/ronto. I am quite certain it is from a)gei/rw and that it is 3rd person plural middle or passive but I don't know if it is aorist or imperfect. The aorist form is given as having and Epsilon and an Iota, and the imperfect is (usually ?) build on the present tense stem, so that means again with an Epsilon and a Iota. Is this a unusual form or am ...


Yeahh!!!

Ok, don't know if this should be in the Latin forum, but...

I made it! I didn't fail the first Latin test with this zombie Latin teacher!
7 MSS points (that's uh... well, 15 is best and anything below 4 is a fail)!!!!
Never had a mark as good as that in Latin translation (in my last translation I had 2 points (yes, a fail :cry: ...

Aorist X Perfect

Hi, Guys,

I have a serous question and I'm counting on you to help me.

The Greek grammars in my mother language (Portuguese) translate both aorist and perfect the same way - something like the English simple past - and don't make any difference between them.

JWW translates the aorist as simple past and the perfect as present perfect, as far as I know, there's a litte "aspectual" difference between these two.
This difference occurs ...

the way to learn

Reading through the old posts on this site I see that you all seem to really analyse every word you read. I've only been studying latin since august this year, but I'm trying just to read the language, be it with a dictionary in my lap. Would you recommend this way of learning latin, or is it indeed better to really analyse every word?
