I apologize to everyone

I got upset since someone replied to my question below, asking that I pay for the help.

I checked the forum rules I realized that people here, mainly are not learning on their own but are students/professors (i think), etc.

I should have explained in the topic, my request was purely personal, not for assignments, etc.

My reply was also somewhat rude. I am sorry.

Thanks to those who replied....

Sanjay

Hello

Hello to everyone,

I've found your site and I like it so much. There are a lot of good resources.
I am an Italian guy and I studied a lot of Greek and Latin when I was younger, but unfortunately I've forgotten most :(
I plan to study both languages in the next few months, so I can read some of text in original language.

Sorry in ...

Unit 1 Ex - Section I - #13


Unit 1 Ex - Section I (pg 33) - #13

#13: Cum poeta e portis in viam ambulo (ambulabam).
M&F Key: I am walking (was walking) out of the gate onto the path.

Um... I think you missed the cum poeta part of the sentence.

Unit 1 Prelim Ex - Section II B - #5


Unit 1 Prelim Ex - Section II B (pg 33) - #5
Change from singular to plural

#5: est
M&F Answer Key: estis

Estis is the plural for es (2nd person, present).
I believe it should be sunt (3rd person, present).

Unit 1 Drill - Section III - # 3, 5, 8


Unit 1 Drill - Section III (pg 32) - # 3, 5, 8
Translate into Latin.

#3: of women
M&F Answer Key: puellarum

puella = girl (vocab word actually introduced in Unit 2)
I believe it should be feminae.

#5: crown (object)
M&F Answer Key: corona

Corona would make it the subject.
Since they are asking for the object, I believe it should be the ACC, or coronam.

#8: they used to be afraid ...

Is befuddled (again)

Er...historical infinitives. I get what they do, they act as an indicative with the nominative as the subject, but translation proves a bit tricky. A&G says they should be translated as imperfect indicatives, but then goes on to translate 'ibi resistere ac propulsi' as 'there they would stand and fight.' And it also translates 'pars cedere' as 'a part gives way." Hello, present tense.

Clarification would be much appreciated.

Need help (big time) to get something translated to Latin...

Hello everyone *smiles and waves at the new people*

First some background....I paint miniatures/models. I am working on a Paladin (ie. a holy warrior) type miniature. To try something unique, I am sculpting a scroll (of sorts) to be fastened onto the miniature's shield. Since the Paladin is supposed to be the holiest of warriors, I wanted to do something different with it.

I want to put writing, but not just fake writing on it, ...

Why the present tense here?

In the Reading Matter after the exercises in d’Ooge’s L for B, at the start of ’How the Romans marched and camped’, page 214, I am confused by the following:

Exercitus qui in hostium finibus bellum gerit multis periculis circumdatus est. Quae pericula ut vitarent, Romani summam curam adhibere solebant.

Literally: An army which WAGES war in enemy territory WAS SURROUNDED by many dangers. The Romans used to take great pains to avoid such dangers. ...
