Help on a project of mine

Yesterday as a joke my Latin teacher remarked how nice it would be if the paper put out several articles in Latin every year. Now she wasn't being serious at all (we had been discussing Harrius Potter and the like just prior to this) but I thought what if this could actually occur.

However, I am on Chapter 7 of Wheelock and thus totally inable to translate an article into Latin.

If anyone would like ...

On Philosophy (from 'Altruism')

Hi all,<br /><br />I''m going to come across as the curmudgeon, but I am shocked at how far philosophic knowledge has fallen!<br /><br />A couple of points:<br /><br />(1) Philosophy is most definitely concerned with what is -- that is Ontology/Metaphysics -- the science or study of being as being;<br /><br />(2) Utilitarianism is John Stuart Mill<br /><br />Incidentally, two works that I very strongly recommend these days for those trying to grasp what has ...

Sed, o Atreu, prompter tua magna vitia filii tui magnas poenas dabunt. In animis filorum tuorum manebit tua culpa antiqua; erit perpetua.

I have translated it as:

But, O Atreus, because of your great crimes your sons will pay a great penalty. Your ancient blame will remain in the souls of your sons; it will ...

new member and content exam question

salve socii!

I'm new here and new to Latin, though I must admit to being an addict. I'm a double major in Classics and Secondary Education, and studying so that hopefully I'll be able to pass the Illinois Content Exam in Latin. I would be extremely grateful to anyone if they could give me advise on surviving this task. I'm also curious what textbooks are being used in high school Latin classes.

thanks

Unusual perfect tense ending

The first word in Book II of Virgil's Aenead is "Conticuere". The entry in "Words" is as follows:

conticesco, conticescere, conticui, - V INTRANS
conticisco, conticiscere, conticui, - V INTRANS
cease to talk, fall silent, lapse into silence; cease to function, become idle

I have not seen this ending used for the 3rd person plural perfect tense before, wouldn't it normally be "conticuerunt"? I almost took ...
