Where are you up to in D'Ooge?

If you are working through D'Ooge's book, how far have you progressed? <br /><br />I myself am up to lesson XXV, the future active indicative of rego and audio, which means that I have finished about a quarter of the book.<br /><br />Also, I'm wondering how D'Ooge's work compares to a typical university course. Does the book correspond to a month, a semester, a year, or can such comparisons not be made?

How do you adjectivize a verb?

<br />Let's say I want to say "drenched".<br /><br />I know the verb for "to drench" is madefacere.<br /><br />How would I turn this verb, madefacere, into an adjective?<br /><br /><br />For example, the French verb is tremper. One could adjectivize this by making it trempé(e). Is it possible to do something similar in Latin?<br /><br />

uvidus vs madidus

What's the difference between these two words which both mean "wet"?<br /><br />Is it better to describe the soggy cat as feles uvida or feles madida?<br />

Phaethon’s friend is doubtful about the rumour of divine origin: “You are not the son of a god. You do not have the gifts of the gods. Your story is not true.” Great anger moves Phaethon: “I am the son of a god! Phoebus, give proof!" calls Phaethon. Phoebus ...
