Pronunciation Help: sensus plenior

Could someone please help me with the pronunciation of "sensus plenior?" I know the first word is pronounced like the English "census," but I am not sure of the pronunciation of "plenior."

I do NOT need translation help, only pronunciation assistance.

Many thanks, and happy new year!

Alternate Beginnings for the Illiad

I thought these were rather interesting:

Mou/saj a0ei/dw kai\ 0Apo/llwna kluto/tocon


The second is:

e0/spete nu=n moi, Mou=sai, 0Olu/mpia dw/mat' e0/ousai,
o9/ppoj dh\ mh=nij te xo/laj q' e9/le Phlei/wna
Lhtou=j t' a0glao\n ui9o/n. o0 ga\r basilh=i xolwqei\j

Anyone have any ideas?

"Let us sleep"

Hi and hello!

I'm working on this essay of mine, and I've come to the part where I'm trying to translate the words in the subject into latin. But I'm really lost when it comes to what declination to use. I tried to translate it, and ended up with "dormeamus", but that must be sooo wrong. I would appreciate any sort of assistance I could get=)

stupid infinitives

hi. im wondering when exactly to use the words posse and esse. I believe those are the infinitives of "to be" and "able to be". but im not sure when to use them. i went through the all of the exercises in the wheelocks chapter where they are introduced, without once using those two words, while im sure i should have. so when would posse and esse be used?

agreement of nouns/adjectives

With nouns whose gender is not usual for their declension, do their modifying adjectives follow the gender, or the declensioal paradigm? I'm thinking specifically of certain first declension nouns that are masculine rather than feminine (nauta, agricola).

That is, to say 'of the great sailor', would it be

de magna nauta
or
de magno nauta
