Is the locative tense only used with names of cities, towns, small islands, and with the three words, humus, rus, and domus? Are there any more?

Why is the subjunctive present in the second clause?

Let me start by saying that the Romans used the subjunctive atrociously, promiscuously, and atrociously promiscously. Now, with that having been said, why in the trash is the subjunctive used in the second clause of the following sentence?<br /><br />Si cvi libri Ciceronis placent, ille sciat se profecisse.<br />-Marcus Fabius Quintilianus <br /><br />That man knows himself to have progressed, if to whom the books of Cicero are a delight.<br /><br /> ...

Promote Latin

http://www.promotelatin.org/camwscpledu ... #materials<br /><br />This is more for teachers but learners will also find much value.
