M&F Unit 1 Pg35 #19

<br />I haven't made much progress with Latin these last two weeks so I only have one small question. I couldn't work out #19 on Pg35 of M&F. The second part of the sentence boggles me with it's use of the DAT or ABL. After much revision, this is what I've come up with:<br /><br />Feminae est forma, fama nautae; feminis est forma, fama nautis.<br /><br />Beauty is women, report/opinion of the sailors; beauty is ...

Pharr section 128 line 4

This line reads as follows: ei)/ pote kraiai/nei a)/nac e)e/ldwr i(erh=i, Danaoi\ ti/sousi da/krua ge/rontoj be/lessin qeou=. I think I know what this means but I would like to make sure that I am on the right path. I'll give my translation with the words in bold print being the ones that I am unsure of. Any comment will be appreciated.<br /><br />If at any time the Protector performs his will for the priest, the ...




Q about Vitt's Latin Phrase list

<br />I have a question about the format of this Latin-Word-a-Day site.<br />http://mail.minnehahaacademy.net/Lists/latin-phrase/Message/43.html<br /><br />They have words listed like this:<br /><br />feles/felem<br />luna/lunam<br />nox/noctem<br />umbra/umbram<br />etc.<br /><br />I know the first word is the Nominative Singular.<br />The second word looks like the Accusative Singular.<br /><br />My question is... why did they do it that way? Why not do it like the dictionaries by giving the Genitive Singular for the second word?<br /><br />

Going Down Under

I know there are Australians on this board...<br /><br />I'm heading to Sidney for a little R&R the middle of November. December was my first choice, but the tickets were outrageous!<br /><br />How warm (or cool) is the water around November 20th? I'll be in Sidney.<br /><br />Also, besides the Opera House, what are the must see attractions in Sidney? Any good classical bookstores? :)<br /><br />thanks,<br ...

Motion

I found this article while looking for something else: http://archimedes.fas.harvard.edu/mdh/motion.pdf<br /><br />It's about how Latin and Greek distinguish between place to which, place in which, and place from which. There are examples from different languages (Greek, Latin, English and German), and passages from ancient authors discussing the differences. What the Greeks and Romans thought about Greek and Roman grammar in their own words ...

Bookbinding

I'm living quite away from any college or univ. and there's no book-binding shop in the vicinity. So I usually come up binding the printed papers myself.<br /><br />I tried several methods, stapling, stitching(with thin electrical wires), punch and ring, using adhesives(pale-wellow stinking cenent, or less stinking epoxy, etc), repkover-like covers, etc. I started this ever since I got an old paperback RSV bible of which the cover was ragged -- I removed the old ...

Glidersleeve vs. A&G New Latin Grammar

Is there much, if any, difference of signification amongst the following means of expressing diproportion in Latin?<br /><br />1. quam pro<br />2. quam ut<br />3. quam qui<br /><br />Sententiae exempli cavsa adsvnt.

Homeschooling (from Third Declension)

Continued from Third Declension, Learning Latin Forum...<br /><br />Yes, I live in Alabama, America. Homeschooling is becoming more common now, but when I started, it was still outside of what normal, acceptable people did. Not even my grandparents thought we'd make it, but we did...I just took my standardized graduation test a couple of weeks ago (a year late, unfortunately, because it's expensive, and I had to save up for it), and I should know ...
