Has Catullus lost it?

"Phaselus ille, quem videtis, hospites,
ait fuisse navium celerrimus"

I mean, what the irrumationem? Does C not speak latin any longer? Indirect speech with a nominative?!

What weird sort of semi-greek-latin kind of literary oddity am I dealing with here? Is this allowed? Should it be allowed?

Hi, just thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm a full time theological student, and in my spare time I'm studying 2nd year college latin. Really encouraged by the way this site is growing and developing, and now that I have some more permanent net access, thought I'd sign up and get involved some.

oscillationis vocab help in Hyginus

I'm stumped by a word. I'm trying to translate Hyginus' Fabulae of Icarius and Erigone and I can't find the word "oscillationis" anywhere.

Here's the context:

Quo responso de pastoribus supplicium sumpserunt et Erigonae diem festum oscillationis pestilentiae causa instituerunt et ut per vindemiam de frugibus Icario et Erigonae primum delibarent.

It looks to me like "oscillationis" is a third declension adjective in the genitive modifying "pestilentiae". Would it be correct to understand this as ...

So does this mean it is not wrong to put ...

Salvete, omnes!

I happen to be an interested Latin student, and apparently I have too much time on my hands. Either that or I'm following Amy. It's interesting to see how much everything is interconnected; I got here through a search for some poetry, which I started because of another forum I looked at, which I viewed because I wanted to search for a haiku I wrote once.
