Veientem

On page 123 of LLPSI Orberg refers to Veientem hostem. The whole sentence is: Tullus adversus Veientem hostem dirigit suos, Albanos contra legionem Fidenatium collocat.

Am I right in taking it that Veintem is a masculine adjective agreeing with hostem.

D'ooge level

I'll be using D'Ooge for learning latin. Right now I am in the process of printing and putting together my studying materials and space.

I was wondering, how far will D'Ooge take a student? I'll use that textbook anyway, but it would be nice to know.

Will I be able to express myself in latin by the end of it?

Hi everyone

Hello.

I don't know if you need reasons to learn something you like. I simply like latin, always have.

My goals include conversational latin and maybe reading some classical texts in the future, if I am a good latin student that is.

That's why I joined the forum and I am looking forward to starting this journey along with everyone else.

Etymology of συμφορα/συμφορος

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ι noticed that by changing the gender of συμφορος (which I believe is based on the verb συμφορω), the meaning is diametrically changed. Ι was wondering how, making the word feminine, can change its meaning so drastically. The masculine means "profitable/accompanying" and the feminine means "misfortune/calamity". If anyone could possible explain how the transformation happened or logically explain the thought behind it would be greatly appreciated

I also noticed ...

"Complete" Latin word list with principal parts?

Hello,

Does anyone know of a list of all the words in a lexicon, e.g. Lewis & Short, along with their principal parts? Like this list, but comprehensive rather than just the most frequent words. It seems that the Vocabulary Tool at Perseus shows only the words.

Such a list could be generated using the Lewis & Short XML file, I suppose, but I was wondering if it exists already.

Thanks!

Critical Apparatus

Hey,

I have been looking at the teubner edition of the Anabasis http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k25361m/f10.image
and wonder if anyone could help with the critical apparatus. It doesn't seem to provide much clarity as to where anything should go or what it replaces!
