My brief introduction

Hi, my name is David and I am from Mexico. Currently I'm learning latin with an excellent, but hard course called Gramática Latina, by Julio Pimentel, a renamed mexican humanist. I also use the Wheelock's reader and the FRPSI as complements. I wish to contribute you all and to pass a good time.

Familia Romana - pensa

Salvete Omnes!
If anyone could point out the mistakes in the following from Pensum C it would be really appreciated.

Capitulum IV
Quot nummi sunt in sacculo Iulii? Decem nummi sunt in sacculo Iulii
Adestne Davus in scaena prima? Davus in scaena prima non adest
Quis Davum vocat? Davum dominus vocat
Suntne nummi Iulii in sacculo Davi? Nummi Iulii non in sacculo Davi sunt
Quid Iulius ponit in sacculo Davi? Iulius ponit in sacculo Davi, ...

Salvete omnes!

I am currently working through Lingua Latina with alongside CLC. Compared to many others here, I'm a newcomer to Latin with around 1 1/2 year experience. I've been lurking around text kit for quite a while and it was the helpful people here that convinced me to study from LL (it is well worth it), currently up to chapter IV. I hope to some day become reasonably fluent in reading original Latin authors, ...

Nuntiatum est

See this from LLPSI Cap XLIV

Anci liberi iam tum, comprehensis sceleris ministris, ut vivere regem et tantas esse opes Servii nuntiatum est, Suesssam Pometiam exsulatum ierant.

Does the participle here nuntiatum belong to opes - and if it does then why isn't it nuntiatae sunt?

Is nuntiatum just an idiomatic way of saying it had happened...?

2Thes 2:1-4 ἡ ἀποστασία ... ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἀνομίας

2Th. 2:1 Ἐρωτῶμεν δὲ ὑμᾶς, ἀδελφοί, ὑπὲρ τῆς παρουσίας τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ ἡμῶν ἐπισυναγωγῆς ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν 2 εἰς τὸ μὴ ταχέως σαλευθῆναι ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ τοῦ νοὸς μηδὲ θροεῖσθαι, μήτε διὰ πνεύματος μήτε διὰ λόγου μήτε δι᾿ ἐπιστολῆς ὡς δι᾿ ἡμῶν, ὡς ὅτι ἐνέστηκεν ἡ ἡμέρα τοῦ κυρίου· 3 Μή τις ὑμᾶς ἐξαπατήσῃ κατὰ μηδένα τρόπον. ὅτι ἐὰν μὴ ἔλθῃ ἡ ἀποστασία πρῶτον καὶ ἀποκαλυφθῇ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἀνομίας, ὁ υἱὸς τῆς ἀπωλείας, ...

What does "setius" mean?

In Virgil Georgics III is this text, in a description (which makes me think of Ice Road Truckers) of a winter in the steppes back of the Sea of Azov :-

Interea toto non setius aere ninguit:
intereunt pecudes, stant circumfusa pruinis
corpora magna boum, confertoque agmine cervi
torpent mole nova et summis vix cornibus extant.

What does "setius" mean exactly? I cannot find it in my good big voluminous Latin to English dictionary. Google ...

An Introduction

Hello all,

As I just registered, I should introduce myself. I'm grimsie. I'm coming back to Latin after what feels like ages. I was never very good with Latin, but somewhere along the way I forgot what little I used to know. So now begins the work of re-learning the language. I'll probably be working from M&F's Intensive Course and Orberg's Lingua Latina at first.

I started learning Old English about a year ago. That ...

Help with Roma Aeterna

Having finished Familia Romana. I proceeded to the Lingua Latina Caesar, which I had trouble I with, so was therefore quit and read Sermones Romani. I was then advised to continue to Roma Aeterna which I have been reading currently. I zoomed through chapters one to three in several days with no vocabulary issues, but when I got to the forth chapter I have been ground down through grammar. I have been trying do the ...

Just an observation and a smile

As I was working through the early lines of The Illiad, I came to these lines:

ἢ εἰ δή ποτέ τοι κατὰ πίονα μηρί' ἔκηα
ταύρων ἠδ' αἰγῶν, τόδέ μοι κρήηνον ἐέλδωρ·

I had to smile as I had to interrupt my work in order to turn the chicken thighs on the grill.
