De variis formulis ad Latinum sermonem colloquendum.

Lectio quarta.

Incipit lectio quarta.

Venire et redire

Where are you coming from? = Unde advenis?
I'm coming from my brother's (house) = A fratre venio.
I'll back (very) soon = Quam mox veniam.
I come often to the city = Venio frequens in urbem.
We have arrived long time ago = Jamdiu factum est cum (postquam) venimus.
Are you coming? Will you come? = Veniesne?/ Numnam venies (venias)?
-Sure! = Etiam./ Certe.
Are you coming or not? = Veniesne annon?
Are you coming tomorrow? = Veniesne cras?
-Yes, but in the evening = -Ego vero, sed sub vesperum.
What day are you coming (back)? = Ad quem diem (ad quae tempora) venies (redibis)?
Come here whenever you like = Ut vis, accede.
Have you just arrived? = Advenis modo?
You were to be met by me= Ego obviam tibi conabar.
You have been met by me at just the right moment= Commodum obviam mihi venisti.
You are arriving in time = Per tempus venis.
You are here quite late = Tardius (justo) venisti.
You are here a bit late = Tardiuscule venisti.
Why have you come here? = Quae te causa impulit ut huc venires?
Hurry, come back here soon! = Propera, actutum huc redi.
He comes from Africa, he is here from Africa = Adest ex Africa.
How long have you been back here? = Quampridem rediisti?
Not long ago he came to see me = Non ita pridem me convenit.
Why didn't you make him come in? = Quidni eum intro misisti?
I'll bring him here to you = Huc coram (te) adducam eum.
So, when will he be back? = Ecquando redibit?
He will come back tomorrow, at the latest = Ut tardissime cras redibit.
But who has knocked at my door? = Quisnam a me pepulit fores?
He is waiting at the door = Ad januam expectat.
Come in, otherwise I'll close the door = Ingredere, sin aliter occludam fores.

Finis lectionis quartae.

Utinam vobis proficiat, o interretiales amici!
Hominibus totam versandam constat esse bibliothecam, ut solam utilem scribere sententiam possint.

Salve, gratias plurimam te do ad nos sermonem doscerem, forsan me manum dare possim, quodmod dicere possum "times" ut in sententia "how many times" ?

Vale.

Franmorarius Petro salutem dicit multam.

Ave, o Petre amice.

De quaestione tua vel rogatione:

"How many times?" latine uno dicitur verbo: "Quotiens?" sive "Quoties?".

Vale.
