Wheelock Chaps 16 to 20 key comments

Postby wm33 » Fri May 21, 2004 8:42 pm

Salvete amici,

I have now completed Chaps 16 to 20 and would suggest the following possible changes to the key:

Chap 16
P&R
11 .....are not well the bad storm. CHANGE TO ...are not well in the bad storm?

Chap 17
P&R
1 ... which always nourishes us. CHANGE TO ...which always nourish us?

SA
7 ...a man who loves too much... CHANGE TO ...a man whom she loves too much...?

Chap 19
P&R
12 ...paraverat. CHANGE TO ...paraverant?

Chap 20
P&R
14 ...carent. CHANGE TO ...carebant?

SA
11 ...nor bows. CHANGE TO ...nor a bow.?


Thanks again for all the hard work put into this key. For independent learners like myself it is invaluable and to be able to develop the confidence to suggest minor improvements is a bonus. Having now completed Chaps 1 to 20 at a rate of about one per week, I am going to spend a few weeks consolidating the grammar and revisiting the vocabulary I have forgotten from the early chapters!!

The most recent version of the key says "...on account of the bad storm". You may have an older version, or I neglected to change the formerly posted version. It seems to me this is an ablative of cause, though Wheelock has cruelly left that undiscussed.

Chap 17
P&R
1 ... which always nourishes us. CHANGE TO ...which always nourish us?

Ah, good eye.

SA
7 ...a man who loves too much... CHANGE TO ...a man whom she loves too much...?

Absolutely right...

Chap 19
P&R
12 ...paraverat. CHANGE TO ...paraverant?

Right again

Chap 20
P&R
14 ...carent. CHANGE TO ...carebant?

The key I am looking at has caruerunt. Carebant is a better choice though.

SA
11 ...nor bows. CHANGE TO ...nor a bow.?

Correct again

I am just as appreciative to hear your feedback. You seem to be doing very well yourself, I hope you are enjoying it.
