Wheelock Chapter 3

Postby fsohn » Fri Jul 15, 2005 5:22 am

Ok, here's my translation of the selection from chapter 3, with the Latin first.

Agricola et vitam et fortunam nautae saepe laudat; nauta magnam fortunam et vitam poetae saepe laudat; et poeta vitam et agros agricolae laudat. Sine philisophia avari viri de pecunia semper cogitant: multam pecuniam habent, sed pecunia multa viram avarum non satiat.

and my translation:

The farmer praises both the life and the fortune of the sailor; the sailor often praises the greay fortune and life of the poet; the poet praises the life and the fields of the farmer. Without philosophy greedy men always think about money: they have much money, but much money does not satisfy the greedy man

As always, help is appreciated

Very good. You did miss a saepe in the first line and the et introducing the third sentence. Further, I think it must have been virum avarum in the last line (not viram). But apart from that, your translation is correct.
