Ante diem octavum kalendas Apriles...

Postby pmda » Tue Jul 27, 2010 6:04 am

Hi, I just want to confirm something. The use of Apriles in the above post is as an adjective, right? I understand that when one writes 'Ante diem octavum kalendas Iulias' 'Iulias' is feminine, accusative plural. Where as Iulius - July - is masculine noun of the 2nd declension. So as Aprilis is a 3rd declension masculine noun so 'Apriles' here is, in fact, a third declension feminine adjective in the accusative plural to agree with kalendas - do I have that right?

regards..

You're right, surely. // Non erras quidem.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

Thanks Adrianus. I needed that reality-check.
