Hello all; I'm studying with Jenney's First Year Latin, and I don't have an answer key to the exercises contained therein. Since sometimes I've found that it really is confusing, and important to clear up that confusion, I'd like some help with whether my attempt at translating Chapter 39, exercise B-9, is the most effective way to phrase it.
Example: The attack of our foot soldiers forced the enemy to run down the mountain toward the river.
My translation: Impetus nostrorum peditum hostes de monte ad flumen currere coegit.
At first it seems like a straight-forward question, but then there's the issue of Latin syntax (for instance, I've seen the infinitive come after the active verb as well as before—the only thing that makes me think it comes first in this case, is a sort of isolationism, like "the enemy to run down the mountain..." is a sort of clause that must be enveloped by the subject and active verb). Does anyone know a better way to phrase this, or, even better, have the answer key to Jenney's FYL?
Thanks in advance.
