Perfect participle on its own

Postby pmda » Sat Jan 15, 2011 10:16 am

In LLPSI Cap XXIV id dicitur: Hoc audito, dominus Marcum severe reprehendit.

I. Estne 'audito' participium perfectum? Sine verbo 'esse' ?

2. (when he) heard this, the father severely scolded Marcus.

Rectè dicis anglicè "When he heard this" seu "This having been heard" significare latinè "hôc audito" ut ablativum absolutum quo participium ut adjectivum se agit nec "esse" verbum requiritur.
In "hôc audito" the past participle is an adjective-like ablative absolute (where "esse" doesn't feature in any way).
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.

....Num 'audito' participium perfectum ablativum est - dum 'audiente' participium praesens ablativum est ???

No! They are. ["Num" wants a negative answer—"surely it isn't"; "nonnè" a positive, "surely it is";
Minimé! Participium perfectum casu ablativo est "audito"; itidem "audiente" participium praesens casu ablativo est. ["Num" negativum responsum exspectat; "nonnè" positivum.]
