humi

Postby pmda » Wed Mar 02, 2011 8:07 pm

In LLPSI Orberg scribit: 'Icarus autem, quo consilium, patris ignorabat, humi consedit et 'Fessus sum' inquit 'ambulando in hoc carcere, quem ipse nobis aedifacivisti, pater'.'

Orberb 'humi' adverbum esse dicit in index. Verum nonne 'humi' locativus est?

Wheelock calls it the locative form. I don't think the distinction is terribly important here; the important thing is "humī = on the ground".
