LLPSI Cap XXXI - health check...

Postby brookter » Mon Mar 07, 2011 5:17 pm

Salvēte amīcī,

Reptō per silvam saevam Pēnsōrum Capītulī XXXI... Ferāsne vītāvī?

1. (Quis fuit Midās?)
Midās rēx fuit, ā Bacchō deō donātus potestātem quidquid ab sē tāctum in aurum mūtāre.

2. (Quid faciet Iūlius sī Mēdum invēnerit?)
Pēcuniā nōn reditā, Mēdus inventus ab Iūliō cruciandus erit.

3. (Quī hominēs ad bēstiās mittuntur?)
Chrīstiānī ad bēstiās mittuntur, quia īnfantēs edunt et hominem adōrant velut deus sit.
(Incertus sum clausulae 'velut deus sit' - suntne nōminātīvus et coniūnctīvus hīc rectī?)

4. (Cūr Orontēs pedibus stāre nōn potest?)
Vīnō nimiō bibitō, Orontēs ēbrius pedibus stāre nōn potest.

(Sorry, but my Latin's not up to this next bit...)

I'm trying to get a feel for more 'natural' (or at least "less English") Latin, so in most of these answers I'm trying to get as many participles etc in as possible, rather than resort to simpler constructions — in the last question, for example, instead of a simple Nōn stāre potest quia nimium pōtavit - ēbrius est. I'm not sure if it's working, though...

Many thanks for any comments
