#4 Result Clauses / Consecutive Sentences

Postby benissimus » Sat Jan 24, 2004 8:49 pm

N&H Page 9, Exercise 6 [A], http://www.textkit.com/files/NH_Latin_P ... df#page=27

1. The soldiers are so brave that they always conquer the enemy.

2. The danger is so great that no ships can be saved.

3. So great a storm had arisen that all the sailors were terrified.

4. He escaped so quickly that no one could catch him.


Also... try to guess which of the Prose Composition exercises this is (it's not exact):
Tantus erat timor eis audaciam ut non habuerint ripas praeterire.
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae

With considerable trepidation (but all learning is embarrassment):

1. milites tam fortes sunt ut hostes semper vincant.

2. tantum est periculum ut nulla ex navium conservari possit.

3. talis tempestas coorta est ut nautae universi perterrerentur.*

4. tam celeriter effugit ut nemo eum capere posset.

And a picturesque version of N&H No. 9 in Latin, roughly "They were so scared they dared not cross the river".

*Edited: originally (wrongly) pres pass subj.

My solution is:

1. Militibus tanta virtus est ut hostes semper superent.
2. Tantum periculum est ut nulla navium servari possint.
3. Tanta tempestas surrexerat ut nautae omnes timerent.
4. Ita celerriter effugit ut nemo se captare posset

Tam fortes sunt milites ut semper hostes vincant
Tantum est periculum ut nulla navis servari possit
Tanta tempestas adorta est ut omnes nautae terrebantur
Tam celeriter effugit ut nemo eum capere posset

1. The soldiers are so brave that they always conquer the enemy.
-Virtu's milites ut tantae hostes vincant semper.

2. The danger is so great that no ships can be saved.
-Magnitudine periculum ut tanta naves nullae conservarentur.

3. So great a storm had arisen that all the sailors were terrified.
-Tanta erat exorta ut tempestas milites perterriti omnes.

4. He escaped so quickly that no one could catch him.
-Velocitas eius mirabilis ut visu posset nemo eum capere.

1. Elision (I elided it sue me it sounds better)
4. (Velox replaced now by velocitas) I was using velox to describe "res" which was understood. But that was a bit far fetched for benissimus .
