Accusativus comparationis?

Postby Lavrentivs » Sat Aug 20, 2011 10:21 am

Ex Cartesio:

…, siquidem verum sit frigus nihil aliud esse quàm privationem caloris, …

Non intellexi qua re « privationem » scripserat et non « privatio ». putabam comparata eodem in casu stare esse.

Accusative in indirect statement: I hope this helps!

siquidem verum sit: if indeed it is true THAT (introduces indirect statement)
frigus: cold (accusative subject of the infinitive)
nihil aliud esse: is nothing other (infinitive with predicate accusative)
quam privationem caloris: than the lack of heat

Non animadverteram frigus esse neutrum. gratias tibi ago.
