[Jason & I study Latin together from Wheelock's Latin, and since we've not received
any answer yet on that section, we've decided to copy it over here.]
In the first chapter, we’ve already run into a question of word order. Number 18 is an English to Greek sentence. It is You ought not to praise me.
We’ve come up with:
Nōn mē dēbēs laudāre.
Nōn dēbēs mē laudāre.
Mē laudāre nōn dēbēs.
Are either of these possible? Is there a difference? Does it matter?
The text itself doesn’t give an example of dēbeō with both a complementary verb and a direct object.
We're leaning toward nōn dēbēs mē laudāre, by the way. Is that correct?
Any help would be appreciated.
