Cap. 40 of Roma Aeterna

Postby Perseus » Mon Feb 06, 2012 1:03 pm

For cap. 40 of Roma Aeterna. I appreciate your correction.

Quid regina se sperare dixit?
Speravit equidem illi in mediis scopulis periisse.

Num Anna consilium sororis intellexit?
Non intellexit sororem furentem funus paravisse.

Ubi Dido deos precabatur?
iuxta altaria deos precabatur.

Quid regina se facere potuisse dixit?
Eum et socios et ipsum Ascanium ferro absumere potuisse dixit.

Quomodo comites mortem reginae luxerunt?
GemitU et ululatU feminarum tectA resonant. (capitals stand for macrons.)

Aeneas Karthaginem respiciens quid vidit?
Moenia Karthaginis infelicis Didonis flammis collucentes vidit.

Sorry no one has gotten back with you.

Perseus wrote:Quid regina se sperare dixit?
Speravit equidem illi in mediis scopulis periisse.

Since this is an AcI, check the case of the subject in the AcI-noun-clause of the answer.

GemitU et ululatU feminarum tectA resonant. (capitals stand for macrons.)

not sure why you want tecta in the abl

No. AcI. Accusativus cum infinitivo. It's a construction used to introduce an indirect statement, like you have in those two sentences. E.g. "I am happy THAT you are awake"; such statements in English are introduced by the word "that". The subject of the clause goes into the accusative case and the verb into the infinitive.

Got it, so it should be:

Speravit equidem illem in mediis scopulis periisse.

Not sure why you want tecta in abl.?


I meant to say "in houses". is it right?

Illum and we have a deal.

Nope. It's a neuter plural, and the subject of resonant.
