How am I doing?

Postby NelsonN » Tue May 04, 2004 1:24 am

I have a problem memorizing the many rules. OK, I was never that great for memorizing Subject, Predicate, etc., in English or Spanish, so what makes me think I will in Latin? :oops:

BTW, I am not giving up. :)

maxime is an adverb (greatly) and superlative (great/greater/greatest). You should use the adjective magnus.

Just curious, but where did you locate programmator? It's not in my dictionary of course, but it is probably Neo Latin.

Don't remember exactly how I got to the page.

Vocabularium computatrale Anglico-Latinum
http://www.obta.uw.edu.pl/~draco/docs/voccomp.html

Can you tell me all the Latin categories? I know Classical and Ecclesiastic, now Neo. What are the differences? Is the sentence structure different as well?
