Omne

Postby pmda » Tue Apr 02, 2013 7:38 pm

In Orberg LLPSI Cap XXXIX ille scripsit:

'... scelus regis omne patefecit.'

= '...omne scelus regis patefecit'.

Nonne est 'omne' neut. nom. sing. ut 'scelus' sit?

'The whole crime of the king was laid open..'

The sentence is incomplete, as you write it. I don't know the context.
Patefecit is active voice, not passive. Omne could indeed be nominative. "Every one of the king's crimes shows...". Alternatively, "each thing [/everything, nom.] reveals the king's crime [acc.]"

Non integra haec sententia. Contextus caret. Activâ voce non passivâ est "patefecit". Nominativo casu esse illud advectivum omne enim fieri potest. Accusativo aliter altero sensu.

Tum Venus "Equidem" inquit "tali honore me haud dignam puto. Virgo Karthaginiensis sum; nobis mos est arcum sagittasque gestare et in silvis venari. In oram Libyae venisti, in regnum Didonis reginae, quae Tyro, ex urbe Phoenices, huc profecta est fratrem improbum fugiens [fugere aliquem = fugere ab aliquo]. Huic coniunx erat Sychaeus, divitissimus Phoenicum. Regnum autem Tyri habebat frater Didonis Pygmalion, rex impius atque scelestus. Ille auri cupidus Sychaeum ante aram clam necavit factumque diu celavit et multa simulans viduam maestam falsa spe elusit. Sed in somnis Didoni apparuit imago coniugis mortui, qui mirum in modum os pallidum tollens aram cruentam et pectus suum vulneratum nudavit et scelus regis omne patefecit; tum uxori suasit ut celeriter ex patria excederet, et simul veteres thesauros occultos, ignotum pondus auri et argenti, monstravit.

I don't really understand the rules that govern the case and gender of omnis, omne... Usually my first consideration will be what case and gender is this in. It seems to be neuter nominative singular and thus I am suggesting that it qualifies scelus (n)....the whole crime was exposed...

thought it feels like an adverb....but there is no (so far as I know) adverb 'omne'...

I found the sentence:
"Sed in somnis Didoni apparuit imago coniugis mortui, qui mirum in modum os pallidum tollens aram cruentam et pectus suum vulneratum nudavit et scelus regis omne patefecit."

"...he revealed every crime of the king."
Scelus and omne are accusative

Sententiam reperi. Accusativo et scelus et omne.

Post Scriptum


Thanks. You gave the context as I was writing the above.
Gratias tibi qui contextum paraveris dum ego supra scribo.
