Just checking M & F Unit 7

Postby bingley » Sat Jul 12, 2003 1:26 am

As there doesn't seem to be an answer key, or not one that's available to me at any rate, could someone have a quick look at this exercise for me, please? It's translating the following rather implausible sentences from English into Latin.<br /><br />What book is this which has been sent to us by our friends with whom we were walking?<br /><br /> Qui liber est hic qui nobis a amicis quibuscum ambulabamus missus est?<br /><br />The man whom you saw at that time is the sailor to whom I gave those gifts.<br /><br />Vir quem tunc vidisti est nauta cui donas illas dedi.<br /><br />For five years he hoped that he would complete this, his own work, but now he hates it.<br /><br />Quinque annos sperabat illud opus suum conficeret sed nunc id odit. <br /><br />We said that we would move five feet to the right in order that we might see your king with his queen and their sons.<br /><br />Diximus nos quinqe pedes ad dextram moturi esse ut regem vestrum cum regina et filiis videramus. <br /><br />Those wretched people not only hate themselves, but they also say that we hate them.<br /><br />Non solum illi miseri se oderunt sed etiam nos eos odisse dicerunt.<br />

<br /><br /><br />What book is this which has been sent to us by our friends with whom we were walking?<br /><br /> Qui liber est hic qui nobis a amicis quibuscum ambulabamus missus est?<br /><br /> This is correct, but "ab" can only be shortened to "a" before a consonant.<br /><br />The man whom you saw at that time is the sailor to whom I gave those gifts.<br /><br />Vir quem tunc vidisti est nauta cui donas illas dedi.<br /><br />Correct, although I believe the word is "donum" so the plural accusative would be "dona" (unless this an alternative).<br /><br />For five years he hoped that he would complete this, his own work, but now he hates it.<br /><br />Quinque annos sperabat illud opus suum conficeret sed nunc id odit. <br /><br /> Good, as far as I can tell.<br /><br />We said that we would move five feet to the right in order that we might see your king with his queen and their sons.<br /><br />Diximus nos quinqe pedes ad dextram moturi esse ut regem vestrum cum regina et filiis videramus. <br /><br /> I think it would be "moturos" instead of "moturi" since "nos" is the direct object of "diximus". "Videramus" should be "videremus" because it is just the infinitive with a present active ending on it.<br /><br />Those wretched people not only hate themselves, but they also say that we hate them.<br /><br />Non solum illi miseri se oderunt sed etiam nos eos odisse dicerunt.<br /><br />Right on 8) <br />

Oh, in the third sentence... illud should be hoc. Your sentence does make perfect sense, which is why I didn't notice, but I guess it doesn't really match the translation ::)

Illi= Those men, Illud= that thing, miseri= miserable men (or "the miserable").<br /><br />Non (not) solum (only) illi (those) miseri (miserable) se (themselves) oderunt (hate) sed (but) etiam (also) nos (us) eos (themselves) odisse (to have hated) dicerunt (they said).<br />

Yes adjectives by themselves can people or things with that characteristic.<br /><br />Think English "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly". Good, bad, and ugly are adjectives, right?<br /><br />So Latin, "Boni, Mali, Turpesque".

Is, Ea, Id typically do denote pronouns rather than adjectives.<br /><br />Is=he<br />Ea=she<br />Id=it<br />Ei/Ii, Eae, Ea= they

It should be dicunt instead of dicerunt, i believe.
