Cur dextras iungere non licet ac vere colloqui?

Postby pmda » Sun Mar 17, 2013 1:29 pm

Aeneas Venerem rogat: 'Cur dextras iungere non licet ac vere colloqui?'

Nonne 'dextras' = familia est?

Minime; dextra est dextra manus. (Jam hoc verbum in alio capitulo legisti, nonne?)

Yes but what, then, does it mean? Is it some highly idiomatic phrase?

dextras jungere = shake hands // join hands (ut dicis)
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

Vide Vergilii ipsissima verba (Aeneis I,408):

... Cur dextrae iungere dextram
non datur ac veras audire et reddere voces?

non datur=non licet (LLPSI Aeneis)

Nonnumquam magno usui est ipsa auctorum Romanorum scripta legere ut facilius sit intellegere verba Orbergis cum obscura videntur.

Salve!
