<br /><br />Oh, I see. To simplify the sentence it would be "The reputation is not good", thus good must agree with reputation. I got lost when they threw in all that "fluff" in the sentence.<br /><br />#2. You were very close with this one except bonam should match fama so it would be bona.
<br /><br />Oh!!! OK, I think I get it. Nauta is masculine, thus we use bonus in ABL form which is bonö. I'm really sloppy about matching up the gender/case of adjectives, especially when they're from different declensions. That was also sloppy of me to leave out "cum". It's because I assume that the ABL case has the preposition tacked on by default.<br /><br />#5. I don't know if you've learned it yet, but the "with" in this sentence should probably be cum+ablative. Once again, bonum must match with nauta. Revised, it would look like Cur Lesbia cum nauta bono ex casa properat?.
<br /><br />Nope, I have to admit that I really thought it was spelled "equuï". <br /><br />Eeks! I can't believe I overlooked the PLURAL farmers. Ya, that was really really bad on my part. So it's the GEN PLUR! And I forgot to pluralize the verb.<br /><br />So it should be : Equï agricölarum malörum parvï sunt<br /><br />#8. This one is the only one that is significantly off. You misspelled equi (typo perhaps); "of the wicked farmers" should be agricolarum malorum; est needs to be sunt because the horses are plural.
<br /><br />This is always on the back of my mind. <br /><br /><br />Learning from a book, I would be concerned with the mistakes you don't know you're making.
<br /><br />Mommy! Mommy! Episcopus is scaring me again. Waaah! :'(<br /><br /><br />Just hope, for your sanity's sake, that this was just an offbeat exercise for you - alius, alia, aliud etc. show no mercy :'(
<br /><br />Are you talking about the alius, alia, aliud you mentioned earlier? They don't look so bad...<br /><br />Yes, 9 irregular adjectives hurt me aswell ;D
<br /><br />That's not a very nice thing to say about your mother. My mother couldn't help me with Partial Differential Equations, but I still love her and don't call her stupid...<br /><br />... but my mother is stupid so she can do nothing to aid me.
<br /><br />Good, I look forward to it. As it is now, I'm just taking wild stabs at it when I want to say something. I'm looking up the verb and then trying to get it to fit in one of the verb charts in the front of my dictionary. It's not really efficacious since I have no idea what I'm doing.<br /><br />And I also have a need to learn conjunctions, more pronouns, and relative clauses.<br /><br />Anyhow, I be on page 70, and Dr. D'Ooge talks for a LONG time about verbs.
