I thought I was doing well with Latin for Beginners until I did the lesson on emphatic (69, pg.30), where I got more wrong than is acceptable.
9. Clara est insula Sicila.
I figured Clara would be emphatic.
and in the answer part of question 7. Longa est Italia, non lata.
I figured Longa would be emphatic.
They were not, so obviously my Latin word order is not up to snuff yet. But I only know what D'Ooge has told me so far! Have I missed something?
So I have a couple questions,
1. Why did I get those wrong?
2. If my word order should be better at this point in D'Ooge's text, could someone bring me up to speed?
So far I know: subject- modifier of subject- indirect object- direct object-adverb- verb.
Possesive pronouns and genetive of possessors follow their nouns unless emphatic, same with adjectives.
Ummm, I think thats all D'Ooge has coverd so far...
Thanks for reading this mess of a post. I look forward to any reply.
p.s. This is my first post! So greetings all!
