I seem to be working one lesson behind you at the moment, and my main problem is with ordering of words, according to the key. I sometimes switch 2 words around. Seems to be a common mistake when in the early stages of learning Latin.

On 62, page 26, IIRC it was explained somewhere earlier on...I think it mentioned the page # it was explained on in a note. Double check the text. It's so easy to miss something. I usually reread the lesson several times before attempting the exercises.

Hi James et al.

First of all: the key is the work of students, like yourself. It is by no means perfect, and if your answer is different from the key, it is recommended that you go back to the Latin, and see which is wrong, or if both answers could be right (or wrong :) ). Often, with single sentences without context, different readings are possible.

If you're in doubt, ask your question here.

As to word order: Latin is rather free, and if your answer switches two words around as compared to the key, it's fine. No difference in meaning, perhaps in emphasis,as Andrus points out.

Good luck with your studies,
Ingrid
