Question about D'Ooge Exercise #111 • II

Postby William » Mon Jan 09, 2006 11:52 pm

Hi All,

Number 7 in the English to Latin goes like this:

Question:
Among the Romans (there) is no lack of grain.

Answer:
Apud Romanos inopia frumenti non est (or)
Apud Romanos nulla est inopia frumenti.

Why is Romans in the acc. plural? Shouldn't it be "Romani" for Romans in the plural subject case? Maybe I'm tired from too many hours of review, but I fail to see how this works.

Thanks for any help in advance.

:lol:

I answered my own question. In the vocabulary list it clearly states "apud, prep with acc." I need to study my vocabulary more carefully.

Thanks,
WB

Here is a list of all the prepositions and whether they take acc,. abl. etc.

It's not presented very well but you might be able to re-format it.

I still don't know half of them :shock:

Hi Carola,

Your list is very useful. Thanks so much for the help! I am going to try to memorize this list –– it'll save me a lot of trouble later, I am sure.
