Lesson 8

Postby Hammurabi » Sat Apr 29, 2006 11:31 pm

Hi you all guys!

Now I'm working on lesson 8
I hope not to be so wrong.

Your mony will remain under the ground.
9. Ibi, sub terra, pecunia vestra remanebit.
Write many things about the glory of your state.
10. Scribe (Scribite) multa de gloria civitatis nostrae.
Does reason always lead men to virtue?
11. Ratione virtuti homines semper agit.
Many books of the Greeks teach reason and wisdom.
12. Multi libri Graecorum rationem sapientiamque docunt.

A little something from mine... :oops: :oops:

Copias ad terram vestram duco. Bellum incipet. Civitas nostra magna est. Civitas nostra gloriam famamque habebit. Rex noster rex vester erit et puellae vestrae puellae nostrae erunt. Si satis viris sunt, magnum bellum pugnabimus. Poetae puerique virtuti nostrae semper cantabunt.

Thanx very much for your help guys... I dont know what I would I do without ya.!

9. Ibi, sub terra, pecunia vestra remanebit.

well, you got the sense of it right, but a more literal translation would require that ibi be left out.
Write many things about the glory of your state.
10. Scribe (Scribite) multa de gloria civitatis nostrae.

yup.
Does reason always lead men to virtue?
11. Ratione virtuti homines semper agit.

haha. for a minute there I couldn't figure out why you put ratio in the ablative. :lol: but then I realized it was a question. :lol:
Many books of the Greeks teach reason and wisdom.
12. Multi libri Graecorum rationem sapientiamque docunt.

Ratione virtuti homines semper agit


I'd probably choose ad virtutem, not virtuti (dative). You'll find the dative of motion toward sometimes in Virgil, but it's pretty rare. ad + accusative, except with certain verbs, is by far the most common construction.

Copias ad terram vestram duco. Bellum incipet. Civitas nostra magna est. Civitas nostra gloriam famamque habebit. Rex noster rex vester erit et puellae vestrae puellae nostrae erunt. Si satis viris sunt, magnum bellum pugnabimus. Poetae puerique virtuti nostrae semper cantabunt.

I'm not quite sure about si satis viris sunt - do you mean "if our strength is enough? If so, you want si satis vires sunt. Also, what about virtuti nostrae...cantabunt: is this "will sing about our manliness?" I think that de virtute nostra expresses this idea more clearly. Did you choose the dative for a different reason?

Best,

David
