Quick question (actually two). I was re-reading wheelocks chapters 1 through 30 and had two little things I hoped someone could clear up.
1) chapter 2: sententiae antiquae:
7: Me vitare turbam iubes.
you order me to avoid the mob.
How do I know that it is "me" that is to avoid and not "the mob" that is to avoid. They are both accusative. Does any rule of syntax say that the infinitive follows the acc. and not precede it?
2) Same question but with the genitive.
chapter 4 practice and review
8:Femina agricolae portam videt.
The farmer's woman sees the gate or the woman sees the farmer's gate?
