Salve, Didyme!

Thanks for the comments!

1. There is more than one Roman, so I used the genitive plural. Is this wrong?

2. That's a very good point about using "fourth" vs. "four"--gotta love those little goofs :)

Also, I'm aware of missing some of the macrons. I just put in that I thought were most important, but I realize it's important to get in the habit of knowing where they all are. Maybe I should think of them as a necessary part of spelling...

Vale!

There is more than one Roman, but only one populus Romanus. Populus is a collective noun.

Ah, yes--thank you very much!

Have you used Bradley's Arnold yourself?
