[Excuse for my delay but my computer was broken for a while. Thanks for your replies.]
Luke, being you an active user of Lingua Latina
, let my know how to work through LLPS II because it seems to be a bit exasperating (the exercises look like a bit long in comparison with LLPS I). I've read some of Domus Latina reading stuff like Catilina's conspiracy and the volume whose name is Sermones Romani
. Do you have any other Domus Latina book (Ã†neis, De rerum natura, FabellÃ¦ SyrÃ¦, CÃ¦sar's Commentaries, Amphytrio, &c.)? They seem good and I'll probably buy some of them. Which ones do you recommend? Besides, I am progressing through Athenaze
and the new reading books seem also very interesting.
I have some other doubts which have arisen in my review of the first volume. I've read up to chapter XXIX and I probably finish it within four or five days.
Firstly. I usually find sentences where the nucleus of the syntagm (for instance, a Manner Adverbial [apologises if it's not the proper English grammatical term]) is moved: Iter fecit in mirabilem modum vs. Iter fecit mirabilem in modum
or In hunc modum locutus est vs. Hunc in modum locutus est
Also: Ille magister cum magnÃ¢ cupiditate me erudiebat vs. Ille magister magnÃ¢ cum cupiditate me erudiebat
). I don't know when it's possible to do so. I mean, is it when we use a preposition (cum, ex, in, de, &c.) where the nucleus (say, cum magno clamore
) has an adjective? In such a situation, is the adjective always able to be taken out of the syntagm (looking towards stylistic aims, I guess)? Are there any other similar cases? Besides any answer, I'd appreciate any Grammar/Classical/Neolatin source.
Secondly. Is there any good resource (website, grammar, or whatever else) on the usage of such words as, for instance, "contrÃ¢" in the way of manner adverbs instead of prepositions? It really makes me go crazy.
I hope I've expressed this well. Many thanks in advance.
P.S.: Does anyone know how to listen to mp4 files from Vivarium Novum recent LLPS I recordings? So far, Î™'ve not mp4 player, but mp3 and I'd like to listen to them.
