While paper-surfing old books, I hit something that led me to the D’Ooge Key:
§368 page 159
1. a) Quis Caesarem iter facere iussit? – b) Quis imperavit ut Caesar iter faceret?
The translation task in the original book is:
”Who ordered Caesar to make the march? (Write this sentence both with impero and with iubeo.)”
In the main text of the chapter, an EXAMPLE of impero is given: ”The general ordered the soldiers to run – Imperator militibus imperavit ut currerent.” Also, ”Iubeo eum venire” is compared with ”Impero ei ut veniat”, and Mr D’ points out that ’dative of the person ordered’ is used with ’impero’.
So shouldn’t answer 1. b) be ”Quis Caesari imperavit ut iter faceret?”
Now, the current b) answer does not in itself seem wrong to me, but I wonder if it is stylistically as acceptable as the version wth the dative that Mr D’ was seemingly touting?
Can some kind expert pronounce on this one, please?
