Quidam in Suetonius

Postby Rufus Coppertop » Mon Jun 08, 2009 8:33 am

Greetings everyone,

I'm having a problem with quidam in Chapter 54 of Suetonius' Augustus.

Interdum ob immodicas disceptantium altercationes e curia per iram se proripienti quidam ingesserunt licere oportere senatoribus de re p. loqui.

I cannot work out what quidam is supposed to go with. Is it iram?
I don't see how it can possibly go with ingesserunt, because it would have to quaedam, wouldn't it?

Hi and welcome, Rufus Coppertop. // Salve, Rufe Aericome. Gratus tuus adventus.

Nonnè subjectum "ingesserunt" verbi est "quidam" (sicut pronomen numeri pluralis generis masculini casu nominativo) = "certain ones [men/senators] kept pressing/repeating"
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

Gratias tibi do.

Recordatus non eram ut "quidam" pluralis quoque sit.
