Quis/quid in indirect questions

Postby Quis ut Deus » Tue Sep 07, 2010 8:04 pm

Salvete!

I was wondering if I correctly understand quis in the context of indirect questions.

Here are some examples I have written:

Scio quis veniat. I know who is coming.
Scio cui librum des. I know to whom you are giving the book.
Scio cuius libri sit. I know whose book it is.
Scio quem necaveris. I know whom you killed.


Gratias vobis ago, amici amicaeque! :D

Unless I'm wrong, you're spot on, Quis ut Deus. Apart from "cuius liber sit".
Nisi equidem fallor, Quis ut Deus, perbonum est, separatim "cuius liber sit".
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.

...and more besides ...and less. No problem. :)
...item plus, ...item minus. Libenter.
