Does this look right

Postby pmda » Fri Dec 17, 2010 5:07 pm

Orberg LLPSI Cap. XXI has:

8. Quomodo Marcus matrem fallit?

To which I have written:

Id quod a Sexto scriptum est Marcus ipsum scriptum fuisse dicit.

I'm not sure about 'ipsum'. Should I have written 'se scriptum fuisse...' Or are they both wrong / right?

Both are wrong, I reckon, pmda. "Ab ipso" it should be.
Utrum, pmda, falsum est. Magis "ab ipso", nisi fallor.
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.

Or you could just reword:

Mārcus dīcit sē ipsum scrīpsisse id quod Sextus scrīpsit.

Thanks. I didn't think it was right. I was just seeing if I'd god to grips with syntax etc... clearly not yet!
