Re: Flagrat domus nostra

Things that are important to me in my daily life are tomatoes, a snow shovel, my computer, and my car. I see not the slightest reason to find latin equivalents. That's totally up to you. sine inaequalitate augente is more English than Latin. First you have to learn how Latin says things. You are wo...

Re: Flagrat domus nostra

Since Latin has no comparable jargon you have to spell out what they are. (...) This is really too ambitious an exercise for you. I think you'll do well to use a guide to prose composition, if this is the sort of thing you want to do. Thanks for all the great comments you made here. I've just poste...

Re: Flagrat domus nostra

"And please note that those numbers do not include the aspect of equity, which is absolutely necessary to make the Paris agreement work on a global scale. Nor does it include tipping points or feedback loops like the extremely powerful methane gas released from the thawing Arctic permafrost." Ecce ...

Non intellego translationem Latinam. Neque autem textus Anglicus liquet.
Ergo translationem liberam faciam ut textus liquesceat. :)

Re: Vocabula novissima de rebus praesentibus

Quomodo dicam "permafrost"?

Primum in locutionem "terra congelata" converti, sed ut "sempervirens", "sempervivus" censeor "sempergelida terra/humus" aut substantivum "sempergelum" idoneum esse.

Re: Flagrat domus nostra

Hodie sequitur secunda orationis pars. Difficilissimae erant locutiones "tipping points", "feedback loops" atque "permafrost". Num melius consilium dare potes?

Re: Flagrat domus nostra

Tibi gratias ago. "commutanda" enim stultus error est. Deinde "carbo" pro "carbonium" usus sum. Postremum, locutiones "dimidio minor" et "dimidio major" didici, sed, ut scribis, "dimidio minuere" satis esse censeor.

Flagrat domus nostra

Salvete amici, Convertere incepi heri orationem Gretae Thunbergis clarissimam in linguam latinam. Saltem conatus sum. Sic incipit: "Flagrat domus nostra. Huc veni professum domum nostram ardere. Secundum CCNU (Consilium Climaticum Nationum Unitarum), nobis minus quam duodecim annos superesse post qu...

Thanks for your insight. I feel that quod would have the meaning of "I'm wondering that" while I wanted to express "I'm wondering why". Cicero used "miror cur" as well in Fam. 7.27: "miror cur me accuses".

Re: Plautus Amphitruo, Argumentum I

I would expect something like "tumultus inter uxorem et virum"

Is this a poetical dative or does the dative have here a function which I'm missing?

Plautus Amphitruo, Argumentum I

Salvete amici,

"Hinc jurgium, tumultus uxori et viro, donec (...) se Iuppiter confessus est."

Miror cur hic "uxori et viro" in dativo sint. (I'm wondering why "uxori et viro" are in the dative).

Thanks for any hints.

Curate ut valeatis.

Puto te debere genitivo plurali uti, non singulari.

Hic autem caelo sereno fruor.
Pluralis enim decet, consentio. Sed cur genitivum nec accusativum post "circa"?

Transeamus ad tempestatem. Mercurisque Jovis diebus caelum serenum erit cum temperaturis usque ad septem et viginti gradus. Veneris die post meridiem paulatim nubes fient procellae periculo surgente, tamen tempestas jucunda esse pergit, cum temperaturis circa viginti et quinque gradus celsiensis.

Introduction

Salvete, I've learnt latin for 13 years with a level that might be very mediocre for a living language. That were times where "speaking" latin was not a goal, nor producing latin texts. Now that my children started learning latin on their turn, I want to take my level a step further and be able to t...
