what is a verb of rest?

Salvete,
Wheelock's text suggests 'sub' + ablative for verbs of rest. What are examples of these? I'm guessing verbs of motion would be walking, running, etc...

Re: Pronunciation of Latin

Salve Silvermage If you google youtube, Wheelock's latin, there is a video for each chapter that shows the word while someone reads it. To work on pronunciation, it can be helpful to sing in latin, regardless of one's singing ability. Not only are you trying to copy the musical tones you hear, but y...

Re: pacem relinquo or pace relinquo

Hello Callisper, I agree with your comment about ‘assuefaction to the mind-set of an ancient civilisation’, and I would also add, to the mind-set of a modern culture and language as well. I’m not sure my phrases were nonsensical or that I did not properly understand them. I took ‘pacem relinquo’ to ...

Re: pacem relinquo or pace relinquo

Hello bedwere,
Yes, I do speak another language and I am aware of the sometimes hilarious phrasings that come from literal translations of expressions. My question regarding 'peace out' was more of an intellectual exercise. I was curious about how the phrase could be constructed.

pacem relinquo or pace relinquo

I'm learning about third declension nouns and came across pax, which of course led me to wonder how to say 'peace out' in latin. Online dictionaries generally agree that it means good-bye. Google translate came up with 'pacem relinquo' which I took to mean 'I leave peace'. Could one also say 'pace r...

magistri, magistrae

Salvete! I was translating the sentence 'Teachers, are your students able to be safe now?' I considered 'teachers' to be masculine (no mention was made that the teachers were women), plural, vocative, and so I used 'Magistri' however the answer key for the text used 'Magistrae' (feminine, plural, vo...

Re: why 'mala vitae' not 'malae vitae'?

Thanks Barry. I was reading it as 'a bad life'. It's all clear now.

why 'mala vitae' not 'malae vitae'?

Salvete! I was working on the following sentence 'Propter adulescentiam, filii mei, mala vitae non videbatis.' Why is it 'mala vitae' and not 'malae vitae'. I can see that vita is feminine and that is why mala was used. Thank you

simple songs in latin

Does anyone know of simple songs in latin either on youtube or in print format? I've listened to some Gregorian chants but I'm looking for something a little more lively.

Word order for nouns and adjectives

Salvete! Is there a rule governing whether an adjective precedes or follows the noun it is describing? Does it resemble French in that it depends on the adjective in question? Would 'the little brown dog' be 'parvis canis fuscus' and not 'parvis fuscus canis'? Gratis!
