Almost correct, Kip: it's The Roman Senate and People:

I think that more correct will be:

Salvete :)

I think here magister, usus and optimus are in nominative case, so I would tranlsate:

The experience of all things is the best teacher.

Or maybe

The experience is the best teacher for all things.

Luke 22:44 bloody sweat

Hi This text is from Luke 22:44: [size=134] και γενομενος εν αγωνια εκτενεστερον προσηυχετο· και εγενετο ο ιδρως αυτου ωσει θρομβοι αιματος καταβαινοντες επι την γην [/size] Depending on the grammar can we conclude whether the sweat really was bloody or that this is only an illustration? It seems to...

Mute with L or R

Hi to everyone :) I am a begginer in latin and I am a little bit confused with the long syllables and the accent. According to D'ooge a syllable is long “if it ends in a consonant which is followed by another consonant”, however according to other grammar books this is true for "any two consonants (...

First, we can look at how similar phrases are used in both the septuagint and the nt. As i said before this is commom idiom to express certainty, especially in the septuagint. See Deu 30:18 for an example. How do you know from the septuagint that this is a common idiom? The phrase in Deu 30:18 is: ...

Re: Comma placement

In Luke 23:43 In other words is it more likely that "today" describes when "you will be with me" or when "I say to you". I think that when we have λε’γω σοι or σοι λέγω the message begins after that. At least in NT There is no sense to say "Truly I say today" But "Truly I say" (ἀμήν λέγω) is very c...

Singular noun with plural pronoun

Hi all, this is from Matthew 1:21:
[size=150]αὐτός γὰρ σῶσει τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν αὐτῶν
Well [size=150]λαόν is singular but [size=150]αὐτῶν is plural. Why is that?

Re:alternate endings in third declension

[quote author=Geoff link=board=14;threadid=752;start=0#7668 date=1065206880]<br /><br />That's the kind of thing I was looking for. Is there some rule or hint for recognizing when a word would receive a vocalized "N" as opposed to an "A"? Could you point me to a resource where this is discussed (on my elementary level)? <br /><br />[/quote]<br /><br />Well here is what I have found:<br /><br />1. When substantives with stems in -[size=150]ιτ, -[size=150]ιδ or -[size=150]ιθ are not accented on the ultima, the accusative singular generally has [size=150]ν in place of [size=150]τ, [size=150]δ, [size=150]θ. So [size=150]χάρις ([size=150]χαριτ-) is [size=150]χάριν.<br />When the accent is on the ultima the acc. sing. is [size=150]α. So [size=150]ἐλπίς ([size=150]ελπιδ-) is [size=150]ἐλπίδα. (This is according to W.H. Davis Begginers Greek Grammar)<br /><br />2. When substantives have stems in -[size=150]ι or -[size=150]υ, the accusative sing is -[size=150]ν. So [size=150]πόλις -- [size=150]πόλιν, [size=150]ἰχθύς -- [size=150]ἰχθύν<br /><br />3. In other stems ending wil be -[size=150]α or none. So [size=150]δαίμων ([size=150]δαιμον-) is [size=150]δαίμονα and [size=150]αἰών is [size=150]αἰῶνα<br /><br />So everything depends on the stem :D

Bert de Haan wrote:<br /> The example Mounce gives is [size=150]χάρις The accusative sg. is listed as [size=150]χάριτα. In a footnote he states: " In a few cases this word (and others like it) can have an accusative singular in nu ([size=150]χάριν )".

How many cases?

Hello,<br />In some grammars there are 3 cases added to the 5 well known.<br />They are:<br />ablative - with endings like genitive <br />locative and instrumental - both with endins like dative<br /><br />Are these real cases or just scholar invention?
