fhmi/

On page 151, Mastronarde says: φημι... has enclitic forms in the present active indicative (except 2nd sing. φης). But on page 271, in the excerpt from Plato (Gorgias 456a-c), a sentence begins: fhmi\ de\ kai\ ei)s po/lin... Why is φημι accented on the ultima? Is it because it's at the beginning of ...

Thank you for the comments. The book wasn't entirely clear about when to use εις over the dative, although I suppose they never explicitly said the preposition could be used with people. Anyways, a good fact to know. Don''t know where those missing words went but I seem to do that a lot with preposi...

why would that be necessary? you can tell a nouns declension by looking at its entry in the back. if you take the easy path and don't learn how to read principle parts, then you are surely doomed to wallow in mediocrity!

In the English first person singular, the pronoun is "I," and the verb "to be," which is irregular, is conjugated here as "am." You mean to say, "I am wrong."

but by making herbam the direct object you are implying that he COULD eat it but does not want to. but canis can NOT eat herbam. its better to just leave herbam out or else put it in to a more appropriate case!

before correcting me about direct objects, you might want to think about what you are saying. is herbam receiving the action of eating or is it merely affected by the action? when you have come to your senses you will realise that est can NOT have a direct object because a canis can not eat HERBAM.

as Lucus no doubt noticed, est can not have a direct object. incidentally, that is why not everyone can love such a book.
