Re: Loci Immutati Thread

Hi, but I really don't know how "quid consili (sic?) ceperis" becomes "what design was there which was adopted by you" For the genitive consilii , it's just that Latin uses the genitive with certain neuter pronouns and adjective (quid, nihil, tantum, etc.), where you wouldn't phrase it that way in ...

Loci Immutati Thread

I hope this isn't too presumptuous of me as an only very occasional poster and a "TextKit Neophyte," but I thought I might start a thread dedicated to questions about the Loci Immutati. I just started on Immutati #5, and I guess I have a question about syntax in actual Latin. So far, I'v really flub...

Re: Help on Loci Antiqui 6

I don't know how much help you're looking for, but maybe it would help to reorder it as Quis enim diligat aut eum quem metuat aut eum a quo se metui putet? Your second translation with starts out right with "Who indeed would either esteem him whom he fears". For the second part, putet is indeed in ...

Help on Loci Antiqui 6

Hello, I'm a self-studier trying to do all the passages in Wheelock 1 before I move on to the reader. It's going slowly since I finished the 40 chapters, I'm afraid. Anyway, for whatever reason, I am really stuck on the following sentence in Wheelock's Latin Loci Antiqui 6: Quis enim aut eum diligat...

Hmm. I hope it helps, because I just ordered both books. I've heard good things from several other people, but they were using it as a main text. This seems strange to me, having learned a bit from Wheelock's. I can't imagine not learning the grammar first. But I hadn't thought about using it along...

Hello All --- I'm a first time poster who just registered. This seems like a really neat idea for independent learners of ancient languages such as myself. Eventually, I'd like to teach myself ancient Greek as well as Latin, but for now I have to be satisified with the work I am doing on Latin. I am...
