Re: Ch. 2 Wheelock's Sentence Translation

It seems to me that you don't know the first declension and the first conjugation. You must go back to the grammar part and learn those first. Otherwise your effort is useless.

Hello!!
"Melius apud bonos quam apud fortunatos beneficia collocantur."
Is melius nominative or is beneficia the actual subject here?
If beneficia is the subject, then melius would be somekind of adverb?
"The benefits are better put between on the good men than on the lucky men. "
You got it.

Re: The Road to Serfdom in Cartoons

Is a serf a δοῦλος or servus? What about θής? (Εἵλως seems wrong). Or mancipium for the Latin? I'd rather use common words and δοῦλος seems to be more common than θής . Same for servus vs. mancipium . Ἡ πρὸς δουλείαν ὁδὸς ἐν εἴκοσιν "in 20 <steps>"? :twisted: i.e. correct the accent. I stand correc...

Thank you for the explanation. I haven't tried your other dictionaries yet. For composition I use SMITH & HALL. I'd say it is useful to have synonyms.
