(Going off topic but...)<br /><br />Well, I speak only French. Alas. French is the only language into which I could translate the Dutch sentence with a sufficient confidence. It is a delightful sentence, you know, etiamsi foedas feminas non amas. Ceterum quomodo feminas foedas agnoscis ?

[quote author=ingrid70 link=board=3;threadid=335;start=15#2664 date=1059981688]<br />Hmmm, I did. What do you think of the story of Perseus and Andromeda, where the oracle tells Andromeda's father that she has to be sacrificed to the monster in order to save the country. [/quote]<br /><br />I'm ignorant of that story. :( Is this a story I will come across in BLD Latin for Beginners? <br />

[quote author=ingrid70 link=board=3;threadid=335;start=15#2683 date=1059995768]<br />BLD ex. 171. The story of Perseus and Andromeda is told in 4 exercises, this is the second one. The others are 168, 193 and 200. [/quote]<br /><br />That's way off me. I'm only on Ex 124. I'm so happy, We finally got to verbs! All is right.... :)<br /><br />I don't feel like I've fully absorbed is, ea, id and all the declensions, but I have the feeling I'll get more practice as I move forward and do future exercises which build on past topics.<br /><br />

yeah, is ea id come as you read more. I have a nasty habit of putting eorum instead of sua.<br /><br />You will be sick of verbs in no time! Especially passives! :o

I really loved your translation of the Latin fragment in the other thread about a picture of Old Latin (viewtopic . php?t=326;start=2410). <br />

<br /><br />I thought it was interesting how they used one set of pronouns for one's own and another set of pronouns for someone else's. Something to keep us on our toes!<br />
