    Thank you!

    Thank you for taking the time to directi me to rule 478. Next time I'll consult the grammar book first, which I now see, has an index!

    Barbara,

    I'll do to you what I do with my students: answer a question with a question (they learn the answer better this way). What does Rule 478 in the grammar book say?

    Let me know if that helps.

    Thanks.

    Martin

    I answered "alienos," thinking that "foreign" modified "harbors" (masculine), rather than "cities" (feminine).

    Is there a rule as to which noun should be modified?

    Thanks,
