    Third Form Latin, Unit II Review

    Hi! We are back at Latin after a summer break. The wheels are a little rusty but starting to turn. We have a few questions about VI. Translation A section.

    5. Felices urbem Romam habitant. Why are Romam and urbem both in the accusative case?

    6. Give water to the weary. Da aquam defessis. Why is defessis in the ablative? Is it an ablative of agent?

    7. Imperator multa suis dedit. We had no idea what "suis" is...we are pretty sure that has not been used before now. Can you explain it, please?

    Thanks so much!

    Amy,

    Glad to help!

    5. Romam is an appositive, naming the city.

    6. Defessis could be ablative, but it could also be dative. Because the verb is a verb of giving, the dative (indirect object) case would work better.

    7. Suis is not taught until Unit 3 of Third Form, but we accidentally included it here. Suis would be translated as "his" in this sentence, but don't worry about it right now. Sorry we missed that.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

        Another question about this review lesson, in Translation B:

        In no. 3, why is the word is "frumentae" and not "frumenti," as frumentum is neuter?

          That is a typo. It should be frumenti. Good catch!
