Second and Third Form Latin - week 12 update - December 1

Our grammar lesson today was to learn about prepositions that are governed by the accusative case.  There are a few prepositions (in and sub for example) that can take either case but the meaning is slightly changed.  In + ablative means in or on.  But in + accusative means into.  Typically prepositions that take the accusative case have some sort of movement involved.

Third Form Latin - In the third declension, there are adjectives with one, two, or three terminations.  There are no new endings to learn - just vocabulary!  Also, in order to finish the text by the end of the year, we will not be covering the unit reviews in class any longer.  Also, today we combined two chapters as one of the chapters is review.  We will also combine chapters on December 15th - and then the rest of the year should be single lessons.

Homework:
  • Re-read the text book pages 34-35; Third Form - 36-39
  • Workbook pages 61-65; Third Form - 78-89
  • Notecards + derivatives
  • Second and Third Form: Write two English sentences with accusative phrases and then translate them into Latin.  (try to include personal pronouns, newer vocabulary, and have them be complex sentences that might also include genitive and dative forms)
  • Translate the following sentence into Latin: We will have dinner around the table.
  • Review, review, review!
