Building the Meaning: Reading with Attention to Cases How to read a Latin sentence: identify the case of each noun AS YOU MEET IT to decide what the function of the word will be in the sentence as a whole. As you meet each noun and decide its function, you will form expectations about what is likely to come later to complete the meaning of the sentence. Examples:

1. Servus currit. The first word we meet is servus. We know that it is the subject of the verb because we recognize that it is in the nominative case. The verb (currit) then tells us what the slave is doing. 2. Servus Davum conspicit. We go from servus (nominative=subject) to Davum and recognize that Davum is the direct object of the verb because we recognize it as accusative case. Davum also tells us that the verb in this sentence is transitive, because Davum is a direct object and direct objects appear only with transitive verbs. The verb tells us what the slave is doing to Davus.

3. Davum pueri vexant. The first word we meet is Davum. We recognize it as accusative case. The next word is pueri. We recognize that it is nominative, and therefore it is the boys who are doing something to Davus. The verb vexant tells us what they are doing. 4. Ramum arripit. We recognize Ramum as accusative case, and we know immediately that someone is doing something to a branch. Since there is no noun in the nominative case, the ending of the verb

indicates the subject (he/she) and the meaning of the verb completes the sense. Attention to Case Practice 1. Lupus puellas terret. 2. Puellae silvam amant. 3. Davum et servos pueri vexare non timent. 4. Pueros et puellas lupi semper terrent. 5. Servi lupos ex agris repellunt.

6. Nuntium pueri et puella in agris vicinis conspiciunt. 7. Ubi pueros nuntius salutat, Cornelia ad villam currit. 8. Matrem Cornelia statim petit. 9. Nuntium, inquit Cornelia, pueri in agris nunc salutant. 10. Necesse est, respondet Aurelia, cibum parare. 11. Cibum ancillae parant. 12. Cornelius, ubi advenit nuntius, eum salutat. 13. Epistulam Cornelius legit. 14. Aurelia nuntium salutat et Ecce! Cibum ancilla, inquit, portat. 15. Statim advenit ancilla, et cibum portat.

Building the Meaning: Nominative or Accusative Plural? How Do You Decide? In 3rd declension nouns, the ending of both the nominative and accusative plural is es. When you meet a noun with this ending, you cannot tell from the word itself whether it will be a subject or direct object. TO do so in the sentences below, you must first identify the case of the other noun in each sentence. Note the kind of logic modeled below these sentences: 1. Pueri clamores audiunt. -Since pueri is in the nominative case and is therefore the subject of the verb, clamores must be in the accusative case and therefore the direct object. 2. Pueros clamores terrent.

-Since pueros is accusative, clamores must be nominative. 3. Princeps senatores excipit. -Since princeps is nominative, we assume that senatores will be accusative. This is confirmed by the singular transitive verb excipit. 4. Principem senatores excipiunt. -Since principem is accusative, we assume that senatores will be nominative. This is confirmed by the fact that the verb excipiunt is plural. 5. Clamores matres audiunt. -Where both nouns end in es and the verb is plural, it is the sense that indicates that clamores is accusative and matres nominative.

6. Magnos clamores patres audiunt. 7. Magni clamores patres terrent. -The endings on the adjectives tell that clamores is accusative in Sentence 6, and nominative in 7. Nominative or Accusative? 1. Flavia arbores conspicit. 2. Hodie Flavia arbores ascendere vult. 3. Quod arbores Sextum nunc terrent, puer molestus ad villam redit.

4. Brevi tempore matres puellas revocant. 5. Puellae voces non audiunt. 6. Aurelia, Eheu! inquit, puellae arbores non ascendunt. 7. Matres puellas ex arbore descendere iubent. Writing in Latin 1. Cornelius is writing letters in the country house. 2. The boys run into the woods, because they* want (volunt) to climb trees there.

3. Suddenly they* hear a voice. 4. A messenger comes toward them and says, I am looking for Cornelius. 5. The emperor is recalling the senators. 6. It* is necessary to return to the city. 7. Cornelius wants to write many letters. 8. Marcus and Sextus watch many slaves working in the fields. 9. The messenger greets the boys. 10. The messenger is looking for Gaius Cornelius. 11. The messenger hands over a letter. 12. It* is necessary to return to the city immediately.

13. Sextus wishes to go to Rome, but Flavia cannot. Culture: The Roman Villa Cities Majority lived in insulae (apartments)

Davus (vilicus-overseer) ran the villa rustica in Cornelius absence Some landowners had tenant farmers Columella, On Agriculture I.VIIVIII

The owner should conduct himself civilly with his tenants, and speak affably, not haughtily, to them; he should be more concerned about their work than their payments of rent, because this offends them less and in the long run is more profitable. For the position of vilicus, a man should be chosen who has borne up under heavy work, one who has been tried by experience. He should be past young manhood and yet not be old, because older men think it beneath them to take orders from a young man, and an old man will break down under heavy labor. Let him be middle aged, strong, skilled in farming or at least able to learn. As for the other slaves, I

myself talk rather familiarly with them for it lightens their toil, and I even make jokes with them and allow them to make jokes. I also now make it my practice to consult them on any new work, as if they were experienced, so that I can come to know their abilities. Moreover, they are more willing to undertake a task on which they think their opinions have been asked and on which I have followed Villa urbana

city villa separate from the accommodations of the farm Could be very luxurious and take up nearly the entire estate Winter and summer apartments-oriented to the seasonal sunlight

Pliny the Younger Villa urbana near Laurentum described in a letter to a friend Villa maritimae=houses by the sea (mare) Pliny the Youngers Villa Urbana

Decorating Romans loved natural beauty and artistic representations of it Walls in city and country houses would be painted Pliny the Elder (uncle of Pliny the Younger) With pictures of country houses and landscaped

gardens, copses, woods, hills, fish ponds and canals, rivers, coasts, and any other scenery one could desire, and scenes of people strolling along or sailing in a boat, or traveling to the country in carriages, people fishing, fowling and hunting, or gathering grapes Pliny the Youngers villa urbana in Etruria

Opposite the dining room at the corner of the colonnade is a large bedroom. From some of its windows you look onto the terrace, from others onto the meadow, while the windows in front overlook an ornamental pool which is a pleasure both to see and hear. For the water, falling from a height, foams white in the marble basin. The bedroom is very warm in the winter, being so exposed to the sun, and on a cloudy day the hot air from the nearby furnace takes the place of the suns heat.

From here you pass through a spacious and pleasant changing room into the cold bath room in which there is a large bath out of the full sunlight. But if you want more space to swim in and warmer water, there is a pool in the courtyard and near it a fountain in which you can cool yourself if youve had enough of the heat. I can relax there with fuller and more carefree enjoyment. I need never wear a toga; nobody calls from next door. All is calm and quiet, which makes the place healthy, as do the clear sky and pure air. There I enjoy health of body and mind,
