OLLI Stony Brook FALL intro

Page history last edited by Thomas M Hayes 6 years, 8 months ago

Introductionem ad Romanorum linguam discendendam

 


                                                 

Fall 2016

 

10 a.m., SBS S218     

 At this time, we are scheduled to meet all the Mondays of the semester.

 

The chapters of the workbook will be posted here a week before they are needed.  

Each chapter will be accompanied by one or two simple flashcard exercises for learning vocabulary.

 

opus novum 1, Sept. 2016.doc

2nd declension noun list general.doc

 

 

 

1st class (9/26)

1. subject (a) and direct object (am) forms for 1st declension.

2. Use of the perfect tense: 3rd principle part followed by a "-t", translated "he______ed", (also "he has_______ed", "did he _______?")

3. Vocab for caput unum (I). Don't forget the vocabulary games indicated above.

4. Exercise A

 

Looking for more practice?  Use the handout--a list of 1st declension nouns-to write simple three-word sentences. You will need to stick with the verbs that we see in the chapter.     

                    Handout: 1st declension general noun list.doc

 

2nd class (Oct. 3)

 

Review first class

2nd declension subject (us/r) and direct object(um) endings

 

3rd class (Oct. 10) 

We finished the 1st chapter.

At this point we have learned:

-a, -us/r indicates a subject

-am, -um indicate direct object

-t indicatees a verb. thus far all verbs are built by adding -the the 3rd principle part, and are translated

          1. she/he/it_______ed

          2. she/he/it has _________ed

or       3. Did she/he/it_____________?

 

We have also seen the interrogative pronouns

           quis, who?     quid what?          as subjects

and     quem whom?  quid what?      as direct objects

-ne appended to the first word in a sentence,makes the sentence into a question.

 

4th class (Oct. 17)

Vocab Caput secundum

http://www.quia.com/jg/1571727.html

 

Start to examine epigraphs on tombstones

     HSE= hic situs est "here has been placed (the person)"

     DM(S)= dis manibus (sacrum)     "set aside for the spirits of the dead"

     STTL=sit tibi terra levis     "may the earth be light for (on) you"

      frater, germanus=brother 

     vix(it)=lived

     an(n(nis))=years; m(ens)=months, d(ies)=days

 

 

aetates.doc

EDR epitaphs          .doc

Michigan epitaphs.doc

 

5th class (10/24)

1.use of plural direct object

     -am becomes -as

     -um becomes -os

2. prepositional phrases: the use of some prepositions followed by the direct object form.  We will now call that form the "Accusative case".

3. Intransitive verbs: those verbs that do not require an object to convey a full idea:  Breathe, sleep, walk, jog.(Be careful some intranstivie verbs in English can be made to look transitive, but that doesn't generally happen in Latin.

Discussion of Romance languages

 

6th class (10/31)

Review of vocab chapter 2

worksheets for caput 2

Latin words in English for OLLI.doc

 

7th class (Nov 7)

We reviewed all the grammar thus far and wrote sentences using a handout with the vocab from capita 1-3. Opus novum Vocab 1-3 sorted.doc

We introduced and discussed the vocab of caput 3

For h.w., look at the explanation of purpose clauses and see if you can translate the first exercise (IIIA).

o.n. caput 3 Nov 2016.doc 

http://quizlet.com/2719594/opus-novum-caput-tertium-flash-cards/

 

8th class (Nov 14)

Caput 3 (continued)

Purpose clauses, imperfect subjunctive, and review of naming practices

We started IIIA, and you can do as much of it as you need

For h.w.: Exercise IIIB (even though the sentences are numbered), is actually a continuous "dialogue" with questions following answers which then engender more questions. If you can read through it, that would be great!

 

9th class (Nov 21)

Caput 3 (continued)

We finished (if that were possible) the discussion of classes in Rome. We checked Exercise IIIB together.

We started to look at another page of tombstones(from Aquileia)

EDR epitaphs          .doc

We will do the reading at the end of Caput 3 next time. If you read it ahead, then you will have a funny story to bring to the Thanksgiving table--the funny part comes at the end, so you will need to persevere.

 

Veeeeery simplified outline of Roman classes.doc

 

10th class (Nov 28)

We finished caput 3 by reading the first story from the Asinus Aureus .

We introduced caput 4 and the idea of  indirect statement. opus novum 4 nov2 016.doc 

We had a brief discussion of the word Triclinium and what it represented to the Romans.

Feel free to look at the sentences therein contained or even to try to translate the story "Rana et puella"

Next week is our last class, so be sure to keep track of any unanswered questions.

 

11th class (Dec 5)

We will continue with indirect statement in caput 4 and hope to get through the story at the end of the caput.
