- Perhaps this is obvious, but I am self-taught at this point. I want to get some basic understanding before I start paying a teacher. I have started reading Familia Romana.
I am still looking for the noun declensions, but I think I have discovered adjectives.
These words seem to correspond:
- insulae - magnae
- oppida - magna
- fluvii - magni
- oppidum - magnum
What I think I understand is that these words in the second column are adjectives and they always agree with the suffix on the subject or object they refer to. Is this correct?
I have found several variations of magnus: magna, magnae, magni, etc. I can't see it fitting it into any noun declension, because it's not a noun (just guessing)?
- Moreover, what does the following mean?
In capitulo primo Mille vocabula sunt
My attempt is:
In the capital city, 1000 primary languages are (spoken)? Written?
Not really sure what "vocabulary" means in this sentence.
