Summer Latin Institute - DAY 12, 3:21 p.m.

Who am I to say, but I thought my Unit 10 grammar lecture (my first of the summer) was a smashing success. Got through ablatives absolute, the "UNUS NAUTA" adjectives, ferĊ and its compounds, ablative of cause, and ablative or genitive of description in about 30 minutes, leaving a full 30 minutes for drills from the text book (Moreland and Fleischer), which is as it should be.

My colleague Aaron Shapiro led an awesome hour on Catullus 51, the adaptation of Sappho 31 ("That man seems to me to be equal to a god...").

More soon...
