Direct Objects Posted by on Mar 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

As promised, here are the answers from the previous post: (The answers will be after the colon)

(1) cōgitās (cōgitāre = to think) : You think, you do think, you are thinking

(2) dubitō (dubitāre = to doubt) : I doubt, I do doubt, I am doubting

(3) labōrāmus (labōrāre = to labor/work) : We work, We do work, We are working

(4) necātis (necāre = to kill) : You all kill, you all do kill, you all are killing

(5) pugnat (pugnāre = to fight) : He/She fights, He/She do fight, He/she is fighting

(6) spectant (spectāre = to watch) : They watch, They do watch, They are watching

Now we’re going to move on to some new stuff. Take a look at this sentence :

Spectō agricolam = I am watching the farmer.

Did you notice how agricola = farmer ended in -am? This is because when agricola is in the form of a direct object, or what we call the accusative, it’ll end in -am.

Here are other examples. Can you translate these by yourself?

(1) Convīvam necant (convivā = guest. Necāre = to kill)

(2) Pugnās nautam (nauta = sailor. Pugnāre = to fight)

(3) Excruciō poētam (poēta = poet. Excruciāre = to torture)

(4) Pīrātam iuvāmus (iuvāre = to help. Pīrāta = pirate)

Here are the answers:

(1) They are killing the guest

(2) You are fighting the sailor

(3) I am torturing the poet

(4) We are helping the pirate
