Examples of Various Things

Here's a page to collect sentences that provide example of various syntactic and semantic and whatever-ic constructions in Latin.


The reason for it is that I'm always looking for more authentic examples of things to show students (like, say, ablative absolutes) and it's a pain to have to go hunt them down.


I'll keep them all in a database off-site (some day :-) so that they can be more easily called up. Please add examples and new categories too.


Some Guidelines

  • Watch out for duplicate entries.
  • Keep entries alphabetized.
  • Use unicode, if you can, to include macrons.
  • Include citations where known.
  • If you want to have English translations, please put them in italics.



Here's a page of sententiae to categorize.
