you need to accept the different genders of the first three numbers. I spent some time trying to understand why you weren't accepting tria (which, being the neuter version of the number is surprisingly the most common in real latin). unus una unum duo duae duo tres tres tria

Thanks for that, I will add it in =)

I may not know the cardinals, but I at least nailed the ordinals.

Nice to see another Latin quiz! Got 'em all in the end, but I did have to stop and think about "eighth" for a moment.

I am comment number 6. Why am I banned?

Sextus always reminds me of Ecce Romani. What a great textbook!
Apr 22nd, 2010 at 03:28 GMT
OH ecce romani...

Hmmm - when I was at school, 8 was 'octem' - don't know if it's a UK/US thing, or if those pesky Ancient Romans have been changing their language in the past 40 years, but I reckon octem should be accepted...
Apr 22nd, 2010 at 15:24 GMT
@DerekH: Do you have a citation for that? Lewis and Short seem to think octem is not a word. Perhaps you're remembering things differently, or perhaps your teacher was terrible?
Apr 22nd, 2010 at 16:45 GMT
@magister - take your pick from:
(I'm afraid a bit of searching down the page will be required....)
And yes, my teacher WAS terrible, but not at Latin... ;-)
Apr 22nd, 2010 at 18:23 GMT
Lantin is NOT dead! WOOHOO!!!
Apr 22nd, 2010 at 18:23 GMT
I have to agree with DerekH, I also learned Octem.
Apr 22nd, 2010 at 23:15 GMT
@DerekH: I think they're all taking this from the same source, which was probably a result of a misspelling. Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar and my 2 dictionaries don't have "octem" as an alternate form. Additionally, I searched Perseus, and no text in its collection includes the word "octem." Your teachers probably made a mistake
Apr 23rd, 2010 at 02:32 GMT
@TJL/ DerekH: I agree. All of those sources look pretty suspect. Does anyone have access to the Oxford Latin Dictionary or the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae? I don't right at the moment, but perhaps a resourceful Sporcler with access to a university library? Again, my Lewis and Short Dictionary, B.A. in Latin, and M.A.T. in Classics (minus 6 credits, it'll be done by August) disagree that octem ever existed.
Apr 23rd, 2010 at 02:41 GMT
Looking at those sources, there's a lot of other things wrong. One of them is the insistence that the month of August was called "Sextus." It was always "Sextilis," until Augustus came along. This octem bit might be a similar sort of thing to the concept of a vomitorium. While the Romans didn't have a room set aside for vomiting, this myth has become SO ingrained into classical culture that many books will still make reference to it. The Romans did have vomitoria, but they were exits from large public buildings, vomiting the spectators onto the streets.
Apr 23rd, 2010 at 05:22 GMT
@magister: I can check TLL some point soon. It just so happens that I have access to it through a university library.
Apr 24th, 2010 at 18:07 GMT
I had no idea how many people used the book Ecce Romani until I starting Sporcling. I love it! And Latin apparently is not a dead language now! Woohoo!

You really realize something about yourself when the first number you think of is Virginti.
Apr 29th, 2010 at 23:19 GMT
@xeuorux: Vi-ginti. I wonder something about you when you insert an -r-.
May 4th, 2010 at 17:54 GMT
Am I the only Latin sporcler who DIDN'T use Ecce Romani? I really wish I had, too; Jenney's was not so great
Jun 3rd, 2010 at 01:13 GMT
put mille as a bonus (1000). BOnuses: Cardinal:eleven(undecem),twelve(duodecem), and 20(viginti). 100= centum
Jun 10th, 2010 at 00:21 GMT
@Kellz996: The decem changes to decim when it's combined with the other numbers. Undecim and Duodecim. I get what you're saying though. I'd like to see it go all the way to twenty. Then I can have my favorites: duodeviginti (18) and undeviginti (19).
Jun 11th, 2010 at 14:16 GMT
@TJL - I don't use ecce Romani. My class is on the Oxford Latin Course textbooks.
Jul 24th, 2010 at 21:02 GMT
Ecce Romani helped so much, by remembering sextus i got everything right! Yay!
Aug 31st, 2010 at 04:01 GMT
We didn't use Ecce Romani either, we used Wheelock.
Dec 9th, 2010 at 00:08 GMT
@TJL: BTW, I learned Latin initially out of Jenney's, but I've taught out of Ecce and Latin for the New Millennium.
