Question:

With contracted verbs, will I have to learn new endings for each type of contracted verb?

Will S.
Answer:

Technically, yes, you would have to learn a new set of endings for each type of contracted verb. However, there is a trick that will allow you to merely manipulate the endings of the standard verbs, with which you are already familiar, in order to get the contracted endings. For verbs with and alpha contraction, the rules are as follows: α + ε/η = α (long) α + ο/ω = ω ι becomes subscript, υ disappears With epsilon contractions, these are the rules: ε + ε = ει ε + ο = ου ε + long vowel or diphthong = disappears With omicron contractions, these are the rules: ο + long vowel = ω ο + short vowel = ου ο + (any vowel) + ι = οι Once you know these rules, then you will be able to more easily conjugate any verb given to you with contractions, such as δηλοω.

Latin

Question:

How does the subjunctive work in Latin?

Will S.
Answer:

The subjunctive can either be used independently or dependently. Uses of the subjunctive dependently would be in subordinate clauses such as purpose clauses, the tense of which would be determined by the clause and the sequence of tenses (e.g. a purpose clause uses the present or imperfect subjunctive, depending on the tense of the verb in the main clause). Independently, there are three main uses of the subjunctive: a jussive subjunctive (Let us do X!), a wish (If only we could do X!) or a deliberative question (What are we to do?).

German

Question:

Where does the verb go in German?

Will S.
Answer:

A verb can be in one of three places: it can be at the beginning of the sentence if the sentence is a question, it can be the second idea in a sentence, or - if for example the sentence has a modal verb or is subordinated - the original main verb is placed at the end of the sentence or clause.
