Salvēte omnēs! Welcome back to Latin for Wikiversity. Here you can peruse a new lesson in Latin, in a simple format. If you would like to catch up, you can find a directory of lessons, a classified vocabulary list, and Memrise courses at the links on the right.

Last time we added some very common Latin verbs to those we have already learned. We’ll continue with a few more new verbs today and for the next few lessons.

New Vocabulary[edit]

Latin English Audio (Classical) Notes
quō (adv.) where to, where, whither With motion toward
placeō, placēre, placuī, placitus, 2 please, be pleasing to   Used w. dat.
This may be a more frequent usage to express liking for something than the verb “amo,” but it requires use of the dative. In this way it is very similar to Italian, and to the French “S’il vous plait”.
, īre, īvī / iī, itum (irreg.) go  
volō, velle, voluī (irreg.) am willing, wish for, want
Frequently used with infinitive, although we will limit it this lesson.

Only three new verbs, but lots of sentences this time! Don’t be discouraged if it takes a while to master some of these forms. Most Latin verbs are more regular, but these are used frequently. We’ll keep adding new verbs for a few more lessons. Also, as you may guess, sometime in the future we will need to have a separate lesson on infinitives. Valēte!
