Nine days before the kalends of March

To-day we continued reading the dialogue 302.  Using the following process:

  1. Find all the verbs and conjunctions that connect them.
  2. Analyse the verbs: what are their stems, vowels and endings?
    Render each verb in English.
  3. Find all the nominative noun, if there be one.  This is the subject of the verb.
    Adjust your English rendering accordingly.
  4. Find all the accusative nouns, if there be any.  They are (most likely) the direct object of the verb.
    Add them to your translation.
  5. Account for any remaining words (like -ne).
    Complete your translation.
  6. Check your work.
