This video is a sequel to rule 55, since the adjectives dignus and indignus take an ablative of respect (also known as the ablative of specification), to show what something is worth (or unworthy) of. I hope this video is worthy of your time, and I'm worthy of your views!

I've made some pretty major changes at my site over at Aeneid.co. This video explores some of the updates you'll see when you visit this website in my suite of digital offerings. Aeneid.co helps you read Vergil's Aeneid in the original Latin with videos, strong vocabulary tools, and more.
Just a week ago, I released a tool that helps you focus on core Latin vocabulary, the most common words that show up in Latin. I'm happy to announce a update to the tool that gives a user rating (a time independent measure), item analysis, and correct answers. Enjoy!
The adjectives dignus, indignus, aptus, and idōneus can take a relative clause with the subjunctive - this is really an extension of the relative clause of characteristic, which we will explore in greater detail in this video. While poets might prefer to use an infinitive phrase, this specific type of relative clause is common in prose.

Eager for the new 2020-2021 LatinTutorial season? In this video, I talk about what's coming and what already exists (just to remind you) for this next school year. For more, check out my sites at latintutorial.com, aeneid.co, and hexameter.co!
I've added a new activity over at hexameter.co called Rapid Scan. My goal is to help create a natural ability at scanning lines quickly and naturally. You have five minutes to get as many lines correct as you can (don't worry, you get easy lines to start), and your attempt is over when you get three lines incorrect. Subscribers get unlimited access to Rapid Scan, and other users are limited to just three attempts each day. Climb the charts! Challenge yourself!
In the last two videos, I've been covering verbs that take two accusatives, and this is the final video on that topic: verbs of teaching and showing can take two different objects, one of the person being taught/shown, and one of the thing being taught/shown. I am teaching you (acc of person) Latin (acc of thing).

The last of our 91 rules discusses the subjunctive of attraction. In short, when a subordinate clause depends on another subjunctive clause, the verb in that clause will likely be in the subjunctive as well. That said, this isn't a hard and fast rule, and you can easily find examples in Latin that don't follow this rule.

If you want to buy something for a couple of bucks, in Latin you'd use the ablative case. This is similar to a use of the genitive, called the genitive of value, although we use the ablative for more definitive prices. And in this video, we learn about the favorite phrase of many a Latin student, floccī nōn faciō, "I don't give a hoot" (or "I don't care at all"). Let's hope you do about Latin and this video!

As we continue exploring indirect speech in Latin, it's important to think about the tense of the verb / infinitive in an indirect statement. Infinitives have only three tenses, and we need to think about these tenses as reflecting relative rather than absolute time. So a present infinitive shows an action happening at the same time as the head verb, a perfect infinitive an action has is already complete with the head verb occurs, and a future infinitive an action that has yet to happen.
