Present and imperfect subjunctives

Indirect questions are questions which are triggered by some verb of the head, such as think, wonder, know, ask, and which are themselves introduced by a question word. These do not end in question marks since the main verb is not forming a question. Only the subordinate clause is a question. They are therefore similar to indirect statement, which is also introduced by a verb of the head. They do not end in question marks since the main verb is not forming a question. This chapter also presents matching exercises with unedited Latin excerpts and rough English translations. A short reading relating to the adventures of Hercules is also presented. These readings give the course a strong sense of narrative cohesion, providing opportunities to develop comprehension and translation skills.
