Temporal clauses I – when(ever)

This chapter presents all instances of someone preventing someone else from doing something: Note that a verb of prevention is present, specifically: prevent, prohibit, forbid. The action or state that is prevented is expressed in English by from + a participle, with the subject of the participle being in the accusative. The verb forbid may also take a dependent infinitival phrase. Latin prevention sentences consist of a verb of preventing, the most common being. These verbs introduce a dependent clause indicating what is prevented. The verb of the dependent clause is in the subjunctive, following the sequence of tenses. The chapter also presents matching exercises with unedited Latin excerpts and rough English translations. A short reading relating to the adventures of Hercules is provided. These readings give the course a strong sense of narrative cohesion, providing opportunities to develop comprehension and translation skills.
