English term or phrase:since julia will speak clearly, she will be heard by the teacher
i have 3 phrases that want grammar that i have been unable to figure out for the past 2 weeks after looking through many grammar guides. The following sentences are the problems..
a. Since Julia will speak (loquor) clearly, she will be heard (audio) by the teacher.
b. The teacher will think (puto, putare) that she (Julia) is tired (fessus-a-um).
c. With the teacher listening (audio), Julia spoke beautifully (from pulcher-chra-chrum)
Explanation: A. The "Since" clause is what is known as a Cum Causual clause. This clause's verb must be in the subjunctive, and must be in the present, imperfect, perfect, or pluperfect. A subjunctive can never be in the Future. Sentance A is impossible. If you want to say "since Julia spoke clearly, she was heard by the teacher." it would be "CUM JULIA CLARE DIXERIT, EA A MAGISTRO AUDITA EST"
b. "MAGISTER PUTABIT, EA FESSA ESSE"
c. It is easier to say "when the teacher was listining..." which is "CUM MAGISTER AUDIVERIT, JULIA DIXIT PULCHE"
However, you should know that girls did not attend school. Nor were they citizens.
Sorry it took so long for someone to respond. I only recently joined Proz and only just noticed your query.
