[Smt-talk] Gradus ab Parnasu

Dear Victor and anyone else who was confused by Stephen's posting:

I also did a double-take at the example, and the remark about the rules.
I then re-read the subject line. There is an irony in that preposition "ab" ("away from") that made me chuckle. But the ablative of Parnasus would be "Parnaso" (I think).

Hope this vindicates Stephen, though perhaps he has a different take...

Well you've certainly managed to confuse me. What rules did you have in mind? And from what planet? [*:| straight face]

A private student submitted the attached 1st species exercise to me last week. He certainly didn't break any rules, but I'm tempted to grade him down because my ear tells me there is too much contrary motion.<cntrpt.png> Still I don't want to confuse him. I'm tutoring him & he will be starting college next year. He wants to major in theory. Can anyone give me some advice?
