Below you will find some simple materials to help you build up to the exercises in Croy. The materials to help you with the Practice Sentences are on a separate page.
As you will see, Croy's Practice Sentences are usually rather long and often have several parts. In order to help you get ready for Croy's practice sentences, here are some simpler sentences, grouped according to the type of syntactical features that you can find in them. The sentences are shown below without English translations; there is a separate page with English translations for you to consult as well.
You might also want to review some of the sentence types from the previous lessons:
The sentences for this lesson focus on the use of the personal prounouns, which decline like nouns according to number (singular and plural) and case (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative).
|Personal Pronouns in the Nominative||(the use of nominative case pronouns is emphatic, since the information about the subject of the verb is already conveyed by the verb)|
|ἐγὼ πιστεύω.||(the verb already tells us that the subject is first person singular, so the use of the pronoun is purely for emphasis)|
|σὺ εἶ ὁ ἄγγελος τῆς ζωῆς.||(the verb already tells us that the subject is second person singular, so the use of the pronoun is purely for emphasis)|
|Personal Pronouns in the Genitive|
|οὐ βλέπεις τὴν βασιλείαν μου.||(notice that this is an enclitic form of the pronoun, without an accent mark of its own)|
|αἱ ψυχαὶ ὑμῶν ἔχουσιν ἁμαρτίαν.||(the second person plural pronoun does not have enclitic forms; they are always accented)|
|Personal Pronouns in the Dative|
|ἡ ἀγάπη τῆς ἁμαρτίας μένει ἐν σοί.||(notice the accentuation of the pronoun following the preposition)|
|Personal Pronouns in the Accusative|
|θέλει ὁ κύριος σῴζειν σε.||(notice that the personal pronoun is an enclitic form, without an accent mark of its own)|
|ἡ ἀγάπη τοῦ θεοῦ σῴζει ὑμᾶς.||(the second person plural pronoun does not have enclitic forms; they are always accented)|
