LESSON 80

NEW WORD nautae

MEANING to the sailor or for the sailor (indirect object form)

For indirect objects we use the third case, which is called the dative case. Nautae is the dative
singular form of nauta. Let’s look at the chart again and review the forms we know so far:

Notice that the dative singular looks identical to the nominative plural and the genitive singular. As
before, when you see a noun with the -ae ending you must use the context of the sentence to determine
whether it is nominative plural, genitive singular, or dative singular.

Use the dative case for indirect objects the same way you would in English. Consider the following
example:

Agricolae fābulam narrō (I am telling the story to the farmer).

In the exercises in this book, the indirect object will come before the direct object, as in the example
shown above.

EXERCISES:

1. Nautae fābulam narrō.
2. Poēta agricolae fābulam narrat.
3. Puellae poētae fābulās narrant.
4. Scapha nautae in aquā est.
5. Incolae īnsulārum in aquā saepe natant.
6. Schola puellārum in silvā nōn est.
7. Agricola es sed poēta sum.
8. Familia agricolae in casā est.
