Chapter 7 Datives

  1. 1. Datives<br />Chapter 7<br />
  2. 2. Formation of the dative<br />The endings for words of the Dative Case are in the table below:<br />Remember, just add these endings onto the base of the noun.<br />
  3. 3. The dative case is used for Indirect Objects<br />Indirect objects are words that tell TO WHOM or FOR WHOM something is given, shown, told, or done.<br />You will ONLY have an indirect object when you have an action verb and a direct object.<br />Not all sentences with direct objects have indirect objects, but all sentences with indirect objects must have a direct object.<br />
  4. 4. examples<br />You should look for indirect objects in sentences with verbs of:<br />givingshowing<br /> telling<br />doing<br />I gave the boy the book. <br />I showed the boy the game.<br />I told the boy the story.<br />I poured the boy a drink.<br />
  5. 5. Indirect objects in latin<br />When you see a word in the Dative Case in Latin in a sentence with a verb of giving, showing, telling, or doing, it is most likely an indirect object.<br />Homo pueripecuniamdedit.<br />
  6. 6. Translation of the dative<br />The easiest way to translate the dative case is to use the English words “to” or “for.”<br />In English this will look like a prepositional phrase, but that’s ok. It clearly shows a dative in Latin.<br />
  7. 7. Translation of the dative<br />Take a look at the sentence from before:<br />Homo pueripecuniamdedit.<br />The man gave money to the boy.<br />This sentence could also be translated as:<br />The man gave the boy the money.<br />
  8. 8. recap<br />When the main verb in a sentence is a verb of giving, showing, telling, or doing AND you have a direct object in a sentence, LOOK for and indirect object!<br />
