Right, as the title says, help me translate a few sentaces from latin to english, with word by word analysis if possible. If not, thats OK too.

Your help will be much appriciated.

Here they go:

1. Ars scribendi iam antiquissimis temporibus inventa est.

2. Romani ad bellandum semper parati erant.

3. Fabius dictator Hannibalis impetum cunstando/cunsdando (not sure which one it is, I cant seem to read my own handwriting) fregit.

4. Helvetii pocis causa legatos ad Caesarem miserunt.

5. Imperator Probus multa milia militum ad poludes siccandas in Panoniam dursit.

6. Philosophi de contemnenda morte saepe disputabat.

7. Caesar milites aquatum et frumentatum misit.

8. Atheninses legatos miserunt consultum Apollinem.

9. Multa faciliora sunt dictu quam factu.

10. Nefas est dictu senectutem miseram esse.



Thank you in advance, and I apologize for any spelling errors :)

1.The art of writing was already invented in ancient times.
2. The Romans were always prepared for war.

I'm too tired to do the rest. It's not that hard though.

Yeah, I'll graduate in May. Hopefully :D
You didn't study much Latin, now did you? :D. I mean, we have to read through some serious texts of Cicero, Tacitus and Vergillius and you get to do these stupid exercices?
