Cum Causal Clauses
Introduces a reason or gives a cause. If the verb in the main clause is in the present or future tense, the present or perfect subjunctive is used in the casual clause; if the main verb is in a past tense, the imperfect or pluperfect subjunctive is used in the casual clause (ie: cum nox iam appeteret, ad speluncam devertit: since night was already approaching, he turned aside to a cave).
Future More Vivid Conditions
Expresses strong probabilities or certainties with reference to the future. The if-clause has a future or future-perfect indicative and the main clause has a future indicative. In English, the if-clause should always be translated in the present tense. (ie: si id dedero, centauri me interficient: If I give it, the centaurs will kill me). The future perfect must be used in the if-clause when the action of that clause is thought of as having been completed prior to the action of the main clause (such as in this example).
Ad + Noun in the Accusative to Express Purpose (Accusative of Purpose?)
Ad + Noun/Noun Phrase may express purpose (ie: ad salutem - to safety/for the purpose of creating safety)
Dative of Purpose + Dative of Reference.
The Dative of Purpose denotes the Purpose, and the Dative of Reference denotes the person/thing which the Purpose concerns (ie: cancer ingens auxilio Hydrae venit - The huge crab came for the purpose of aid with reference to the hydra)
Dative of Possession
Noun/Pronoun in Dative + Form of sum indicates possession. The thing possessed is the subject of the verb, and the person/thing that posssesses it is in the Dative Case (ie: cui novem erant capita - to which there were nine heads)
A neuter verbal noun that appears in the Gen, Dat, Acc, and Abl Singulars only. Translated often as verbal nouns in English (ie: of preparing; to or for preparing) Gerunds of deponent verbs are the same in form as those of regular verbs (ie: complectendi: of grasping). One such example is "respirandi facultas" which means means OF BREATHING. Note the "-nd" in all forms.
Present Active Infinitive
Second Principle Part of a verb. "to ______"
Present Passive Infinitive
Second Principle Part -'are' + 'ari'
N.B. In 3rd and 3rd IO Conjugations the added 'ari' becomes just an 'i'
A complex sentence that refers to a general truth or makes a general statement about something that happened in past time takes the IMPERFECT INDICATIVE in the main clause and the PLUPERFECT INDICATIVE in the subordinate clause. e.g.: "Pythia consilium dabat eis qui ad oraculum venerant" which means Pythia always gave advice to whoever came to the oracle. The words 'always' and 'ever' emphasize the generality of the statement being made.
Passive in form but active in meaning. Comes from "deponere" so it means the verbs 'put aside' their active forms and appear only in the passive (with active meanings).
Ablative of Accompaniment
Cum + ABL often expresses the idea of accompaniment.
(Erginus CUM OMNIBUS COPIIS in fines Thebanorum contendit: Erginus hurried into the territory of the Thebans WITH ALL HIS FORCES.)

Dative of Purpose
A word or phrase in the DATIVE may indicate the purpose for which an action is carried out or the end that it has in view (ie: he set a day for the [purpose of the] sacrifice)
Dative with Special Intransitive Verbs
The meaning of many intransitive verbs such as 'studeo, studere' is completed by a word or phrase in the DATIVE (ie: huic arti minus diligenter studebat = he was applying himself less diligently TO THIS ART)
Ablative of Degree of Difference
A noun, adjective, or phrase in the ablative may indicate the degree of difference with comparative adjectives (ie: the woman was taller than the man BY A FOOT) (ie: paulo post = later BY A LITTLE)
