Cser doesn't mention any patterns of variation, but he does offer a phonological analysis: Vowel deletion after [s] One minor point of complication involves s-final perfective stems excluding -ls- -rs- combining with is-affixes. On the face of it this looks like the loss of an [is] sequence specifically after [s] in these particular constructions as is the tradition, see Leumann, but it is more economical to analyse the disappearance of the vowel as being the same allomorphic variation as that seen after vowel-final stems, and the disappearance of [s] as resulting from an independently motivated phonological process of degemination, because in this case we do not need any extra processes — apart from stipulating the somewhat odd context [s] for the otherwise postvocalic morpheme variants.
The Aeneid Of Virgil: A crowd of chiefs inclose the godlike man, Who thus, conspicuous in the midst, began: Now follow cheerful to the trembling town; Press but an entrance, and presume it won. Fear is no more, for fierce Mezentius lies, 25 As the first fruits of war, a sacrifice. Turnus shall fall extended on the plain, And, in this omen, is already slain.
The last respect the living can bestow, 35 To shield their shadows from contempt below. These are my triumphs of the Latian war, Fruits of my plighted faith and boasted care!
A well-becoming, but a weak relief. Of oaken twigs they twist an easy bier, 95 Then on their shoulders the sad burden rear. The body on this rural hearse is borne: The lance of Pallas, and the crimson crest, Are borne behind: Peace with the manes of great Pallas dwell! Now suppliants, from Laurentum sent, demand A truce, with olive branches in their hand; Obtest his clemency, and from the plain Beg leave to draw the bodies of their slain.
All cause of hate was ended in their death; Nor could he war with bodies void of breath. Their suit, which was too just to be denied, The hero grants, and farther thus replied: You beg a truce, which I would gladly give, Not only for the slain, but those who live.
Nor wage I wars unjust: Turnus then should try His cause in arms, to conquer or to die.
My right and his are in dispute: In equal arms let us alone contend; And let him vanquish, whom his fates befriend. This is the way so tell him to possess The royal virgin, and restore the peace. Let Turnus leave the realm to your command, And seek alliance in some other land: Build you the city which your fates assign; We shall be proud in the great work to join.
Wildly they stare, distracted with amaze: Short sighs and sobs succeed; till sorrow breaks A passage, and at once he weeps and speaks: Beyond the goal of nature I have gone: Nor will I add new honors to thy grave, Content with those the Trojan hero gave: Then let thy own achievements be thy share.
I stay for Turnus, whose devoted head Is owing to the living and the dead. Joy is no more; but I would gladly go, To greet my Pallas with such news below. The Trojan king and Tuscan chief command To raise the piles along the winding strand.
Tears, trickling down their breasts, bedew the ground, And drums and trumpets mix their mournful sound. Amid the blaze, their pious brethren throw The spoils, in battle taken from the foe: But, in the palace of the king, appears A scene more solemn, and a pomp of tears.
Maids, matrons, widows, mix their common moans; Orphans their sires, and sires lament their sons. These are the crimes with which they load the name Of Turnus, and on him alone exclaim: His former acts secure his present fame, And the queen shades him with her mighty name.
Some new alliance must elsewhere be sought, Or peace with Troy on hard conditions bought.The Aeneid Of Virgil: Book 11 by Publius Vergilius Maro.. SCARCE had the rosy Morning raisd her head Above the waves and left her watry bed The pious chief whom double cares attend For his unburied soldiers.
