Missed most of this week’s lecture due to unavoidable commitments. Being so late for a lecture (catching the last 20 minutes out of 180) gives a different spin on things: everyone else is mentally exhausted, you’re alert, but rather lost. Now I have some catching up to do, and some more vocab words to learn.
The fridge door currently has 34 different forms of the verb “I untie” on it; today’s lecture covered a new verb form – deponent verbs; and 34 more forms to learn, all in one hit. Spookily, there is a kind of pattern to it, or at least some broad similarities that help with memorisation, but it’s looking pretty daunting.
