The imperfect tense: supplemental.
Operatives, as previously noted, the easiest way to translate an imperfect verb is “was verbing.” However, there are other functions of the imperfect that slightly change meaning in order to more accurately convey what type of action is going on. Compare the following:
Continuous action in the past: she was walking / she kept on walking / she used to walk
Attempted action in the past: she tried to walk
Action started in the past: she began to walk
When encountering imperfect verbs, operatives should consider one of the many options available to see if a slightly different meaning increases comprehension.
Additionally, operatives should consider a small feature of Latin verbs. Often the subject will not be named in the sentence. This is especially true if the sentence continues to use the same subject from the previous sentence. For more information about subjectless verbs, please view this video briefing secured from latintutorial.com:
|afuit / abest||she/he was absent, away (past tense) / she/he is absent||verb|
|bellum / bellō||war||noun|
|frater / fratrem||brother||noun|
|puella / puellās||girl / girls||noun|
|rēs||thing, affair, matter||noun|
Operative, the Trojan War was the greatest of all myths for both the Greeks and the Romans. The Demiurge advises you to obtain LP bonuses by familiarizing yourself with its parameters, especially the origin of the war.
Achilleus and Odysseus are the heroes of the great homeric epics. Every Roman knew their stories (the Iliad and the Odyssey); you are advised to use those stories in your mission. You should pay close attention to the trick Odysseus and Diomedes pulled off in order to reveal Achilleus' disguise.
