Historiae Alexandri Magni: Geschichte Alexanders des Großen (Reclams Rote Reihe)

Lebendig und geradezu romanhaft schildert Curtius Rufus den Feldzug Alexanders des Großen. Besonders eindringlich verfolgt er dessen Entwicklung vom kameradschaftlichen Heerführer hin zum orientalischen Despoten. Anekdoten zu fremdländischen Sitten und Beobachtungen zu Besonderheiten aus Natur und Geographie finden sich in dem Werk genauso wie dramatische Schilderungen, wenn etwa Alexanders Soldaten durch die Wüste marschieren, bis sie halb verdurstet den Fluss Oxus erreichen, oder wenn sie gegen die Kriegselefanten des indischen Königs Poros ankämpfen: All dies macht die »Historiae Alexandri Magni« zu einer abwechslungsreichen Lektüre und damit besonders geeignet für den Einsatz im Unterricht.

Sample text

To put it concisely, definitions in Japanese can only be done with です/だ, and existence can only be done with いる/ある. 犬です。 It is a dog. 本だ。 It is a book. 34 しかく 本は四角いです。 Books are rectangular. どうぶつ 犬は動物 だ。 Dogs are animals. 2. aru (again) We're not quite done with ある yet, because ある is also used in the role that in English is taken by "to have" in sentences like "I have a radio". In Japanese, you don't say you "have" something, but that "something is with you". For instance, if I want to say that aside from my portable radio I also have a radio at home instead of saying "I have a radio at home too" I would say "there is a radio at my house too": うちもラジオがある。 I have a radio at home too.

Irregular conjugating verbs - 変格活用動詞 Japanese has a well-counted two irregular verbs, and of the two, one is actually irregular in a rather unexpected way. So let's do that one first. く kuru, 来る, is the verb used in Japanese to mean "to come", and if viewed in its kanji form seems to be a regular 一段 verb except for the 命令形. However, if we look at how the kanji is pronounced through its bases, we suddenly see it's doing wildly strange things, actually changing reading for the kanji, rather than for inflection kana: 未然形 連用形 連体形 已然形 命令形 kanji form 来 来 来る 来れ 来い pronunciation こ き くる くれ こい As an added irregularity, unlike 一段 verbs the grammatical and everyday 命令 形 are the same for this verb.

Ichidan conjugating verbs - 一段活用動詞 いちだん While in modern Japanese there are only 一段 verbs, the name doesn't make a lot of sense unless I tell you a little about classical Japanese. In classical ごいちだん Japanese, there are actually four verb classes contrasting to 五段 , namely the かみいちだん しもいちだん 上一段 verbs (upper single grade), the 下一段 verbs (lower single grade), the かみにちだん しもにちだん 上二段 verbs (upper two grades) and the 下二段 verbs (lower two grades). The reason they were called this is because of how their verb stem changed in the various bases.
