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.

Example text

I’m called . . where where do you live? I live in street number do you have a telephone (number)? many Culture notes Surnames All Catalans have two family names (cognoms: usually the father’s surname first and the mother’s surname second) often linked with i (= and) and given together when appropriate. In this case Elena’s first surname (el primer cognom) is Pérez and her second one (el segon cognom) is Arnavat. In many situations, however, you will hear only the first surname being used. Telephone area codes All telephone numbers are preceded by the area code (el codi territorial) which must be used no matter where the call is made from.

Do you want my mobile? In this unit you will learn about: • • • • • • Asking people to repeat something Understanding short messages The present tense of estar ‘to be’ Possessive adjectives Adjectives in comparisons Superlatives Dialogue 1 Rachel wants to call her parents in England. RACHEL DANI RACHEL DANI RACHEL DANI Hi ha telèfon aquí? Sí, hi ha un telèfon a la sortida. És de monedes. Pots repetir, sisplau, més a poc a poc? Sí, és clar. És un telèfon que va amb monedes.

It is used as the standard way of saying what your name is/what you are called. In the dialogue we hear how to say your name, by saying em dic . . (= I call myself → I am called) and how to ask someone else what their name is in a formal way, by saying: com es diu (vostè)? ). The forms viu, visc are part of the verb viure (= to live) and té is from tenir (= to have). Like ser in Unit 1, these two verbs are irregular. There is a list of irregular verbs in the Grammar reference at the end of the book that you may find useful later on in the course.
