LMAO, this sentence gives off the impression that neither Columbus nor the vikings were the first to discover America!
I love this! Now we finally know we are not talking to toga-clad Livia and Stephanus through a time machine, but to present-day geeks who love dead languages just as much as the next guy. :D
Ah, I hear the Roman province of California is lovely this time of year. I want to see Caligula's house in Beverly Hills.
In the absence of a question word. :)

I seem to remember that the "-ne" question type implied a sort of question that tries to seek a yes response. I translated this as "Do you not live in California?" and it was marked incorrect. Not sure if this is an acceptable translation or maybe I'm confusing the "-ne" ending with one of the other question types.
-ne is the one without implication. The one that implies the yes response is nonne, and the one that implies the no response is num.
I know it's difficult to talk about "immersion" when you're learning (or refreshing) a 2000-year-old language via electrons piped across oceans in metal tubes, but hearing her say "California" in her native accent completely shatters the illusion.
