"Would you like wine?"
Completely agree!! Have been leaving notes on this all over. Needs fixed!
You are right, but the sentence is still correct if it is taken as potential: "Would you like wine (if there is any)?"
True, but I'm not sure that's what is intended here? Perhaps I'm just being grouchy for no reason.
the '-ne' should be put at the end of 'vinum' because the sentence is specifically asking if we want wine, not if we want anything in general.
Are you saying the '-ne' suffix can be added to nouns as well as verbs? I thought it only modified verbs (but I don't know for certain).
It can go nouns, verbs, pronouns, etc. But it needs to be on the end of the first word in the question.
While some authors have broken it, I would say that yes, it is a rule. The enclitic goes on the end of the first word in a "yes/no" question,
"-ne" means "-n't". Velisne == wouldn't.
"And would you like wine?" In latin looks like "velis vinum?", without -ne
