You're wrong! In the ecclesiastical pronunciation (the one they used and use in Vatican) it is like this, and ae is [e] (what you in English would say in "egg")... But in the restitute pronunciation (the one they used at the time of the Roman Empire and Roman Republic) ae is literally [ae]... Ae though isn't two syllables, because ae counts as one sound and you make it saying the "a" for shorter time and stressing the "e"
Yes exactly! It's kinda difficult to talk about pronunciation with English-speakers, as they're spelling is very different from other languages (I know they'd "write" the sound I mean with "e" like "air" lr something like that), so I apologize in advance...
In the Reconstructed pronunciation you do pronounce like "la-e-ti", but the "ae" is only one unic sound (diphthong)... Basically there are some sounds wich are made by a couple of vocals which do not make separated syllables, and consist in a unic dinamic sound in which the tongue changes its position (similar to when you say "same")... So "laeti" are two syllables, "laè-ti", and you should pronounce the "a" faster than the stressed "e"
Ebrias is the feminine accusative plural form. Used as the direct object with a feminine plural noun:
feminas ebrias video -> 'I see the drunk women'.
Ebrii has four uses:
masculine nominative plural: used with a masculine plural subject: viri ebrii feminam vident -> 'The drunk men see the woman'.
masculine vocative plural: when the speaker is directly addressing the masculine plural noun: Viri ebrii, ubi estis? -> 'Drunk men, where are you?'
masculine genitive singular, genitive has many uses but one is possession with a masculine singular noun: librum viri ebrii lego -> 'I read the drunk man's book'.
neuter genitive singular: same as the masculine genitive singular but for neuter nouns.
I don't think the last two are in use in the course currently (I only remember the course using the genitive for demonstratives).
