Another item: within one week I’ll have my time free to respond to requests. One issue I want to take up is the determination of which aspect to use in Latin in saying “Yesterday was Wednesday”, fuit or erat? I say fuit but the consensus on the listserv was erat. That makes no sense to me but my arguments had no weight and my quick search of my books did not reveal a clear principle, so I need to work on that. If worse comes to worse, I’ll go over to ASU library and look through their Latin books for a clear statement of principle and examples.
