ASSIGNMENT: Memorize the vocabulary words above.
Deponent verbs are verbs which appear in the middle or passive form (which have already been learned); but are translated as though in the active form. This makes it essential that the student know which verbs are deponent in form, so that they can be translated correctly. A clue: when verbs are listed in the dictionary as the vocabulary words are, with a middle/passive ending, they are deponent in form, and should be translated actively.
