Vergil Test 3 - Translating Infinitives and Syncopated Verbs

Here are some helpful reminders about infinitives and syncopated perfects that can be mistaken as infinitives:
* active: -āre, -ēre, -ere, -īre
* passive: -ārī, -ērī, -ī, -īrī (and deponents)
* verbs taking/often seen with infinitives include iubeo (I order), hortor (I urge), possum (I'm able), volo (I want), soleo (I'm accustomed), impersonal verbs like iuvat (it helps to do x)
* indirect statements (verb of the head + infinitive)
* syncopation (3rd principal part, not 2nd, & thus may have VLSUX)
