LESSON LXVII THE IRREGULAR VERBS VOLO, NOLO, MALO • THE ABLATIVE WITH A PARTICIPLE, OR ABLATIVE ABSOLUTE . Learn the principal parts and conjugation of volo, wish ; nol5 (ne + volo), be unwilling ; malo (magis + volo), be more willing, prefer (§497). Note the irregularities in the present indicative, subjunctive, and infinitive, and in the imperfect subjunctive. (Cf. § 354.) a. These verbs are usually followed by the infinitive with or without a subject accusative ; as, volunt venire, they wish to come; volunt amicos venire, they wish their friends to come. The English usage is the same.^ . Observe the following sentences : I. Magistro laudante omnes pueri diligenter lab5rant, with the teacher praising, or since the teacher praises, or the teacher praising, all the boys labor diligently.

In this exercise use participles for the subordinate clauses. * Sometimes 

the subjunctive of purpose is used after these verbs. (See § 366.)
