The gerundive of intransitive verbs is often used impersonally (page 174) Intransitive verbs (i.e., verbs that do not take a direct object; e.g., verbs of motion) are used impersonally. In this event, the gerundives end in – ndum, and the helping verb is singular (est, erat, erit, fuit, sit, esset): Nōbīs eundum est. = We must go. (literally: there must be a going by us.) Puellīs festinandum erat. = The girls had to hurry. (literally: It had to be hurried by the girls) Nunc est bibendum = There must now be a drinking (i.e., Let’s make a toast. Famous poem of Horace) Hīc omnibus puerīs manendum erit. = All the boys will have to stay here. (There will have to be a staying by all the boys.)
The gerundive showing purpose as the object of curo, mitto & do, dare (page 174)… -Sometimes the gerundive agrees with the object of special verbs showing purpose or intent, e.g., curāre, dare, mittere (see 52.2): Domum magistra discipulum puniendum mīsit. = The teacher sent the student home to be punished. Augustus ludōs Capuae celebrandōs curāvit. = Augustus arranged for (took care to (have)) the games celebrated at Capua.
