Salvete omnes,

I'm trying to find a verb for act or behave. I've come up with conversor, -ari, -atus, but it's only in one of my dictionaries, and one that is sometimes less helpful. Does anyone have any other ideas?

Multas gratias!

agere aliquo modo / tamquam aliquis
gerere me aliquo modo
esse aliquis (est bonus)
esse alicuius ingenii / aliquo ingenio (Catilina ... ingenio malo pravoque)
maybe there are more

You could also use ago in the same way to mean the same thing, se agere, to deport oneself. (I'm looking at Lewis and Short II.D.11)

I think I'll go with that. I eventually found another dictionary that listed that. Thanks!
