It's been a little while since I've taken Latin, so this may be a dumb question, but! Does the defective verb memini, meminisse have a participle form? Or would you be better off finding another verb if you wanted to translate something as remembering?

What's the context of your sentence? "remembering" is not necessarily a participle depending on how it's deployed. (Maybe this is only because it's coffee-o-clock and I haven't had the coffee yet, but I'm having trouble thinking of sentences that use remembering as a participle, and make sense.)

"She walked through the mansion, remembering the horrible sounds of the zombies that were responsible for the massive damage to it last August."

Yep, like that! (Although what I'm translating isn't nearly as interesting as zombie invasions ahaha)

Reminiscens.
But I'd rather use a sentence with cum: cum meminisset. Or simulac meminerat. Or cum recordaretur.

Thanks for the advice! I wouldn't have thought of that.
