**6.Dardanidae contra turres ac tecta domorum**__if you mean "turres" and "tecta," yes__

7.culmina convellunt.his se,quando ultima cernunt,__if you mean "culmina" and "convellunt," yes ("cernunt" is too far away from the other two to count!__

assonance in l.7 and l.9**Which words do you consider as contributing to assonance?**
