<i>novi oppidi incolae</i>
This can be translated in two different ways, can't it?
<i>the new inhabitants of the city</i>, where novi is nom. pl., or
<i>the inhabitants of the new city</i>, where novi is gen. sg.
But how do you know which one is correct? From the context, both meanings are possible.
It isn't really too important, I guess, as the difference in meaning is slight, yet it's still bothering me.
