I started Collar's BLB a few days ago and I'm running into a confusing point that he never really explains/provides an example for in the section 50 exercises.

Here is the original English and my Latin sentence, without the marks for long vowels:

phobias

I read somewhere that the original prefixes for different types of phobias were in Greek. I was wondering if anybody knew what "decoy-phobia" would be. I used a free translation service, but it couldn't give it to me in English characters/spelled phonetically. δόλωμα

§150 Cornelia and Her Jewels (Concluded)

nota bene:

While some of this is subjective and "nit picking", I am strongly favoring
a more literal translation and trying to strictly use the definitions provided.


Proximum...
Key: "Close to...
tfm: "Next to..."

...non solum forma sua...
Key: "...not only for her form..."
tfm: "...not only for her beauty..."

Past, Present, and Future

Alright, this is something that has plagued me for a long time. As we all know, there exists this little thing we call time. Now, there are many different kinds of time. There is absolute time, apparent time (solar time), astronomical time, sidereal time, and space-time.

cordially,
