Reverse etymology

Hi All,

In my efforts to develop my beginner's vocabulary i, not surprisingly, find words with a clear relation to modern English the easiest. Dico, dicere; mitto, mittere are easy examples. Such words are so obviously linked to modern words i hardly need to look up the etymologies to verify them.

Russian young classical philologists

Plurality in translation

Hey everyone, my question is when translating sentences into Greek, with all the different plural cases, when do you use the plural and when do you not? For example, one sentence I have to translate is "But the slave says, "It is not possible to carry so many stones out of the field. So you help!" Now, "stones" of course is translated into the plural acc. b/c it's the DO. But, would you translate "out ...
