Exercise 111, Part 1 # 9

This one I found pretty tough.

New Latin Lati-English and English-Latin dictionaries

I want to ask you: Are there any Latin-English and English-Latin good dictionaries.
But don`t to ancient latin but modern.
I read sometimes new latin from internet for example from GREX, but sometimes I have problems because some words aren`t in my dictionary.
The same problem I have when I want to write in latin. Old wards are in many exelent dictionaries, but modern?

How do you say 'How do you say__in Latin?'?

First, multas gratias to benissimus for posting the Wheelock sentences.

Second, how do you say "How do you say ___ in Latin?"?

Here, I'll trade you Italian for Latin. This is how you ask the question in Italian:
How do you say "whatever" in Italian?
Come si dice "whatever" in italiano?

MVLTAS GRATIAS
