Chapter 7, P&R #2

Postby Kimble » Wed Jan 31, 2007 5:37 pm

In Benissimus' answer sheet, the phrase "sine mora" is placed on the end of the translation:
The woman will warn...without delay

Is there a gamatical condition for this placement in a translation?

My transaltion tends to be more litteral:
The woman without delay will warn...

Thanks,

My understanding of adverb and adverbial clause placement were largely incorrect.

This is the answer that the publisher provides to teachers:

Femmina sine mora civitatem de insidiis ex exitio malo monebunt.

Without delay the woman will warn the state about the plot and terrible destruction.

There is more than one way to translate it, and your translation is one of the possible ways.

P.S. Why aren't you using the official answer key?

Forgive me my ignorance, but what is the official answer key? (A good time to ask, having reached lesson 22 :)).

There is a teacher's guide for the text book (which contains a complete answer key) and a answer key to the workbook, available on the publisher's website, although you need to email them to get permission to access it.
