It is not possible to carry so many stones out of the field.
Johny Ze wrote: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 of the field" in the plural, to keep it in agreeance with stones? Does this question make sense? Any advice please! Thanks!
