hi,
I'm a doing my first year of latin so this will be very elementary to you all.

I am stumped with trying to translate one word in this sentence:

Pericula belli non sunt parua

Everything is ok except I can't work out 'sunt' :shock: . any help would be *really* appreciated..

Thanks

That is the third person plural of the irregular verb esse "to be". Sunt means "(they) are".
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae

Thanks,

no sooner had I read and understood your reply, I then turned the page and found exactly what you wrote.
