I was wondering, how to translate the sentence He entered the house through the backdoor. I came up with the following variants:
- Aedificium per posticam intravit.
- Aedificium posticâ intravit.
adrianus wrote:per porticam "through the backdoor" and porticâ "by the backdoor".
I would say both work, Carolus.
