I'm looking at my grandfather's first year Latin book, and I'm confused with one of the sentences:
Now I think this sentence could mean either:Puellae aquam poētae (for the poet) portant.
orThe girls are carrying water to the poet. Using the Dative declension.
But I don't understand how it could mean for the poet.The girls are carrying the poet's water. Using the Genitive declension.
Unless, "Puellae" and "aquam" are going together, in which case it would mean:
Right? Ideas?They are carrying the girl's water to the poet.
