Good day Latin scholars and enthusiasts,
I am a Latin novice - and that's giving me a lot of credit - who would like anyone's assistance with the Dative of possession. Specifically, in contrast to the phrase "Soli Deo gloria" - To God alone the glory, I would like to add - "the shame is mine."
Now apparently the dative of possession places accent on the MINE part of the possession, which is fitting, but I'm unsure of the noun/object that should accompany this form. Would it be correct then to say "dedecus est meus"? I.e. the nominative case for the noun dedecus?
Any comments are welcome. Thanks.
