Unit 1 Drill - Section III (pg 32) - # 3, 5, 8
Translate into Latin.

#3: of women
M&F Answer Key: puellarum

puella = girl (vocab word actually introduced in Unit 2)
I believe it should be feminae.

#5: crown (object)
M&F Answer Key: corona

Corona would make it the subject.
Since they are asking for the object, I believe it should be the ACC, or coronam.

#8: they used to be afraid
M&F Answer Key: terrebant

Terrere = to frighten
I believe timere would be the correct verb, that is, timebant.

Mariae s.

Yes, feminae in the singular and feminarum in the plural. But of course, the most widely used word for "woman" is the 3rd declension mulier, mulieris, plural genitive mulierum.
