Walk - substantive

Postby Banana tree » Sat Jun 21, 2008 6:17 pm

I have searched through dictionaries, but I only find verbs when I lock up walk. What I want to say is "a confused student's walk", discipuli turbidi <walk>. So what is the latin word for walk?

If I've understood your request, I would suggest ambulatio, -tionis or even deambulatio, -tionis.

(Con)turbati/turbidi discipuli (de)ambulatio.

Prefixes chosen depend upon your stylistic choices and the sense you want to give the text.

Aha. I see. I thought ambulatio was a verb. :oops:

Et incessus et modus ambulandi quoque.
