"O vir magne, populum Romanum serva." of which the meaning is clear. My question deals w/ the word, "serva, which I [assume] to be a verb."
Cassells says, "serva -ae, -f. see servus"
Under servus I find, "servus, adj ..."
I am expecting to find a verb. Can someone tell me what I am missing?
Damn it, I haven't picked up my latin book in three weeks, a cursorary glance read:
O great man!, serve the Roman people. OR the Roman people serve.
