If I want to say, "I love my daughter" I think it would be Amo meam filiam. What about if I want to say something like "My daughter is," would it be mea filia est or mean filiam est?
Thanks in advance.
"I love my daughter"="Filiam meam amo." Correct. Placing the verb last is conventional, but any order is technically correct.Bene. In ultimo loco verbum ponere mos est, sed verba quocumque ponas licet.
"My daughter is" = "Filia mea est." The subject of a sentence needs to be in the nominative case. Using the accusative signals that your daughter is the object of the sentence (i.e., receives some action).Subjectum sententiarum casum nominativum regit. Si casu accusativo uteris, dicis filiam objectum sententiae esse (i.e., actionem patitur).
