Quomodo haec res dicere?

Postby Quis ut Deus » Tue Aug 31, 2010 7:37 pm

Salvete amici amicaeque!

Quomodo latine "The primary industry of the city is agriculture" dicere possum?

Id scripsi:

"Negotium maior urbis agri cultura est."

Et quomodo "The city is also famous for its strawberry and cattle industries as well" dicere?

Scripsi:

"Urbs etiam nota est ob res fragariae et pecoris"

Gratias vobis ago et valete!

I can't actually answer your questions, but I do have a small correction:

Quis ut Deus wrote:"Negotium maior urbis agri cultura est."

"Maior" doesn't agree in gender with "negotium". The correct form is "maius".

I would translate thus, for what it' s worth: // Ità vertam, quod forsit tanti non est:
"Agricultura est negotium urbis praecipuum. Amplissima quoquè est urbs ob culturam et arbuti (seu fragorum) et pecorum (seu negotium pecuarium)."


But note that it is better to say not "also...as well/quoque...et...et" but "in particular/seorsim", since the strawberry and cattle industries are themselves agricultural.
Cum culturae fragorum et pecorum in agriculturâ includantur, "seorsim" non "quoque" ut adverbium praeferendum est.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
