Constructio ad sensum

Post by kingbenlucas » Thu Dec 11, 2014 11:58 am

Dear Forum,

I came across this correction in my travels with D'Ooge:

Alius socii amici erant Romanis, alius Gallis
for
Alius socii amici erat Romanis, alius Gallis

Is this to be seen as a constructio ad sensum due to populus being a noun which implies plurality?
