Welcome to the fourth Latin lesson about the plural. This time we will learn about the singular form and what it looks like in the plural, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of emergency phrases.
The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look wehn converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Latin|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] unam linguam scio
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] scimus tres linguas
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] visitat multas regiones
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] nunc beati sunt
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] ea quinque calceos rubros habet
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun] panem fartum sine caepibus cupio
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.
Now it's time to practice your Latin by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
|English - Latin|
|Call the ambulance voca ambulance|
|I need a doctor opus est mihi medico|
|Where is the closest pharmacy? ubi est pharmacia proxissima?|
|Are you okay? sanus esne?|
|I am sick aegroto|
|Call the police voca vigiles|
