    Third form Unit 2 Review Translation B

    Good morning.

    In Question 3: The huge ship will be full of grain and wine

    They answer is : Navis ingens erit frumenti et vini plena

    ​​​​​​
    Frumenti and vini are both genitive singulars of neuter words. I'm having trouble understanding why plena appears to be in the neuter plural.

    ​​​​​​thanks!

    Good morning,

    Plena is actually feminine singular and agrees in gender, number, and case with navis. Frumenti and vini are genitive singular because they are objects of the adjective plenus -a -um. Does that help?

      Michael...I was just coming to edit because I actually figured it out!!! It looks then like we are treating the word full like a predicate adjective: The ship is full. then what it is full.if would be written in the genitive. I was so.excited when the lightbulb went off! Thanks so, so much for your quick response!
