    TF lesson 25 workbook question

    Hi,

    On p. 200 of the TF workbook answer key (VII. Translation), #7 (She closed the door in order not to look at the crime) is translated "Jánuam clausit ne scelus spectaret." Should it actually be "scelerem" since it's the direct object? If not, please help me understand ?

    Thank you!

    Cari

    Hello,

    Scelus is a neuter noun, which means that its nominative and accusative forms are identical - this is true of every neuter noun and pronoun in Latin. So, scelus is accusative in this sentence!

      Thank you! I knew I must be missing something, but forgot that scelus is neuter.
