    Second Form Latin, Quiz 3

    In translate “Amici amicis dona dant.” The answer in the manual is “Friends give gifts to friends.” My daughter put “The friends give friends gifts.” Is this also correct? She thinks so and she knows more than me, but I want t make sure! Thanks!

    I would mark that as correct. The quiz did not specify which word order to use.

      Agreeing with Dorinda: English can express an indirect object through word order or the preposition to/for. Unless the directions require a specific one, students can give either. See the Translation Checklist at the beginning of the Student Workbook for more examples of acceptable variations from the key.

      HTH!
