    Ludere Latinae Lesson 14 grammar crossword

    My son and I were working through the lesson 14 grammar crossword today and I am stumped on 6 across “a crime”. I don’t remember seeing crime in the forms series, but especially not in Latina Christiana. I don’t see it in the English to Lain section of the teacher guide. I thought maybe peccatum or debitum, but neither fit. My daughter looked it up in her Latin dictionary and none of the words they gave for crime sounded even slightly familiar. Any help? I don’t typically use the answer key for these and I don’t know where it is. Thanks!

    Plans for 2021-2022
    15th year homeschooling, 12th year with Memoria Press
    DD College Freshman
    DS 10th grade - Lukeion Latin and Greek, Vita Beata Greek Dramas
    DS 8th grade - Vita Beata Literature
    DS 3rd grade - Vita Beata Literature, Right Start F, First Form Latin


    While it can indeed be translated as crime, the word culpa (which is in fact the desired word here) is not given this translation in LC or LL. So, a better clue for 6 Across would be "a fault (acc.)". I'll add this as a note for our next reprint, as you're unlikely to be the only one confounded by this!
