    Fourth Form Lesson 7 question

    Hello,

    In the workbook on worksheet 6, section XII, sentences 1 and 2 use oppugno instead of pugno to translate fight: is either verb acceptable? I hope this makes sense. Thank you!

    Technically, oppugno means "to fight against" or "attack" as it comes from a combination of pugno ("fight") + the preposition ob, which here means "against." In other words, oppugno is a prefixed verb. Since the original sentences used "fight," it would have been clearer if the key had used pugno, and we'll use pugno instead in a future printing. Henle tends to be a little looser when it comes to translating.

    Short answer: they're different, but similar.

    HTH!
