    Second Form Lesson 23 worksheet

    Ludi magistri a discipulus laudabantur.

    Answer key says: The school's teachers were being praised by the students.
    Could it also be: The teacher's schools were being praised by the students?

    How can we tell which is nominative plural and which is genitive singular?
    Thanks!

    It could also be your second translation. In this case, context would determine which word is the subject (nominative plural) and which is the possessive (genitive singular). Without context, the first translation is the more likely one (one school with multiple teachers), but I suppose the sentence could be talking about multiple schools belonging to one teacher. We'll consider rewriting the sentence or adding the alternate translation to the Key. Good catch!

      Thanks so much! I agree that the first translation sounds more likely. My daughter is happy to know that her answer could be correct as well, though.
