"Vōljesse, ūlia, se atroksī hontesse issi."

Translation:Ravens, falcons, and owls are birds.

So in compound nouns with three nouns, "se" is used?


It seems like that. I would like to know what would happen if you have more than three things to list


Not necessarily. Consider the sentences

Zoklī, zaldrīzī, kēliā izūgan? Daor, qintra izūgan! "Am I afraid of wolves, dragons, and lions? No, I am afraid of turtles!"


Parklon, havon, drōmā sindītīs! "Buy meat, bread, and eggs!"

that show up elsewhere. While those don't explain what's going on, they do indicate that the issue of coordination is slightly more complicated.
