"You are not the father."
Translation:Tu non es pater.
Sum - I am
Es - you are
Est - he/she/it is
Sumus - we are
Estis - you (plural) are
Sunt - they are
Does that help? Don't be afraid to ask for clarification on grammar.
It's exactly where French gets it from, so any similarities you might find are not at all coincidental. Definitely use them to help you.
Est is 3rd person singular. It means is. You use it with he, she, it, and singular nouns. Es is second person singular. It means you are. You use it when you are speaking to one person about himself, for example: you are talking too fast, you are my friend, etc.
Hope this helps.
Est is third person singular, es is second person singular: He is = est; you are = es
The sentence would be exactly the same ("Tu non est pater"). As Latin doesn't have articles at all, only context can be used to determine.
The young female voice pronounces "non" to rhyme with the English word "cone", but the older male voice pronounces "non" to rhyme with English "con". Which is the preferred pronunciation?
Non es pater, Pater non es, which one is more like "you are not (a) father", and which one "you are not the father" (the father of this child, implied), yes, I know, it's about context, but there's certainly an emphasis difference.
Would other word order possible (I read it was possible, but it gives a myriad of possibilities): Non tu es pater, Non es tu pater, Non es pater tu, etc...
Which ones are weird? Apparently, it's not wrong to unlink "non" and "es": Non es pater, Non pater es.
Does someone could explain me the difference in emphasis in those cases?
