Should this not be "quintus miles" if we are speaking of one soldier?
FYI: We've already updated "milites" to "miles," but it often takes quite a few days before the update goes through the system and is reflected to users.
Optime! Gratiam ago
Milites is a plural and does not match with quintus. It should be miles.
Yes, 'milites' should 'miles' if we're taking about only one soldier.
Latin in exercise sentence reads "quintus milites"
Does "non" always have to proceed the verb?
Isn't quintus an adjective and should therefore appear after the noun?
No. Adjectives are usually before the noun. However, in many cases they can be located after, like the possessive meus, for instance.
