You would need the verb to be in the imperative (I can't remember the correct ending, they're generally the future). This isn't, it's in the second person plural present and so in English you need the pronoun to make a proper sentence.
It would be 2nd person plural imperative "pugnate," for what it's worth. I made the same mistake :D
Finally, the reason to learn Latin has arrived! Lots and lots of war vocabulary! Who needs small talk anyway :D
We have not yet seen others tenses, but I guess a more logical sentence would have been : "Milites, bene pugnabatis" = "Soldiers, you fought well". Unless it is a stimulus in the middle of the battle...
pugnavistis? you fought/have fought well.
pugnabatis would be: you were fighting well, until the ice-cream van arrived and y'all broke off to form a line behind the strawberry mivvies...
The "pl." tile is (unfortunately) picked up from the hints about the plural "you." It's not actually meant to be used to construct sentences. You can ignore it. :D
Ah! It is an unfortunate DL artifact! I see :o)
I've not seen them in other languages, so I wondered if it was deliberate. Thank you for explaining.
It depends on how individual teams set up their notes. There are some courses in which things like this pop up a lot, but you may not be taking any of those.
No problem :o)
That's where I've been using the "all" tile. Things have been ok not using the "pl" tile.
