"My daughters sleep in the city."
Translation:Filiae meae in urbe dormiunt.
This isnt the only question where I've had this issue, but i thought word order didn't matter in Latin. I had all of the case endings right. But the course said I put them in the wrong order.
A second vote for more flexible word order. I placed the prepositional phrase at the front of the sentence and was marked wrong.
I thought that with the locative case there was no need for prepositions. Why is the "in" there?
Locative case is used with domus, rus, and humus, as well as proper nouns denoting the names of cities, towns, and small islands. So, "Romae" but "in urbe".
I believe "mei" is used with the masculine plural. Its feminine counterpart is "meae."
