I could be wrong--and if I am could someone please explain how this answer is correct--but I am most certainly sure that "Linguae Latinae student" is grammatically incorrect. Why isn't the object taking the accusative ending? Shouldn't it be something like:
"Eae/Ii Linguam Latinum student." (They study the Latin Language.)
Again, if I'm wrong could someone please explain what's going on? Otherwise, I really hope this gets fixed soon.
Ah okay, this makes sense. I'm somewhat familiar with swapping the accusative case with the dative case.
Would this be the same concept as the following example:
"Marco una soror est" (Marcus [with the dative -o ending] has a sister.)
Since my example is the dative of possession, what would the Duolingo example be called?
I have seen it referred to as dative with special verbs.
