Ordo verborum non necessarius est
Sed, ordo rei necessarius est.
What are the rules for word order in this case?
Isn't ad "from"? How do I say "I make a journey from the city?"
"From" is "ab" and "to" is "ad", as far as I understand. I'd say "iter ab urbe facio" (ab followed by the ablative form), but correct me if I'm wrong
You are right.
Why can't it be "Ad urbem facio iter"?
Shouldn't it be "Iter ad urbe facio"?
No, because of the preposition
is iter in Accusative here? what is its Nominative form, then?
Iter is both nominative and accusative (this is true for all the neuter nouns).
I don't recall learning this. And the words have no drop down hints. What is "iter"? What is "facio"?
"Iter" = "(a) journey", "facio" = "I make"
