Combined with our new word "stercus", this would be a good time to reinforce California in our vocabulary.

This is turning out to be a very sordid lesson.

"The roads in the city are dirty." was marked as wrong. 'Streets' was what they were looking for. Wouldn't 'streets' be 'plateae'?

Now they are accepting both. I don't know the Latin "plateae," but I do know that in English "roads" run between two distant points — two towns, for example. In each of those towns, you'll find "streets:" paved roads lined with houses and other buildings.

Is it just a coincidence that this sentence keeps coming up immediately after "I visit the street" and a sentence about stercus?
