Well, Corinna built four!
Remus: Can I build the city too?
...on rock and roll.
Shouldn't "a city" be as good an answer as "the city"? It didn't accept "a city".
Yes, as an absolute rule here, as Latin doesn't have definite and indefinite articles, each time you can use either "a" or "the".
And with plural nouns, you can use "the" or the zero-article.
So, each time it's not consistent about this, report!
Somebody did so and it's OK now.
Wasn't "to build" "aedificare"?
Here, it's to "build" in the figurative sense.
"To found" is better here, as it's more literal (and less ambiguous).
Use it if you prefer. Personally, I prefer!
what do you mean "build" in the figurative sense?
"in your imagination" or "with Lego bricks"
So urbem is the accusative of urbs? Does anyone has a link to Latin declension rules?
You mean the case endings or...?
Did you hear clearly "urbem"? (just asking).
In petra et collyris
Urbem condēbāmus; urbem condēbāmus in saxum et volvō.
"ego" ends in a short o, but it is being pronounced with a long o.
