Puer crustulae monstrum est.
Puer crustuli monstrum est.
The pronunciation is horrible
puer DEC-em cr-rustoola where lit.
With respect, unless you are personally conversationally acquainted with one or more ancient Romans, how do you know "the pronunciation is horrible?"
Because I studied Latin for 4 years and this lady in the recording is just pronuncing the words in an english accent. Latin had rules how to say words
I learn with muted sound, I think she's right.
shouldn't it be crustulas?
Because crustulum is neuter and the accusative plural is crustula. (The example I learned for this declension is bellum, bellum, bellum, belli, bello, bello: bella, bella, bella, bellorum, bellis, bellis)
I would have said:
Puer crustulis monstrum est.
I haven't see dative case yet but i suppose i can't use a genitive on an accusative.
I found it difficult to hear the first word here. Puem decem crustula velit. Can't be puem, never heard of one. Must be puer. I guess it must be my ears.
Yes, sounds like puem to me, too. Hopefully they'll sort it out in Beta.
Why is "want" instead of "would like" refused ?
