"The thieves collect the gems and the pictures."

Translation:Fures gemmas et picturas colligunt.

September 20, 2019



There was nothing wrong with the other option (Fures colligunt gemmas et picturas). Although the verb generally comes last it doesn't have to. I mention it here because I didn't have an option for reporting the error, having chosen the "correct" version.


They fixed it, my choices were :
Plurimas pupas solet natare.
Plurimas pupas colligere solet.
Plurimas colligitis solet colligere.

When this kind of error happen, don't report in the forum, as it will make nothing. But take a screenshot, and post it in the troubleshooting forum, where it will be noticed and answered (hopefully).


Always nice to have a paying hobby!


"Fures gemmas picturasque colligunt" I find it nice that this is accepted. The "que" suffix is a lot common in classical texts.
