  5. "Labra implere potes."

"Labra implere potes."

Translation:You can fill the bathtubs.

September 25, 2019



Should I report this for not accepting "bath" as labra? In my daily life I only ever say "bath" to mean "bathtub", and I think that's common enough where I'm from.


Lābra Lābrum bathing tub, bathtub, basin, bowl, A bath, bathing place • Contraction from Lavābrum (“bathing tub”), from Lavō (“to wash, bathe”) +‎ -brum instrument, vessel, place.

Labra Labrum lip, edge, margin, brim • From PIE leb- (“to hang down”). Cognate to Labium and to English Lip.


Doesn't Labrum mean lip?


Yes labrum means lip and lābrum means tub. But since the course currently doesn't use macrons they would both look the same.


Um is there a difference between "Bathtub" and "tub" because I put "tub" and I got it wrong.
