I put "what would you girls like" and got it incorrect. :(
Me too. I'm sure it means the same thing, just report it!
Is puellae in the vocative or just plural?
It is the vocative plural here.
Wouldn't it be "Quid puellae velitis"? From what I saw on the forums, the verb goes last, though word order is flexible"
There is free word order in Latin, the Romans liked the verbs to come last as they thought it was kind of suspenseful and therefore more exciting.
Such a strange sentence
Is this not an improper use of volo? I've seen it used as a synonym for amo, amare, but volo takes a complimentary infinitive and really is better to indicate a wish for a "verb."
Why is QUID PUELLAE VELITIS incorrect? WHAT WOULD YOU GIRLS LIKE
"what would you girls like" seems to have the same meaning. I'm not sure it should be incorrect.
Seemed like an "est" at the end
I think the right pronunciation is "vèlitis" and not "velítis"
No, the stress is on the second syllable because it's long
What would be the latin for (or, how is the sentence to be distinguished from) this:
"What girls would you like?"
P.s. i thought Latin had no commas?
It would use the interrogative adjective if I am not mistaken:
Quas puellas velis? or Quas puellas velitis?
I'm happy to see it accepted my answer of "What do y'all want, girls?".
What girls whould you like was wrong.
Because that is not what the sentence means. We are asking a group of girls what they would want, not what girls some other person or group would want.
