"Iuvenis linguae Latinae studet."

Translation:The young man studies Latin.

September 29, 2019



I don't understand why linguae Latinae is not in the accusative. Likely something about studet (studere?) that I don't understand.


studere is one of several (I remember being taught around twenty maybe? I don't know if that was all of them either) verbs that take the dative as the 'direct object'.
