  5. "Nemo deas rogat."

"Nemo deas rogat."

Translation:No one asks the goddesses.

I believe it could be better to have an Latin course whose basic language be Spanish.


well... certainly not "better than." Otherwise, English speakers (and speakers of other languages which do not have a Latin course) would not be able to learn Latin with Duo! But I agree. A Latin course from the major romance languages at least, would be a great addition.


It is interesting for all Latin influenced languages. A huge chunk of German is based on Latin (and Greek) or has the same roots in proto-indoeuropean and that's the reason I am here looking at this "useless" language.


How would you write "No one questions the goddesses" in Latin ?


I, too, would like to know the answer to this question!


nemo deas dubitat. Would be the best (lit. no one doubts the goddesses).


Shouldn't this rather be in the dative? As in 'to ask the goddesses (something)'. Doesn't this sentence mean litterally to ask FOR the goddesses? Maybe I'm rusty...


"Nemo deae questionem posit" would be "no one asks the goddess a question" and require the dative.


After leaving the comment, I dragged out the old Lewis and Short and rediscovered what I should know: rogare takes two accusatives...whoops. Mea culpa and thanks for the reply.
