And how would I answer, in Latin, "The book is on the table"?
Maybe 'liber est in mensa'?
"In" feels odd, but I guess "super" would mean that the book is floating above the table.
In either case, this would be the Ablative "mēnsā", right?
In can mean either 'in' or 'on' which is why I used it, but super mensam could work too I think.
Yes, it would be ablative, I don't always include the macrons because I am a little lazy.
In fact, you just wrote "super mensam", but I guess you meant "super mensa".
Nope, I meant super mensam. I have been taught with an accusative: 'above', 'upon', and with and ablative: 'concerning', 'above'.
Regardless, it can take both.
the 'i' in liber is short. she is pronouncing it long.
