Somebody mind explaining me the difference between "comes" and "contubernalis"?
I love the fact that a comrade is someone with whom you share a tent.
Why could comes not be used
Comes is closer to "companion" than "comrade". Contubernalis has a sense of a military relationship since it also has the meaning of "tent-companion".
i used and it was accepted. 21 fev 2020
It was also accepted for me.
Tried comitem just to see and Duolingo does not approve.
You would have to use comes the nominative case, comitem is the accusative.
Comitem pugnat would mean "he/she fights the comrade/companion"
