"The thief does not want to buy the shoes."

Translation:Fur calceos emere non vult.

December 8, 2019



Of course, the thief didn't want to buy the shoes. The thief wants to steal it!


It was my understanding that there is no strict word order in Latin. I just had "Fur emere calceos non vult" marked incorrect. Is it really incorrect?
