"You visit the temple and sacrifice."

Translation:Templum visitas et sacrificas.

December 10, 2019



Theoretically spoken, could this also mean "You visit and sacrifice the temple."? Now, I know, it is unlikely because of the context, but is it also impossible because of the grammar, or would the grammar theoretically allow that?

In other words: direct object + transitive verb + conjunction + transitive verb. Both verbs could have the same object, couldn't they?


Yes, the grammar allows that interpretation, but the semantics not so much, as you point out.


It doesn't allow for the (plural) you, visitates?


Oh wait, is that because sacrifices is in the singular 2nd person... I get it now I think, nevermind
