The Latin word for 'in' is just simply the same word: 'in'. This can also mean 'on'. Note that the preposition "in" in Latin can be paired with and object of the prepositio…n in either the accusative OR ablative case. When used with an accusative case noun, the meaning is "into", when used with an ablative case, the meaning is "in". Example: AmbulÅ in casam (accusative), "I walk into the house." Sum in casÄ (ablative), "I am in the house." Or, since Latin verbs usually come at the end of a sentence, "In casam ambulÅ", and "In casÄ sum."
There are three Latin prepositions (two having alternative forms) that can be translated "from": . 'ab' ('a' or 'abs') - "The fundamental signification of ab is departur…e from some fixed point"* . 'ex' ('e') - "denotes out from the interior of a thing"* . 'de' - "denotes the going out, departure, removal , or separating of an object from any fixed point. Accordingly, it occupies a middle place between ab . . . and ex" . quoted from Lewis & Short, A Latin Dictionary
Latin doesn't have a word for the. It lacks articles. Thus, "a" "an" and "the" are not in Latin.
There is no catchall pronoun for "he" in Latin as there is in English. Person and number in all Latin verbs are determined by their endings. In simple 1st conjugation verbs th…ey are o/m, s, t, mus, tis, nt which attach to the word stem. And these endings change depending. There are 5 verb conjugations and various moods such as indicative, subjunctive and tenses such as present, perfect, pluperfect, etc. Singular, present, indicative, active : Sing. 1st ambulo I walk 2nd ambulas you walk 3rd ambulat he/she it walks Pl. 1st ambulamus we walk 2nd ambulatis you all walked 3rd ambulant they walked So to say: I walk with you, I write, ambulo sum te. But to say they walk with me, I have to write : ambulant sum mihi And that is just the simple 1st conjugation verbs. It gets trickier as you develop more complicated use of verbs such as "ambulÄÌverim" the perfect subjunctive, which can mean I could walk, I may be walking, should walk, or even could be walking depending on context. But you can see how the ending (averem) changes the meaning.
First/second declension. It can be Latinus, Latina, or Latinum.This is because "Latinus" is an adjective, the name of the language is " lingua Latina."
Te amo. (singular address) Vos amo. (plural address)
Technically, there is no article "the" in Latin, as such is implied in the noun itself. For example, when in English you would have to say "the man" or "a man" to be grammat…ically correct, the same is not true in Latin--there are no definite or indefinite articles, for they are replaced by suffixes that give to the noun different meanings. For example: Puella (girl) singular nominative: puell a (the girl) genitive: puell ae (of the girl) dative: puell ae (to the girl, for the girl) accusative: puell am (to the girl) vocative: puell a (oh, girl!) ablative: puell a (by the girl, with the girl, in the girl) The sentence in Latin, "Vir ambulat" could be translated as either "The man is walking" "A man is walking" based on context. If you are composing a Latin sentence based on English, there is no need to include a translation of the article "the." For you have to take into account all the cases that existed in Latin.
