Subject:Locative Case
Time:08:47 pm
Hello , I'm Anna and I'm from Portugal. I'm in my second semester (first year) of university and i just have latin. I love it really much. But I do have some doubts regarding this locative subject. I have some sentences to translate into Latin, using the locative case (they were in portuguese but I'll translate them into english) if someone can help me. Thanks , in advance *

Quintus and Flaccus are in Roma. - Quintus et Flaccus Romae sunt.

Cornelia and Julio are in Corinthus. - Cornelia et Julius Corinthi sunt.

They lived in Cuma. - Cumarum habitabant.

In Capua there are lots of houses. - Capuae multas aedes habet.

The city of Troia had a lot of templos. - Oppidum Troia multa templa habebat.

Is it something like this? :|

The first two look OK to me.

Oppidum doesn't have a locative case (most words don't, only names of places and a small handful of nouns), so it would have to be 'In oppido Troia', with the ablative.

I'm not sure if you can use 'aedes' in the plural to mean 'houses', since it's already a plural (plural with singular meaning). But if your teacher says so, I guess you should. :)
