Im confused about verbs in latin.
Like for instance if the sentence was The girl is running.
Would it be translated:
Do I not include the is in there? Aka est in latin?
In Latin, the word "est" (or any other form of "esse") is used either as a linking verb or as an auxiliary (helping) verb, just as they are in English.
Puella currit = correct for the translation you want. (The English word "is" is included in that present, 3rd, singular form of the verb.)
Thank you so much!
You're very welcome!
