Im confused about verbs in latin.

Like for instance if the sentence was The girl is running.

Would it be translated:

Puella currit.

Do I not include the is in there? Aka est in latin?

  • 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.)

  • Latin -
