Genitive case on first sentence?[fontem recensere]
I can't write latin, sorry if this is preferred here.
Me and a friend of mine recently read this article. We have a doubt on its first sentence, thinking it may be wrong:
Wouldn't "Pisces est duodecimum signum zodiacum" be correctly written as "Pisces est duodecimum signum zodiaci" to indicate the genitive case¹ for the sign of pisces?
Maybe related: in Portuguese, my mother language, we would write that sentence with a genitive grammatical construction; latin is usually similar in this kind of idea.
- You would be right if zodiacus were only a noun, but it can also be an adjective. As it is now, we could translate it as "Pisces is the twelfth zodiacal sign", with zodiacum being a neuter nominative to agree with signum. Lesgles (disputatio) 15:27, 29 Aprilis 2015 (UTC)
