Dum[fontem recensere]

Dum translates as "while". And, strangely, it switches you to the present tense. So, if you really want to use dum: He died suddenly in 1994 while he leads the Labour party, to which office he has just been promoted in 1992. "Mortuus est subito anno 1994 dum factioni Laboris praesidet, cui officio nuper anno 1992 promotus est." Or something like that, I'm sure others will now improve it :) Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 15:38, 1 Iunii 2012 (UTC)
