01/17/2014 11:04 AMPosted by EnsgnblackSounds like it means
The dog has been dead for a long time or extended period.
Canem = A dog
Mortuum/Mortuus = Dead
Liber = The free one
I take it to mean, that the dog has already died, and has been dead for some time.
But liber is nominative (the subject) and canem is accusative (the direct object). The two words cannot grammatically go together. Using the words that way also leaves us without a verb, making the subject/direct object relationship odd. We also cannot imply the berb "to be" and make it something like "the free one is a dead dog" because "to be" is intransitive and would take a predicate nominative.
01/16/2014 06:22 PMPosted by EnsgnblackI am wondering exactly what this phrase is supposed to be in Latin.
"dead dog" is in Latin, but in the accusative case.
liber could be "free" in which case it would be nominative singular masculine, and not agree with dog.
Or it could be "book" but without a verb, the phrase seems odd. "Book dead dog" since dead dog cannot be genitive (the book of the dead dog).
Am I missing something obvious here?
