Lesson 6: The Conjunction And
There are 3 ways to say "and" in Latin
- ac or atque
- "-que" is attached to the second element that is to be joined by the first. The famous S.P.Q.R. uses this: "senatus popolusque romanus" = "the senate and people of Rome".
- "-que" can join not only nouns, verbs, and adjective, but also entire phrases, sentences and paragraphs. When joining phrases, "-que" is normally attached to the first word of the 2nd phrase.
