Ancient Languages/latin translation
Hi i'm trying to find the latin translation for my family my world, I have found a few but they all seem to be slightly different I would appreciate your help thanks,
“Mea familia, universum meum” is the correct translation for “My family, my world”.
-My = MEA (possessive adjective, nominative feminine agreed with the nominative FAMILIA)
-Family =FAMILIA (nominative feminine, 1st declension)
-My = MEUM (possessive adjective, nominative neuter agreed with UNIVERSUM, 2nd declension)
-world= UNIVERSUM (nominative neuter meaning “the universe” /”the whole world”).
Please note that some online translations of “My family, my world “ are unfortunately wrong.
Also note that in “Mea familia, universum meum” there is a chiasmus, i.e. an inverted relationship between the syntactic elements of a phrase where e.g. the first word MEA is reiterated as the last MEUM so that the phrase is represented as a X structure.
