Latin/need help with a translation.
i was wondering if you could help me to translate this phrase to Latin. " always by your side "
i want to give a ring with this text to a special girl i know =)
could you help me ?
kind regards, Hugo
the best way to render your phrase would be “Tecum semper” or “Semper tecum” with a different word order that in Latin can be variable.
Note that SEMPER means “always”, while TECUM literally means “with you”, i.e. “by your side”.
Please read more below.
-Always = SEMPER (adverb)
-by your side =TECUM (composed of the pronoun TE in the ablative case + the preposition CUM which takes the ablative). Here we have CUM in anastrophe, i.e. in inversion of the normal syntactic order of words, since the pronoun TE (you) stands before the preposition CUM (with).
