Latin/Land of play
I'm not sure if there is a literal translation, but I'm trying to find the Latin for 'Land of Play', would it be terra ludi or terra ludis or something different? It's for the title of a sculpture that children can play on.
Many thanks in advance.
"Land of Play" can be translated as follows:
-“Terra ludi “ or “Ludi terra”(with a different word order)
-“Terra ludorum” or “Ludorum terra” (with a different word order)
As for “terra ludis”, it is wrong for “ludis” is a dative/ablative plural, but “of play” corresponds to a genitive case in the singular (LUDI) or in the plural (LUDORUM).
Read more below.
-Land =TERRA (nominative singular, 1st.declension)
-of play = LUDI (genitive singular of LUDUS, 2nd.declension) or LUDORUM (genitive plural of LUDUS, 2nd.declension)
Latin word order can be different from English simply because Latin is an inflected language where grammatical/syntactical relationships are indicated by the endings, not by the order of the words.
