Latin/Looking for the right translation.
Good evening, ma'am:
I was wondering how you would say "Loyal/faithful and steadfast." in Latin. I have been looking on Google, but I am not confident in what I have found.
Can you please help me?
"Loyal/faithful and steadfast” translates correctly as follows:
-“Fidelis et constans”, if both the adjectives “Loyal/faithful” and “steadfast” refer to a male or female person used in the singular.
-“Fideles et constantes”, if both the adjectives “Loyal/faithful” and “steadfast” refer to male or female persons used in the plural.
In English, in fact, the adjectives remain the same either in the singular or in the plural, whereas in Latin the adjectives change ending, according to the singular/plural as well as to the case of the noun they refer to.
-Loyal/faithful = FIDELIS (nominative singular) or FIDELES (nominative plural).
Note that FIDELIS,FIDELE is an adjective of Two Terminations, where FIDELIS is either masculine or feminine, while FIDELE is the neuter.
-steadfast =CONSTANS (nominative singular) or CONSTANTES (nominative plural).
Note that CONSTANS is an adjective of One Termination,whose masculine, feminine and neuter are the same, i.e. CONSTANS.
