Latin/Translate English phrase to Latin
Please could you translate the phrase "Life is either an adventure or nothing"
I would be much obliged if you could.
Thanking you in advance.
"Life is either an adventure or nothing” can be translated as :“Aut mirabilis est vita eventus aut nihil”, whose parsing you can read below.
-Life =VITA (subject, nominative case, 1st declension)
-is = EST (3rd person singular, present indicative of SUM)
-an adventure = MIRABILIS EVENTUS (composed of the adjective MIRABILIS, meaning “amazing” and the noun EVENTUS meaning “event”, both in the nominative case). I have to point out that MIRABILIS EVENTUS corresponds to the sense of the English term “adventure” as an unusual or exciting experience.
-nothing =NIHIL (neuter pronoun).
As you can see, Latin word order can be different from English as Latin is an inflected language where syntactical relationships are indicated by the ending, not by the order of the words.
