Question
I have always had an interest in the Latin language but I never had the opportunity to learn it. I am in the US Navy and I was wondering what the phrase, "Without Fear" is in Latin. Thank you and I look forward to your response.

Answer
Hello,

"Without Fear" translates as “Sine metu” into Latin.

Note that “sine”, meaning “without”, is a preposition which takes the ablative case, and “metu”, meaning “fear”, is just the ablative singular of the masculine noun “metus” belonging to the 4th declension, for Latin is an inflected Language with five declensions.

Hope this can be helpful to you and can satisfy at least a little bit your interest in the Latin language.

Best regards,

Maria
