Example Question #1 : Using Comparative Adjectives In Latin
Which adjective correctly completes the sentence below?
Legionarii romani milites __________ in mundo sunt.
Although "fortis" is a third declension adjective, in its superlative comparative form, "fortissimus," it functions as a second declension adjective; this means that in order to agree with "milites," which is itself an appositive for "Legionarii," it must be in the second declension masculine nominative plural, "fortissimi."
