Elementary level here. Linking with -que: magna insula + magna paeninsula = magna insula magnaque paeninsula and cicada + magna lupa = cicada magnaque lupa (magna referring to lupa only). Are they correct? If in accusative, or in any other case, would it be the same?

1 Answer 1


Yes, your phrases are correct, and it works independent of the case. A similar example from Caesar's Bellum Civile (1, 61), using two plural accusatives:

hic magnos equitatus magnaque auxilia exspectabant
here they expected large cavalry troops and large auxiliary troops
