Dear Latin Teacher,
I need 5 derivatives for the Latin word bellum
. I have searched all over and can't find 5 of them.
: argumentative, ready to fight.belligerent
: warlike, ready for war; punchy, rude, difficult to get along with, petulant.antebellum
: built before the civil war.bellipotent
: powerful in war, mighty.casus belli
: an event that brings about a declaration of war.
And is it cheating to give several forms of one true derivative?bellicositybelligerence
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
P.S. You can start learning Latin now with Rosetta Stone!
