Latin Translation: Love for my mother

by Anonymous

What would be the best way to say "love for my mother" in Latin?


amor matri
amor pro matri
amor pro matris
amor pro mea matri(s)

or any other possibilities?


Dear Anonymous,

The best way is amor matris, where matris is an objective genitive.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.

Sincerely,

John

You could also say amor meae matris depending on the precise nature of your meaning. The word meae is somewhat unnecessary though unless you wanted to stress 'my'.
