Latin Translation: On This Day

by DC

Dear Latin Teacher,


How would you give a Latin translation for "on this day"?

Thanks, DC


Dear DC,

The Latin word for "today", hodie, is actually a contraction of the Latin Phrase meaning "On this day": Hoc Die.

It's in the ablative case to express Time When. Some other Latin translations:

On that day = illo die

On the same day = eodem die

On the next day = postero die

Hope this helps and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.

Sincerely,

John
