Latin Phrase and spelling

by Velvet

Dear Latin Teacher,

Can you please translate the phrase: Luctor et Emergo?

What does this mean exactly? Does it mean, I struggle I emerge? Or something else.

Thank you for all your help and this is truly a great site!! Please email me back if you can.

Thank you,

Dear Velvet,

Yes, your Latin phrase means "I struggle and I emerge". The verb luctor means literally I wrestle. (It's a deponent verb, for those that are interested, meaning its forms are always passive.)

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