Olim in Venetia habitabat parva puella qui appelabatur Aurelia.

Aurelia hababat familiam ingentam. Erant eius tres frateris, Lucius, Rufus, et Iulus. Erant eius tria sororis, Anna, Ursa, erat Ennia et erat ipsa, Aurelia. Habitabant cum eius parentis, Claudia et Marcus Valerius. Et etiam erat eius canis, Sirius.

Er. Basically, slap me if you find anything horribly ungrammatical. The English word order is meant to be that way. *threatening* And if you can think up something better than "Ursa", please do. Ursula and Urania aren't fun, and I'd rather not call her sister a bear.

okay, you darling girl.


ingentam -> ingens, ingentis (1 termination third declension) so ingentem

appellabatur -> two L's, appellabatur

hababat -> habebat

erant eius tres frateris - I assume you want a dative of possession here; thus eius goes to ei, and tres frateris to tres fratres.

same thing with eius tria sororis -> ei tres sorores

I would delete the erat in "Anna, Ursa, erat Ennia et" because you already have an erant going with those three nouns.

cum eius parentis -> cum suis parentibus, because the pronoun is reflexive, and parentibus must be ablative too

ha, I like the dog.

Maybe change some et's to que's for a better prose style?


Sorry about the formatting; I didn't feel like putting all those into italics. A lovely start and I can't wait for the next installment.

If your looking for a name other than Ursa, try Cornelia or Claudia. Also, I think it might be habebat and not hababat. There could be a few other mistakes, but I dont have my latin book with me at the moment to consult.

Thanks. I was going for a Roman girl's name starting with U, though, but thanks for the commentary.
