1. Hi,Livia, this is very well explained,so according to these rules ,this sentence found in the book ” a new latin primer” by Maxey &Fray is wrong? Or is there another exception for “hic”?
    Thank you dear Livia.
    Hic viae non sunt antiquae

    1. Hi Maria, great question! In addition to being a demonstrative pronoun, hīc can be an irregular adverb meaning “here.” So your example sentence is correct and means “here the roads are not old”.

      If you wanted to say “these roads are not old,” you would need to use the feminine nominative plural of hic. The sentence would be as follows: hae viae nōn sunt antīquae.
