Latin to English translations [Non-PRO]
Latin term or phrase: laudat

Dragon
English translation:She/he praises.
Explanation:
Latin generally uses no pronoun subjects, such as "he" or "she", so the subject of the verb LAUDAT is unknown.

Latin uses its one present tense in situations that correspond to situations where English may use four possible tenses:

1. She/he praises. [Repetition, general truth.] Example: "She praises her son every day."
2. She/he is praising. [Immediacy, continuation, "in progress".] Example: "He is praising Caesar right now."
3. She/he does praise. [Asseveration (positive contradiction of negative statement/supposition), use in questions/negatives in place of #1.] Example: "Even though you may not think so, she does praise her husband's work."
4. She/he has been praising. [Continuation of past action into the present and usually accompanied by some reference to a past time -- most other European languages behave like Latin at this point.] Example: "He has been praising his wife's character for many years."
