help to begin with IL

Message publicper zazidan » dom. mar 25, 2012 5:40 pm

Hi everyone,
I just discovered Interlingua and it's really a beautiful construction. I understand 90% of the text without of course beeing able to say anything!
So I decided to learn it by reading texts (I already red Breve historia de Brasil very nice style!) but, there's some words or form that I cannot find in the dictionnaries.
How can I get help here or somewhere else?
It would be pb like this:
I can find nowhere
"in canes e aves"

thx for your help

Hm... it seems to me it means "in dogs and sheep"; maybe author had in mind "among..." instead of "in..."

You are writing in English, so I presume that you understand English well enough to make use of English sources. There are numerous English sources available for Interlingua, both grammar references and vocabulary lists. Many of them are referenced on the "Interwiki" page on this site: .

Sounds like some of metaphoric phrase. May be that could help somewhat?
