Notes regarding answer keys:
- Often a word or sentence may be translated more than one way. In such cases the answer keys provide only one translational option; others may also be valid.
- sm = smooth translation
- Smooth translations are typically not provided for biblical texts in interlinear-style exercises, you may consult English Bibles for that purpose.
- Answer keys are typically not provided for exercises in Lessons 16-26 which involve the translation of biblical texts.
