  3. Corpora nOn sumus. From Cicero, Tusculan Disputations.  Three facts about the parsing of this sentence.
    1. "We" are the unexpressed subjects.

    2.  corpora is nominative because the bodies are identified with the subject. Not a direct object.

    3. statements of identity using the  nominative case  are "predicate nominatives."
  4. HostEs ex corporibus pugnant.  Parse.
    HostEs - masculine nominative noun, enemy,  The context makes it clear that it is the subject of pugnant, rather than accusative. 

    ex - preposition related to ablative case, meaning "out of", "from" or "from on top of"

    Pugnant - indicative, "they fight"
