They say Caesar is tall.

    I'm wondering about case-marking in constructions like this. What case does the adjective take? Does it match tensed clauses?

    Is this following translation correct?

    ferunt Caesarem esse altum.

    Correctamundo, my guy. Although your textbook is likely to give the 'standard' word order.

    Caesarem altum esse ferunt.

    Edit: Also procerus might be better for 'tall'.
