Can't tell if this is an errata or I'm just misunderstanding something grammatically. The translation given for the English phrase "[given] four rewards to this man" is "quattuor praemia viro huic."

Why is "praemia" in the nominative singular instead of accusative plural?

Praemia is in the accusative plural. It's a neuter noun of the second declension (praemium).

I don't think you should be translating before knowing by heart the 5 declensions.

Thank you; I was working on this late at night and had forgotten that praemia was a neuter noun and not feminine. Whoops!

The textbook I'm working through has translation exercises in each chapter, so I'm not sure how I could avoid those. It only recently introduced fourth and fifth declension nouns.
