Jean,
The nameplate one has been answered on an earlier thread. Sorry,but I can't remember the answer.

Jean, a doctor's nameplate is a SHINGLE, which makes your 'A' wrong.

And Terry, I think 'I have sinned' is PECCAVI, so that last 'A' may also be wrong.

Bullfrog,
Peccavi is the form(1st. person singular) of peccare usually seen in crosswords. So I expect you are right. But peccava is the singular imperfect tense of peccare so might be OK.

I got the above load of bollocks from one of those translation sites. I am sure you are right and I am wrong.

Bullfrog,
I expect you noticed that I failed to say that peccava is the Third Person sing. imp. etc.
