You did not make a word for word translation; you just made a list of words
and your interpretation of their meanings without making them into a
meaningful sentence that we can follow. Further, not all of us agree with
your interpretations. It looks as if you have just taken ideas from your
class and plugged them into your answer, some of us even question what you
were taught in your classes.
