Eyes of Fire

I am not positive as to how to conjugate this phrase, and help would be greatly appreciated.

@Deigned,
First, you didn't specify the language you wanted this phrase in; I can give you the Spanish-- "Ojos de fuego".

Second... you conjugate verbs. The phrase "Eyes of Fire" doesn't contain a verb, so your request to conjugate this phrase doesn't make much sense.

e_brown is correct about "conjugation".
Setanta could never resist plaid jumpers and patent-leather shoes.

...and if you're looking for Latin:
Oculi ignis

His/her eyes of fire. My eyes of fire. Our eyes of fire. Their eyes of fire.

The request was for conjugation, not translation?

@Foofie,
That's not conjugation. Conjugation would be

I eye
You eye
He/She/It eyes
We eye
They eye

@Setanta,
While I am being pedantic...

I think Setanta conjugated with a Catholic girl.

I think think the transitive form of the verb requires a plural object (although conjugating Catholic girls might be interesting).

But it then loses its meaning?

Hang in there, Deigned. It's the silly season.

I'm pretty sure you wanted a Latin translation and I'm also sure that you meant
you could find the Latin words in a dictionary, but were unsure of their
declension.

Oculi -> Eyes -> Nominative plural of "oculus"
Ignis -> of Fire -> Genitive singular of "ignis"

@George,
Can Eyes of Fire be declined?

@ebrown p,
That's what happens when you use an automated online translator.
