死す

Post by ShounenSuki » Tue 11.29.2005 4:04 am

While translating something, I came across a a phrase like "[name]死す" ([name] shisu).
Can anyone help me translate it? Is it simply translated as "[name] dies," or does it have a different meaning?

This is the only answer my dictionary had: 死すべき 【しすべき】 (adj) mortal

It means "dies" but it carries a literary feel to it.
