    Como se podria traducir y transmitir la idea de la siguiente oracion:

    "El castellano permite diferenciar el "Ser" del "Estar". "Ser" viene del latin "Sedere" y "Estar" de "Estare"."

    Spanish allows us to express two forms of "to be."

    Another option, more liberal:
    Spanish makes a distinction between "ser" and "estar," although both translate as "to be" in English. "Ser" comes from the Latin "sedere," and "estar" from "estare."
