Hmmm...interesting events are in place.

lingua latina non faculis est.

Latin is a language
As dead as dead can be
First it killed the Romans
And now it's killing me :(

And all together now: amo, amas, amat, amamus, amatis, amant.
ChrisHowlett sings:
"Amo, amas, amat, amamus!"
"Amo, amas, amat, amamus!"
Proving that this is
The best of all possible worlds,
With love and kisses
The best of all possible world.
Quod Erat Demonstrandum - QED!

Hic libur est meus
Testis est deus
Si quis fureter
Pur collum pendetur
Like this poor cretur

Brutus adsum jam forti.
Caesar ad erat.
Brutus sic in omnibus.
Caesar sic in at.

Useful Latin Phrases


Postatem obscuri lateris nescitis! [1]
Unum habebabum sed rotor acidit (spelling?) - I used to have one, but the wheel fell off.
According to TerryPratchett, 'Quanti Canicula ille in finestere?'  --FR
"With how many little bitches was he in the window?" --Requiem, translating "finestere" as "fenestre"
Yeah, that was my translation, as well. "Quantum il canis in fenestre?" is probably what you want. --SF
''"il"? That's not a word, is it? "Quantum ille constet canis in fenestre", perhaps? (Yes, I looked up "to cost", so the verb's probably wrong). But my Latin is mostly Vergil and similar, and doesn't cover everyday things like buying a puppy. --Requiem (Edit. Or "Quis cantat illa in fenestre", "Who's singing in that window?")
Look, I'm quoting here.  And canicula is little dog, not female gog.  It's called a diminutive.  --FR (RunsAndHides before having things thrown at him for being rude.)
And we're telling you he's wrong. It's happened before, you know...especially since Pratchett's Ankhian is in no way required to be correct to Classical Latin. --SF
Isn't "canicula" little female dog, and "caniculus" the masculine? That was the idea of the 'little bitches' bit. I was just trying to translate in random silly fashion, as I'm sure he'd want. --Requiem throws PlushyToasters at FlameRider on general principle
FlameRider ducks and sobs into his A level certificate
And also, 'Carpe diem, et nil illegitimi carborundum' :) - SunKitten
As well as Vetinari's adherence to the ancient legal principle of 'quia ego sic dici' --Anonyman
