Cherokee in Latin

Osiyo! (Salve!)

Does anyone know if there are Latin names for the various American Indian tribes? I am looking for the Latin for 'Cherokee'. Does anyone know of such a Latin word?

I have contacted some Cherokees on the internet to see what their opinions would be of what word to use in Latin if I have to invent one. It appears that the consensus will be that I should use 'Cherokee' instead of a ...

Hi guys, need some help with indirect statements.

they confuse my brain.

"The old man thought that his son was calling to him"

I'm going with "senex putavit filium eum advocisse". Is that OK? Having two objects confuses it i think. Would "the old man thought that his son had called him" be better??

Also, when relative clauses appear things get confusing. eg. "The merchant replied that the slaves who were pouring out wine had been bought for a great price". I went ...

If I were to translate from 38 Latin Stories...

If I were to translate a paragraph from 38 Latin Stories and post my translation along with the Latin form from the book without accents, macrons and such, would the people who know Latin be ok to check over it still? I'm not sure how to type the accents over my letters on the keyboard, so it would just be plain spelling. I just wish the book would have the English translations of every practise ...

how do u pronounce "roma est"

is it pronounced "romast"? I read that if a word before "est" ends with a vowel, the "e" in "est" is cut out.

educate me!

Hello, Im after a bit of help and it's a long time I did latin at school!
Is there a latin translation for the phrase "trial(s) and tribulation(s)"?
I invented "tribulatio et temptatio", but this is without grammatical knowledge, or true meaning of the words.
If anyone knows a correct translation, please post a response.

:roll: many thanks - Nels

Latin Conversation - to speak or not to speak

Curious to know the opinions of board participants. There are a lot of options because I suspect that people have nuanced opinions about this question. Not all the answers are mutually exclusive.

Latin Audio Poll

Some of the members here and I have been working on a audio suppliment to the Latin texts available here. We hope to have the project ready in the next month or so. We are at the point now where we are beginning to finalize the work.

This poll is meant to get a feel for how members would use such a suppliment.

This poll will run for 30 days.

Rex ero

Certain individuals in my immediate surrounding are tam pissing me off that I no longer see any option than to make things clear to them:

"When I am king, you will be first against the wall."*

Of course if I were to state this as such I would be shunned for the rest of my life (miser kasper, desinas ineptire, etc.) and die old, tired and lonely. Hence my desire to say it in latin. ...

Has Catullus lost it?

"Phaselus ille, quem videtis, hospites,
ait fuisse navium celerrimus"

I mean, what the irrumationem? Does C not speak latin any longer? Indirect speech with a nominative?!

What weird sort of semi-greek-latin kind of literary oddity am I dealing with here? Is this allowed? Should it be allowed?
