Is Caesar worth reading? Is Horace?

This started in another thread, but it seems to have acquired a life of its own and I thought I would spin it off. Original thread is here: http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic.php?t=1397.

Say, Ulpianus, do you propose that Caesar's writing is, for the modern Latinist, merely functional?
I'm a fan of him myself. Brilliant, impeccable Latin, and, really, not hardly as boring as some, who've perhaps read the first few lines only, make it out ...

Cursive Script

Hey here's the Roman Cursive Script written in Britain.

Look at the box of writing below the alphabet. Click Show transcription. How do you render the latin? It seems deformed to me...but it's probably because I'm not exposed to enough original latin (or any yet!!)

Enjoy, I'll await your replies. (Come on benissimus! You know you want to be ostentatious with this)

How do you say 'How do you say__in Latin?'?

First, multas gratias to benissimus for posting the Wheelock sentences.

Second, how do you say "How do you say ___ in Latin?"?

Here, I'll trade you Italian for Latin. This is how you ask the question in Italian:
How do you say "whatever" in Italian?
Come si dice "whatever" in italiano?

MVLTAS GRATIAS

Need Translation Assistance

Hello Latin Forum!

I am a simple old woman, mostly self-educated. I have a friend who likes to send me little tidbits in (what I suspect to be poor) Latin. Normally I can use a beginning Latin text I picked up at a flea market to assist in translating. But this time, while I am getting the gist of individual words, I am not grasping the overall meaning of the phrase... I just can't seem ...

Ennius

I'm sure you all know Ennius, the Latin poet.
His Annales only came to us by fragments. So we can find a fragment of Ennius in Cicero, de divinatione I, 48.

I found a sentence and I understand the Latin, but I have difficulties to translate this in proper Dutch, cause the English translation is a bit odd to me.

Exin candida se radiis dedit icta foras lux.

icta radiis (I found this in a ...
