I am trying to title a poem, and I thought it would be nice to do so in Latin. I want to say "Out of Heaven" (in the terms that I "walked out of Heaven"). What would you suggest?

I don't know much (or any) Latin, but I have tried to work on this on my own using some online English-Latin dictionaries. I came up with:

out of --> e
Heaven --> æther or ...

my justification for this is that the chances of me getting to level of this translation in the next billion years is slim, anyway

language speech problem

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?

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!!)

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
