A quick question.

Hello. I have a problem, and i was hoping somebody here could help me.
"Mens sana in corpore sano" as you all know, is translated as "a sound mind in a sound body". Now i would like to change it to a sick mind in a sick body. How would that look? I know that "morbus" is sickness but can i just exchange "sana" for "morbus"? Sorry about this question, as it may seem silly ...

Jurassic Pearson =)

Hodie librum quendam emi. Hoc "ebay" forum multos libros optimos habet,
re vera nunc suadeo ut vos eo quoque eatis. Quo in loco (textkit) etiam scio hunc librum esse, sed una pars, aliqua causa, longe abest. A me hae paginae videntur procul volavisse, ad longinquum locum. Quamquam hic liber non in finibus sit meis, erat mihi emendus quod tempore eo reliquo latine scribere multas litteras discam. Peius enim scio vos me latine scribere scire! ...

Basic translation (just a quickie)

For a while i've been looking for a translation of the word 'Control' as in 'the control of oneself' or 'control of surrounding events'
I've found rough translations on a couple of online dictionaries but i thought i'd be better to get it from some people who'll know for sure.

Please accept my apologies if these posts are dime-a-dozen.
Thanks for your help

Prose Composition II.

Have a go, this will be interesting. I have this text as an official standard. Although I'm not telling you what. And I've replaced many words, and added vocabulary below.

Anyway, translate:

"Supines are forbidden.

Once Piglet, who had been a very famous Ostrich a many ...

What materials are the best?

I am new to Latin but I had some previous experience in foreign (romance) languages such as French and Spanish. So I am wondering if there are any great materials avaliable for my latin, preferably materials in which jargons are minimized. Looking forward to your reply.

Cheers
