Side-effects of learning latin/greek

Has anyone noticed while learning one of the two languages, that their general usuage of grammar has become noticable?

For example, I sometimes find myself stoping and thinking about how I am going to write or say something. Even reading general material from different sources, I seem to find myself finding mistakes in other peoples grammar. I seem to sound more like my english teacher from way back in school.

A most useful word: catatartarosis

So, I've been reading Apollodorus recently - sometimes useful when you're slogging your way through Hesiod - and I ran across a wonderful word.

katatartaro/w v.tr. to throw down into Tartarus

This could be useful in the scumbag spammer challenge:

Succurite O Sodales (S. O. S)

Hey you all,

I think the Frensh can use our help right now. In France they are planning to stop teaching Latin and Greek in high school! We all now that would be a shame and a sign of immorality. We are all believers in the advantages of Latin and Greek, so I think we all have the moral duty to sign the following petition to keep Latin and Greek in the High School system! ...
