Quo iratus fio

Cur omnes in hoc foro non saepe nunc loquuntur? Quam ob rem forum hoc fit tardius? Antea amabam omnia verba e Populo textkitis venientia; nunc tamen est nihil amandum.

Fiat forum simile foro aliorum dierum acriusque. Si non ita faciatis, Deus me hortetur ut omnibus hic mulieribus quibusque hominibusque unam columbam sugentem mittam. Cognosco vos non amavisse fabulam illam in Agora dictam. Saevior sum.

Denique, si nec latinam scias nec latine loquaris faciendus es. Anglice ...

european commissioners

The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been
reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European
communications,
rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British government conceded that
English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a
five-year phased plan for
what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for
short).

In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft ...

Victorian rhimes

i have a question.
how can the two last lines rhime?
"To thee we sing, our holiest, fairest god,
The One who in that awful chaos trod
And woke the Elements by Law of Love
To teeming worlds in harmony to move."
(a prize to who ever recognises it. hint: its a translation.)
was the pronunciation different in the victorian times?
here is more:
"Come nestle closely with those lips of love
And balmy breath, ...

Le subjonctif imparfait

The french imperfect subjunctive is only used formally and in literature.

For me it is a loser of a 'tense'. French verbs for me are difficulter than latin verbs. At least in latin there is a point to everything and at least I can find the conjugations of irregular verbs' imperfect subjunctives as it is a commonly occurring subjunctive.

In french "Il fallait qu'il parlat", I wrote something like that, and my teacher thought that ...

"Thygater hemon, ..."

I'd like to compose a birth blessing for my daughter.
I'm attending a parents' lesson these weekends and on this coming Saturday I'm supposed to come with one, with which to practice the blessing.

It's supposed to be written in Korean, but I'd like to make a greek version(OR translation), too.

What I'm having in mind is like this.(Okay you laugh at it, but please help me.) :) ...

"The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco

A while back, somebody here (I want to say Carola) mentioned "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco ... so I eventually picked it up. It's a really good murder mystery, and I am having a difficult time putting the book down. It takes place in an Italian abbey in 1327, and the book has Latin scattered throughout the book. Very neat! The have this really cool library too!

Have any of you read ...
