yet another latin translator..

http://www.levity.com/alchemy/latin/latintrans.html

This is more like one of the dictionaries, but it does it on the whole lump of words in the sentence. Could be also useful for checking one's own latin compsition and spelling. How accurate is it? I'm a total novice in latin and in no situation to judge. ;) Found this while looking for another latin dictionary site to ...

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 ...

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 ...
