In Sanskrit and modern Indian languages, the liquid consonant 'v' has the sound of 'w' before 'a', 'o', and 'u', but has the sound of English 'v' before 'e' and 'i'.

Commentarius de me ipso

Salvete omnes!

Mihi nomen est Mulciber. Ego sum vir mechanicus centum pedes altus et ex chalybe factus. Multa facere possum quae vos non potestis. Exempli gratia radios lucis et caloris ex oculis meis emittere possum, quibus oves explodere et silvas incendere me valde iuvat. Instrumentum quoddam quoque habeo, quo utendo calculos ex equorum ungulas extrahere possum.

Me delectat inter vos mortales vivere. Si enim genibus nitor, in fenestras domuum vestrarum videre possum. Me maxime iuvat ...

How do you pronounce ...

D'Ooge? What nationality did that name come from? And also, how do you pronounce it. Whenever I see the name I get an image who is oozing over in ... juice? fudge? ice? something edible?

Edit : Did I mention the alternative image - "D'ooge Dude!"

Rosetta Stone

Hello everyone. I have absolutely zero experience with latin. I plan ont aking Latin in college starting next fall. I want to have a decent feel for the language before I go in cold to the classroom. I was looking at the Rosetta Stone software and it really caught my eye. I tried out the demo and it taught me a few basic words in a great innovative way. For instance it would have "Canis" ...
