Rude word

I've just noticed something. If a post contains a Latin word that contains the letters c-u-n-t, as many Latin words do, the word gets omitted from the post altogether. Major problem in the Agora I think.

Pronouncing sigma before a voiced consonant in the next word

For example (in the Iliad line 5):

Dio\j d' e0telei/eto boulh&

Should the sigma be voiced or unvoiced? Is it the same for singing as for speaking?

De hominis natura

Quot hora, pueri puellaeque? Hora philosophiae!

Agite amici, de natura hominis dicamus. Atque prima quaestio est:
“Utrum natura hominis est mala an bona? Cur :?: ”

(Obsecro autem vos responsum facilum et brevum scribere, quod potestas latinae scribendae mea parvula est) :oops:

In need of some latin dynamos

I have been attempting latin for quite awhile now, and I'm just starting to get the hang of it. I have my foot in the door, but I need help with a translation.

The fast horse enveloped shadow over man.

My attempt was:

ille equo firmo homo umbro super involvat.


Any help is GREATLY appreciated. As you can tell, I'm no professional.

Festina Lente

This is one of the sentences in Ch.1 of Wheelock.

It is from festino, festinare.

My question is, what tense/mood is "festina", as it does not fit in with present, future or imprefect indicative active.

Or is it an irregular conjugation?
