Speaking Latin

This may be a lame question (I didnt find it addressed on the last two pages of posts), but from books and classes how are people at actively using Latin, ie speaking, writing.

If for example you met someone from China who can only speak Chinese and Latin, and you can only speak English and Latin would you be able to become close friends (of course improvising on words too new for Latin)? Or do ...

Beggin for a Translation

Hi everybody,

I was wondering if anyone could translate the following prayer for me, a phonetic translation would be cool to. I'd do it myself & I just downloaded a few books on Latin, but even being optimistic, it will be a few months before I reach a level of proficiency :( , and it would be cool if I could put the prayer to use before ...

Quick Question

Reading Group

I was wondering... would there be any people interested in creating a Reading Group of Classic Literature? We could just choose a book each month, read it and discuss it, just for sheer pleasure. I assume that some people would use translations (as I would! :oops: ), but it would be great to discuss so many masterworks as there are in Greek and Latin Literature.

plurals of 1st declension Greek nouns


I'm just looking at New Latin Grammar, and I noticed that it does not give the plural forms of the Greek nouns. Why not? Do they not come up often?

Right now, I'm most interested in Persēs (Persian). Can anyone tell me the plurals?

Persēs (-a)
Persēn (-am)
Persē (-ā)

Ok I've been very mad about this but...I want to know the correct word for a greeting of saying hello. I pretty sure its ave, the latin word for hail but I've also been hearing that it could be saluto. I need to please know the right answer.

Also...I need translations of the following words:

Good Bye-Vale I pretty sure
Thank You-???
How are you?
I'm good
I'm feeling bad

Any help would be greatly ...
