Limited Latin (from "About To Latine")

Quote from: bingley on August 10, 2003, 10:42:37 PM <br />We can say things in English we can't easily say in Latin, so English is limited? <br /><br />Could you explain how you reach this conclusion? Surely the limitation (if there is one) would be on Latin's side. <br /> <br /><br /><br />If you think about it - and here we're getting more into "Academy" subject matter.... every language has limitations in some way ...

Bono Vox?

Someone was watching mtv the other day, and I overheard a segment about a musician named "Bono Vox." It was said to mean, "good voice" in Latin, but that can't be right. Could Bono Vox, with Bono in the dative or ablative, actually mean something in Latin? Perhaps "voice produced by a good man?"

Profile Language Pack

<br />There's a little section near the bottom of Profile editing called "Language Pack You Wish to Use". Does anyone know what it means? Is there any difference viewing this website when you choose Dutch, German or Finish? Why aren't other languages offered as options?<br /><br />

Question regarding the passive periphrastic tense.

If the passive periphrastic employs the dative case in place of the ablative of agent to specify the person by whom the action was completed, how then would one specify an indirect object employing the passive periphrastic? ???<br /><br />e.g. Hic liber mihi laudatus est - I ought to read this book.<br /><br />How would one say "I ought to read this book to you"?<br /><br />Normally the ablative would be used to specify the ...

Which one, which one?

Which Latin reader should I start with? If they're all above my level, which one should I dangle in front of my nose to keep me going in my grammar books on slump days? There are so many to choose from...<br /><br />Keesa

"Just D'Ooge It" (From Prospecting in Used Booksto

Why Latin? (Spinoff from Mythology in Latin)

Did you guys learn latin just out of curiosity or is it related with your studies/jobs??<br /><br />Regards,<br /><br />Fulya <br /><br />I was actually learning Greek, to get a head start for college and to read Homer, but when I looked at all the great Latin resources, I couldn't pass it up! I love learning new languages, as I'm sure you'll realize when you look around the forum. <br /><br />Keesa
