Is there an obscure rule, subsumed with the other rules by the concept 'Euphony of Consonants,' to which one can ascribe the present perfect active form of the verb pe/mpw being pe/pomfa? I really do not want to have to memorize six principal parts of each verb; the four principal parts of Latin verbs are hard enough to remember... (all I do is complain ;) )

Sin or not

May one question oneself: is a really deeply evil/lustful/immoral/murderous etc. thought a sin? <br />And how does it relate to actually completing the action of which one thinks?<br /><br />For many say bad thought is a sin however most people can not help the odd evil totally unacceptable disgusting uncharacteristic thought that suddenly appears without any previous warning. <br /><br />And 99.9999% of the time no one ever even thinks of actually murdering their teacher ...

I have a lot of comments (especially by Elucubrator) about the length patterns for words and such, and the different arrangements (i.e. hendecasyllabic, dactylic), but I am still incredibly vague on what it actually is.
