Canine (Spinoff from Adjective Agreement" in the Learni

Postby Keesa » Sun Aug 10, 2003 12:30 am

This is a spinoff from the thread "Adjective agreement" in the Learning Latin forum...<br /><br />As far as I can tell, my dog responds to the sounds that I give her, not to the actual commands. So, if I had trained her to respond to "Sit" in Latin, rather than English (what is the Latin for "sit", anyway?) she would recognize the sound, rather than the word...and I don't think that the adjective agreements would confuse her. She's much too smart to take up Latin. ;D (Just kidding, of course!) <br /><br />Keesa

I can only imagine how "frustrating" it must be for your friends to try to give commands in English to your dog. ;D<br /><br />I don't have a dog yet, but plan to in the future. Will have to try some Latin training then... <br />

As far as I know, the Latin verb for sit is "sedêre," so you may want to teach it, "Sedê!" for "Sit!."<br /><br />If this is wrong, perhaps one of the more expreienced members will correct me. :)

sede means "remain seated". "Sit" would be side or conside. Tricky verbs.

Ahh! So to tell her to sit, I would say "side", and to tell her to stay, I would say "sede"? <br /><br />Side, sede, salvere dias. <br />Sit, stay, save the day. <br /><br />That, by the way, is the first time I've ever tried to construct a sentence in Latin...perhaps someone could correct it for me, if I've made mistakes? <br /><br />Keesa

*from vague questionable memory* <br /><br />is save 'servare'; if so the imperative would be serva or for two dogs servate<br /><br /> ???

Dias is Latin "days" as it became in Spanish. Say diem. It is not Vietnamese. <br /><br />By the way, what means "save the day", diem serva(te) ?

"Sit, stay, save the day" is a quote from a kids show my sister and I used to watch (Wishbone) which featured a talking dog...He said that a lot, and Colette and I still bat it back and forth when we're talking about the commands "sit" and "stay" in the same sentence. <br /><br />Keesa
