Well, at 3:30 am last "night" I was on an exercise rampage. Then I came across something strange, due to an understandable yet now corrected mistake.

Let's see if Allen and Greenfluff can answer this: what is the present 1st person singular subjunctive of "creare"?

Surely it can't be creem? I know that it would be pronounced "creh-em" but such an elegant language should not hold such childish subjunctivses.

Ponder that thought, or "fieri potest ut vos creem phasianum" :shock:

On the subject of creem, can some one tell me what "I will choose you to be turned into a pheasant"?

[EDIT] And also, or rather, "I will choose you as someone [of the type] to be turned into a pheasant".

Play around with the subjunctive of characteristic, or can an infinitive be used with creem?

according to "501 Latin Verbs", it is indeed creem.
