<br /><br />Oops. I somehow got into this rut last night (it was almost 1AM and my brain was shutting down!) thinking that aeger was the word for happy. <br /><br />Aeger = ill<br />laetus / alacer = happy.
<br /><br />I was walking through a park on Sunday where I saw some dogs and I thought about how neat it would be to have a dog and train it to respond to commands in Latin. Do you think that would be too confusing for the dog? <br />We all should talk Latin at home, it woulsd be easier!
<br /><br />Same in Indonesian. Dia serves for he or she. You can only refer to brother or sister with a clumsy circumlocution. Siblings are normally differentiated by age: kakak older sibling, adik younger sibling.Interestingly enough, in Chinese, the pronoun for "he" and "she" are exactly the same, so you don't know the gender of the person being referred to. <br />
