Vita Buriae - Pars Prima

<br /><br /> Avete! Nomen meum est Buria Bogatir, etiam filius vaccae appellatus. Ego contra trium, sex, duodecim capitum dracones dimicavi. Omnes perierunt, omnes interfeci.

Re:"Thinking" Latin

I think every language has its proper peculiarities, like word order, accentuation...Its just a matter of us language students internalize gradually this "alien" patterns till they become simpler to us.

Re:"Thinking" Latin

But what is the fun on translating?<br />Why toil exaustively upon dictionaries trying to figure out the exact meaning word by word when you can just make it like in english?<br />I can read shakespeare in my native language or try<br />it through english...And I know, in english is a lot funnier.
