I can read the Greek letters but only know episkopos. In school it's basically a funky code and is class. It looks impressive, who is to know that I in fact can not write Ancient Greek?

Re:"Thinking" Latin

That's the whole bishop of it though - the sometimes ambiguous word order(for me). English makes emphasis obvious by stresses on certain words vocally but latib, bar the few O, Episcope! does this with word order.<br /><br />Look how many things the ablative can do without preposition.
