Pleased to be here

Post by LosChristabel » Mon Jul 26, 2004 6:08 am

I go by Desdinova or Los Christabel. My interests are writing and linguistics. My goals are conversational and Liturgical Latin. Actually right now, I can't think of much to say about myself.

Please be nice to me. I'm a nOOb (here, at least) I hope never to misuse the subjunctive. :D

Welcome! I'm a writer myself, studying French and Latin (and Greek and Gaelic and Spanish, although I've laid those aside for the summer). I study more classical Latin, though, or whatever it's called. Older Latin.

What sort of things do you write?

Again, welcome to Textkit. I hope we can help you out with your Latin!

Welcome. We'll be nice to you alright.
I won't call you a nOOb untill I know whether I am insulting or complimenting you. (What in the world is a nOOb?)

Salve, Desdinova!

We share a goal in common, that of conversational Latin, which I'd be happy to explore with you at some point. The advice from some of the pundits here has certainly helped me along in that course.

My interests also are largely writing and linguistics (and often combinations of the two), in particular comparative philology and novel-writing. I'm also a die-hard lover of all languages, from the Classical Latin, Greek, and Sanskrit, to the modern Romance tongues, modern Greek, and Hindi, and also the Germanic languages, from High German to Old English, to the Celtic tongues, in particular Irish Gaelic, to the Semitic tongues, from Hebrew to Aramaic to Phoenecian to Arabic to Ancient Egyptian, as well as the Eastern languages, from Japanese to Korean to Chinese to Thai; and a new peculiar interest now, Native American languages, especially Iroquoian, and also their relatives the Dravidian tongues, and their relatives Finnish and Hungarian and Etruscan. Oh yah, Elvish too. :) (But they don't think that one counts here. ;) )

Oh, I've misused the subjunctive lots of times. Worst thing that happened was Benissimus' sudden migraine; but he got better. :D

I have found that there are no "n00bs" here. The intelligent and proficient at textkit are also friendly and benevolent.

How do you decline "n00B" ?
