We're getting restless

Post by benissimus » Sat Aug 02, 2003 6:37 pm

I notice my Latin brethren getting anxious, seeing that the Greeks now have two fora, while the Romans have but one. The Latin forum is also much larger... :o<br /><br />Too bad there aren't as many people familiar with the other brands of Latin...

No, that doesn't seem equitable, does it! <br /><br />I never knew there were other flavours of Latin. Why don't you enlighten the rest us... ;)

[quote author=benissimus link=board=6;threadid=349;start=0#2551 date=1059849430]<br />two fora<br />[/quote]<br /><br />That merits a "you the man françis!".<br /><br />How about medieval Latin? Pity B.L.D wrote not one of that...<br /><br />Or just a forum titled "Subjunctiveses" :o

There could be a separate forum for discussing Latin literature and prose style or pehaps a forum for Neo-Latin.

the question is whether a second latin forum is really necessary, or whether we'd be doing it simply because greek has two ;)

I prefer one anyway, but I would feel a little more secure if I had a back-up one ;)<br /><br />The problem is that Vulgar Latin, Ecclesiastical Latin, Ancient (Ancient, Ancient) Latin, and Neo-Latin are not wholly and distinctly different except for in vocabulary and pronunciation. It's kind of nice having one forum heavily saturated in Latin as opposed to two fora heavily diluted :D
