sec...sec

Post by Episcopus » Sat Apr 30, 2005 5:34 pm

I propose a new conjunction in the english language, sec which is the inverse of reason. It might bring us closer to latin.

e.c.

I went to town cos I was bored and I had nothing else to do

I went to town sec I was bored sec I had nothing else to do

meaning not because ... nor because ... [but] ... cos

Kopio - you just said "I wasn't going to reply to this not because I wasn't sure I'd get it right but because I didn't want to sound stupid."

Nonsense.

Actually the second sec i.e. cos des Inversen Theorys would mean nor because and a but may come afterwards (nicht...sondern). Thanks again you twat,

I won’t be using this Episcopal dialect, sec I harbour ill will toward the bishop, sec I don’t think it would be useful, sec I couldn’t be f….ree from the swear filter, sec carbon is green, but no-one would have the slightest clue what I was on about.

Can I add something? In Latin, we were talking about adding et and -que to english words and the Greek "ge"(sp?) for like. so it would be "Brittney Ique were ge at the mall et we ge bought these really cute shoes sec they were bright pink!" of course I would ge never talk like that!

This board is intended for Classical studies, not trigonometry, so shut it with your "sec" and "cos." ;)
