Curses!

Post by benissimus » Tue Sep 23, 2003 10:38 pm

The Open Board has today surpassed the Latin Board in posts. I think it's because all of those crazy off-topic posts are no more.

<br />Is this a hint that we should be working harder on studying our Latin? ::)<br /><br />

That's a good thing, Benissimus...remember? We don't want off-topic posts. We've all been trying really hard to avoid them! ;)

Yeah, I suppose it is a good thing. But how come no strangers ever come around asking for translations anymore? And yes, Marie, I haven't been seeing very much homework out of you! We may have to have a parent-teacher conference :o

I just don't post them all because I wouldn't want you guys to get sick of all my questions. Ya, that's the reason.... ;)<br />

Ahhh! Stop it! I can't find the definition...that's not nice! <br /><br />I am not asking any one to post the definition, but how do I go about finding it?!

And how did you come across this word, benissimus? I assume you weren't wondering, now I wonder what the Latin would be for ....

"To really learn a word, you must read the word and the definition three times, then say the word aloud three times, then use it in a sentence three times." <br /><br />Can you use it in three sentences yet? ;)

Mariek gave the Latin forum a lively slap across the face. Now, however, with her being a moderator she posts not many topics.

Somehow I'm reminded of the bottle of oil joke in Aristophanes' The Frogs.

*laughing her head off*<br /><br />Yep bingley - likewise!<br /><br />And why should I have faith in the phallovitrobolus?<br />(Perhaps I don't want to know...) ;D

Hey, it's hard enough to make up sentences for a word when the word (not to mention the sentences!) is in English...I think he did very well!

What is that word! <br /><br />I would to that for words of many meanings but I am usually too tired and pressed for time.<br /><br />Like sumo, sumere, sumpsi, sumptus - to assume; take up (arms).<br /><br />And why is supplicium dare to suffer punishment! <br /><br />Sorry random groans :-X<br />
