I found this question (technically statement):
I wonder how you say "Protect Family, Sex up Bitches, Hunt Prey" in latin?
Seems like something this community can handle

ok, my latin teacher, whom i adore, is retiring which really really sucks cause it means i dont get to have her for my senior year. that and the fact that w/two really bad quizes, my 3rd quarter just dropped from an a to a b+ are very big motivations for me to take on this super awesome extra credit project. me and my friend lost_accent are making a multi-media map of hell. but i need a good map to work from, one that shows the entry cave and all the rivers and the two paths and who "lives" where. if you have any suggestions that would be awesome.

I don't know anyone in this group, but I am a devoted latin nerd and I loved the Book IV parody thing. A couple other of my lovely latin nerd friends may join too, we're all from D.C./same school.

[edit]
gleeful announcement: my latin class, or extended latin class (parts of latin iii, iv and v) is going to italy! in 19 days! italy!

Hey guys.
I'm in college now, and I've started to chip away at my Latin major requirements. I'm going to school at the same university the National Latin Exam calls home, which excites me far too much. My Latin professor taught my class that 4th declension neuter goes as such:
-u
-us
-ui
-u
-u
I've always been taught that the dative singular 4th neuter is -u, and I looked it up in 3 different books(including the book we use, the world-reknowned Wheelock), and they all side with me. Is there an alternate form that yall know of? Because seriously, it just looks weird. Maybe she got confused for a minute and gave the 4th masculine, but I dunno. She stands by her statement.
I feel kind of awkward in her class-I have a hard time adjusting to the little things, and a lot of her little things are different. The way she pronounces things. The way she orders tenses. The fact that she's a macron Nazi. And oh man, I about die every time we do group reading-my class is an intro class, so no one knows how to pronounce anything. It sounds like a high school play reading, with a pause between each word. NO feeling whatsoever. We group read one of Cicero's speeches against Catiline, and it was bad. I'm learning a lot of little stuff I didn't pick up on before, though, and I imagine it'll be a good GPA boost.
How's life for the rest of you?

Olim in Venetia habitabat parva puella qui appelabatur Aurelia.

Aurelia hababat familiam ingentam. Erant eius tres frateris, Lucius, Rufus, et Iulus. Erant eius tria sororis, Anna, Ursa, erat Ennia et erat ipsa, Aurelia. Habitabant cum eius parentis, Claudia et Marcus Valerius. Et etiam erat eius canis, Sirius.

Er. Basically, slap me if you find anything horribly ungrammatical. The English word order is meant to be that way. *threatening* And if you can think up something better than "Ursa", please do. Ursula and Urania aren't fun, and I'd rather not call her sister a bear.

Hey. Someone had to post something here eventually. This is a version of the fight between Dido Aeneas in Act IV that I wrote with kellibus  a few months ago. Have fun. Here it is:

In which the son of Venus finds himself entrapped by the raging and love-sick Queen of CarthageCollapse )

I don't know why I felt like an undelete at 2:40 in the morning.

Call it a power trip. A power trip on an unbelievably insignificant and microscopic scale.

Besides, with this very, very slow LiveJournal.com we've been having recently, every action takes on an unusual significance.

But this still is a waste of a good LJ name.
