Who can write or speak Latin?

     LOL   

I tried to post a clever reply using Google translate English / Latin for  " damned if I can "  which gave me " si potero damnari "

when I translated it back to English, it gave me " you prune damnari "       

I shall be more careful using Google translate for business quotes in future :-)

I did 3 years of Latin during high school, but i'm sad to say it's practically all gone now ! I speak Greek though (as I'm of Greek descent), does that count ?

That why you never use GoOgLe TrAnSlAtOr  :P

Now I didn't get to the passive infinitives (ari)

"potero" should be "possum"

Otherwise the latin is correct


Non possum ego, paenitet.

Are you sure? :P

Close enough. :)

Using Bad Translator :

Original text (from Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot speech) :
"Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives."

Result (back and forth 18 times with Bing) :
"If you look at mine. All I know of love 6. To every man, to which the ears and all."

I did 4. And 2 of German. I remember so little of that now, {mumble} years later.

We read Caesar, Cicero, Pliny, Ovid, Virgil, and few other things. I learned more about English in Latin class than I learned in any English class.

I am a Freshman in college and I took Latin all three years in middle school and all four years in high school. a ae ae am ?, ae ar?m ?s ?s ?s (all the way to) X is ? X ?, a ium ibus a ibus. That is as far as I can remember the noun endings. I know the verb endings like the subjunctive, aud?atur (ex. tac?te tam aud?amus, translated to: Shut up, so that we may hear!)  XD

I is edumakated  :P

The thing that is raising my eyebrow is that you claim to be from Kentucky? They teach Latin in Kentucky? Outside of a catholic school (or a magnet school or similar), I can't imagine that. Heck, I can't imagine quality education in Kentucky at all (probably better than West Virginia, though!)...

:D

You sound like you might be one of the "lucky ones" - heck, I honestly wonder just how I managed to fare so well given where I grew up originally...

My Australian Latin teacher came to Lexington, Ky to learn Latin. Coincidently, he said Lexintonia is the Latin capital of the world.

Well, a google search does seem to back up that assertion; at least there seems to be a fair number of places teaching it. The greater question in my mind is "of all potential places, why KY"?

Not all of us here in Ky are from Hicville. (place "laugh" emoji here)
