Well, I sorta just started latin, but I'll entertain people's curiosities if you wish. I do have the book, after all. Here are some of the words I've memorized though. Use them in conversation to confuse people! I'll cover the pronunciation before any words though.

"Ae" is pronounced, "I" as in, "I went to the store".

There is no "w" in Latin, because the letter "V" makes the W sound. SO it's like.....to use Josiah's example, We for Wendetta. Makes things rather confusing.

"is" is pronounced "ees" like, "Reeses".


Um, that's all I can think of at the moment. If anyone wants to know a word in Latin, I'll do my best to entertain the thought.

But to start it up, something Silver will find interesting. MK too.

"Silva" means Forest. Of course, it's pronounces, "Silwah", but still.

Either of you know how to say 'forever'? How about 'eternal'?

Late post, sorry. Lessee here, going on what resources I have, I can't find either. Semper is always. Diu means "For a long time".

Yeah...don't know what that means....so...still open for questions.....

And just so I can legally bump the thread and stuff, some things I forgot to post earlier.


Every word in Latin has a gender. It's either masculine, feminine, or neuter. Gender often dictates what the endings are....

Speaking of endings, there are five cases, six actually, but one's the same as another one.

nominative- subject of sentence
genitive- when something is possessing something
dative- indirect object of sentence
accusative- direct object of a sentence
ablative- most everything else.
vocative-when you're calling someone by name.

Now, there are other ways to use those cases, those are just the most common uses.

I, too, am in Latin I, and, so far, have been doing better than Stevenson ( :P ). But that's not the point.

When you listed the cases, you incorrectly said vocative endings are the same as another (not specifically, but it was implied), whereas a 2nd declension, AND masculine noun ending in -us or -ius in the nominative has the ending instead changed to -e or -i respectively in the vocative case. But otherwise it's the same.

Sorry to sound a little bit know-it-all-ish, but I like picking on Stevenson.
Anyway, Shadowman, "Ave Caesar, morituri te salutant!" means "Hail Caesar, those about to die salute you!"
I may be a little off as I'm going on only a Latin I textbook, and a little less than a semester course for this. I do know though, that "salutant" is "they greet", "morituri" is a form of the word that means "die", and I believe "te" is a form of the pronoun "you".

And good luck on the Latin Test this week Stevenson.

Sorry to double post, but I found one of the words that Josiah asked for a while back, eternal in latin is "eternus." And, as an added bonus, eternity is "infinitio"

Lastly, for randomness, "Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari?"
"How much wood would a woodchuck chuck is a woodchuck could chuck wood?"

"Ave Caesar, morituri te salutant"...It looks familiar. *grabs a book and checks* Ah. My copy of "Heart of Darkness and Selected Readings" says in the endnotes that "Ave...morituri te salutant" translates into "Hail!...those who are about to die salute you." Apparently, gladiators said it upon entering the ring.

And, uh, the only Latin I know (other than random terms used in piano theory and what not) is "dulce et decorum est pro patria mori." Which was basically memorized from the last two lines of "Dulce et Decorum est" by Wilfred Owen. According to the questions following the poem, the quotation means "it is sweet and becoming to die for one's country." :/

ok, now for the cases. let us start with the 1st declension nouns.

Case. Singular plural
Nominative puella (girl) puellae(girls)
Genitive puellae (of a girl) puellārum(of girls)
Dative puellae (to/for a girl) puellīs (to/for girls)
Accusitive puellam (girl[direct object]) puellā (girls[D.O.])
Ablative puellā (by a girl) puellīs (by girls)

nominative is for subjects and predicate nominatives
Genitive is for possesion
Dative is for Indirect objects
Accusative is for Direct Objects
and Ablative is for prepositional phrases, which can be tricky in Latin

all 1st declension nouns in Latin are feminine exept for agricola, poēta, the Latin word for sailor, and the Latin word for chariotier. ok, I promise that the Consonants are tomarow. I may or may not be double posting here.
