So you think English [or your native tongue] is hard? Try translating this in an hour!


#1

Sorry I have to use an image for this, thought I could find the passage online. Also sorry for the writing all over it (someone had this book before me). Nevertheless, BEHOLD!


#2

Latin is so much easier than English. If English had declensions I would be so happy.


#3

We’ve been learning all about present subjunctives and PPPs and worst of all, passive words that are actually not passive! It’s terrible D:


#4

I still find English easier tho.

I can write English better than i do with my native language(Greek)


#5

I find English easy just cause I’ve grown up with lol. Latin hurts my brain, but not as much as Spanish (I think i just wasn’t good at the oral stuff, at least latin’s all writing lol)

Hrmm… Calendar Year 9 A.D. October. The consuls M. Cicerone and C Antonio, C. Octavius is born, that afterwards first leader Rome he became.

UGH, I hate conjugation of latin…

In the Calendar Year October, 9 A.D., the Conculs M. Cicerone & C Antonio became leaders of Rome, and C Octavius was born after.

That… doesn’t sound quite right. Four years of the stuff and I still can’t read it/write it.

BUT… it was a GREAT help in understanding the basics of english vocabulary.

The only thing I walked away from with latin was a tip from my teacher.

Semper ubi sub ubi.

You catch the drift why I don’t bother to use my french to correct the obvious weirdness

@AlbinoGoliath Can you decipher it


#10

why are you bringing me every where
i cant believe its not butter


#11

I challenge you to read it to me. I would be VERY impressed if you could! :wink:

So would a linguist…


#12

I don’t know. I prefer Egyptian hieroglyphs


#13

I could probably translate eventually, but it would take like at least and hour and a half. I already have the first two paragraphs done with part of the third. However, it’s not for a grade and I’m tempted not to do it. lol

It would be hard to speak proper Latin anyway, considering the language is extinct. :stuck_out_tongue:
