I got a Latin phrase for you:
The Queen is law.
Thank You! ... i like it ... ... Regina Lex ... THE QUEEN IS LAW! ...
This makes me have more questions ... a Latin phrase? ... where is Latin?
What exactly does it mean, when a phrase is a "Latin" one?
The language of Latin.
Regina = Queen
Lex = law
Latin is/was the language of science, law, eccleisiastics, and more.
Is the language tied to a land? If so, which?
More a people ... In this case, the Romans.
If we are to select a land, Italy .... Way in the past....
Thank You Brother Shikamaru ... for trying to relieve me of some of my ignorance ...
Okay ... you've answered my question wonderfully ... but it makes me wanna ask more.
If Italy is the land ... and they have the language Italian ... i suppose Latin came before it?
Do people in Italy, still speak Latin ... does anyone speak Latin today ... more than for the sake of reference?
Okay ... i'm gonna move these "Latin" posts to a new thread ... so be on the lookout ... and thanks again!
Peace and Blessings Family,
Brother Shikamaru shared a Latin phrase with me ...
The Queen is law.
Which made me wonder about Latin, and he so graciously entertained my queries.
I'm going to move those posts to this thread ... they are above.
If you have more to add on, please do.
Latin is the mother language. Italian came much after. Italian is one of the romance languages.
Roman Catholic priests still use and speak Latin as well as enthusiasts and academics.
Many European classics were written in Latin.
Wikipedia has quite a bit of information on the Latin language.
Okay ... you've given me a lot!
I have been thoroughly encouraged to do some learning on my own and come back and report (and problee ask more).
You really have given me a lot ... THANK YOU !!!
You're The Best!
Sister it's not like Spanish and English, in that ... Spain and England ... are lands on the map right now.
Was there a Latin on the map at one time?
Separate names with a comma.
