[LINK] RFC: Latin for 'and'?
Sun, 21 Oct 2001 20:51:59 +1000
Okay Link Institute, here's one for you.
I need to know the Latin for 'and' (and, as usual, I need to know it now).
I appreciate that 'and' is a highly complex concept, and in any given
language it could have multiple equivalents, depending.
I have in mind the translation of 'Non-Interference and Buyer Beware'
(i.e. 'Laissez Faire <conjunction> Caveat Emptor').
Yes, I realise that the former is French and the latter Latin, so I
could use the French 'et', or (just to be obstreperous) the German
'und' or, say, the Hindi 'aura'.
I couldn't work out the results I got from http://www.histopia.nl/
Results for "and"
(+ subj.) (command) to ut
(abl.) at the command of iussu
(adv. and conj.) how quam
(adv.) and itaque
(beginning sentence) and quod
(conj.) and yet atqui <==== this one?
(dat.) me /give ME land mihi
(dep.) to wander palor
(pl.) thousands. milia
a demand postulatio
So much for remembering 'et tu Brute'. I thought Big Julie spoke
Latin, but I guess it must have been French ...
