Today's gaming night again, yesterday I slept most of the time to recuperate and relax, which was badly needed after the stressful week. But now I'm in for some games and lots of fun! Yay!

Have a hoopy weekend!

If you'll excuse embarrassingly poor grammar, the latter rhymes in the Latin: Frater cum aliter pater

As in, "Quid accidit, frater cum aliter pater?"




Where did you learn your Latin ? just curious


Self-taught. Had some long holidays a few years ago, bought some primers and grammars from second hand book stores, good old text books that hadn't changed in the past 100 years before they were printed, which was decades ago. I didn't learn much and what I did learn I learned poorly. Those few words took me about fifteen minutes of struggle. My Latin's so bad I couldn't even tell you how mistakes are in the above. I just really wanted them to rhyme.

I've just fired them through google translate which mangles them, so, while it's pretty obvious what I was going for, it's intended to be:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
What is happening, brother with a different father?

I'll just hide for a few days while any classically educated FTLers correct my errors.


I was not going to be correcting grammar at all. Just thought there may be another who lived the life I used to live.


Learned Latin at school and uni, but it is always the less you use it, the more you forget it soblue

Haha me too, I was thumbing the old thread and like everyone had 31 thumbs but oh one with 32 thumbs! what happend!!! A random thumb haha


haha, it's funny because I wasn't referring to either one of you. The thumbing lurker hasn't posted anything (and I don't know if I've ever seen them post anything on here, but I am still fairly new).

I haven't seen him in here before, but I saw the name and thought he might be a relative or something... long lost brother? Brad, you in here still?

Edit: I have seen him in here, lots actually. The Avatar helps...

Interesting that they rhyme, as brother and father are both Germanic in origin. However, brother does almost rhyme with frater, and father almost rhymes with patre.


( mode = "major linguistic digression while I'm waiting for my vegetables to osmotically release their water before I put anything other than myself into a pickle for the first time in my life" )

Come with us now on a journey through time and space -- to the world of the Mighty Boosh.

(The Mighty Boo-ooosh!)

Back in the mists of history we see that German and Latin are both from the Indo-European group of languages, the oldest living exponent of which is Sanskrit. Admittedly, only a few people speak regularly it but it's still used.

Many of the core words of languages remain somewhat static over time, simply because they are so important they don't change. It would get really confusing really fast if they changed rapidly. Family connections are important to society so the words to describe them change quite slowly.

In Sanskrit we have mata which is cognate with (has a common origin with) the Latin mater and the English mother. Bhrātār, frater and brother display a less obvious connection until you look at the Greek intermediary phrater which was adopted into the Latin on its westward drift. Brother apparently bypassed this initial sound change and came into the Germanic family more directly. Similarly we have pita, pater, and, again less obviously, father.

In about the only linguistic law I can state, Grimm's Law (named after one of the famous brothers; it isn't a law that dictates how words are to be spoken and change but is only an observation of what has happened historically) observes that "p" changes into "f". In English the medial (in the middle of a word) "t" sound has often become "th". It has not changed so much in some other Germanic languages being sometimes "t" or "d" like Modern German Vater and Bruder. Svasar, soror, sister rounds out the set.

(Grimm's Law is more expansive than I have noted but that's for anyone interested to look up.)

Son and daughter in English and Sanskrit don't bear any relation with the Latin: filius and filia. Whereas the Germanic languages use quite separate words for them, the Romance languages use the feminine form of a masculine word for daughter. I wonder what that says about the cultures. Considering that many Roman girls only got the feminine form of their fathers' names it doesn't seem to have been all that user friendly to have been a woman there and then.

( / mode )


Brother linguist?

As for Modern German, some changes (not these ones though) are accounted for by the Second Consonant Shift.

Didn't you go to sleep a few hours ago? Maybe that's why the post rate slumped. Now you just have to learn how to post in your sleep.

But not while you're bicycling. Those kitty-kats don't need their caretaker having a high speed bicycle accident. Imagine the carnage from riding into a canal at a whole 10 km / h.

(Yes, as far as I know the Netherlands are all dikes, windmills and canals--and nude people sunbathing on rooftops.)


Hmmmm, should you not be sheering a sheep at the moment?


I can't do that. I have no opposable thumbs. I am a sheep!

New Zealand: The country of 24 million sheep--four million of whom think they're human.

(There is a NSFW response involving a homophone of "shearing" but I wouldn't want to give myself a reputation and I think there are ladies present.)

Goodnight Alysa. Remember to pull the plug out of your country so it doesn't flood if someone leaves the bath taps running.
