  7. What languages sound pretty to you? And what ones sound awful?

    I have always found the Romance languages, cliché as it is, to be exceptionally attractive. (Hence my having studied a bunch of them.) There's that nice staccato consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel quality of Spanish or Italian, or the softer, fuzzier...

  15. [Latin] Filum latinum attemptemus!

    In scola lingua Latina discebam sed principaliter scripta Latina in linguam Germanicam transferebamus. Praeterea dehinc decennium praeteriit. Ergo sententias latinas scribere negotium incredibile difficultate est.
