RA 03 - Latin by Genidoxian RA 03 - Latin by Genidoxian
This is how I study for the National Latin Exam. :B

Feel free to point out any grammar errors or poor word choices.

Literal translation (including word order)
1: Hello, computer. I desire one free internet, if it pleases you. (Latin has no true "please". "Si placat te" is the closest expression used.)
2: Maaayybeee if these wires I twiddle...
>>You're an idiot.
>>What, no, why?
3: To demonstrate, a picture of your epic failure with my iPhone I will take.

For those of you who are as nerdy as me, I have officially decided that the Latin for "iPhone" is fifth declension masculine. It just so happens that the ablative form ends in "e". :P

YESYESYESYESYES!!! AMO TE!!!

By the way, that 'demonstrare' would work better if you put it after an 'ut' to make it a purpose clause (make demonstrare subjunctive); then you would move that whole purpose clause to the end of the sentence.

But FREAKIN' FANTASTIC JOB!!!

I always thought 'computer' was already a Latin word.

For please can't you also say "amabo te", "I will love you". I've never seen the way you said it , so for all I know it might be better, but my Latin professor and our book of speaker(Cicero, etc.) uses that. Just wondering. Thought this was an awesome idea by the way.

:3 This makes my day. I wish I knew enough Latin to help the project along. :| I'll just have to laugh at it instead.

And again...
1: "ordinatre" := "ordinator", "capto" := "velim", "si placat te" := "si tibi videtur"
2: "hanc filum inquieto" := "haec fila inter se immittam"
3: "demonstrare" := "ad demonstrandum" or "ut demonstrem", "picturam" := "imaginem", "accipiam" := "faciam"
Nice job, btw!
