Can any of you guys speak Latin? I'm trying to translate this phrase into Latin. "Latin is not spoken in this place"
Thanks, MJC

That was along time ago I suggest you get hold of an older Catholic Priest a lot of them were pretty good with the Dead Language. The thing that stuck was Panae Insula, almost an Island, hence Penninsula. Mind like a steel trap just happens to be rusted shut.

Look at http://users.snowcrest.net/donnelly/piglatin.html although not what you are looking for it is quite amusing. Why anyone would spend hours producing a web site that produces gobledegook is beyond me

Don't ask me why I know this, but:


Let's just say I am planning a fishing trip to Latintania, and leave it at that, OK?

Non illigitimus carborundum!

Actually had a sign in my office in Seattle for 17+ years with this carved in a cedar plank. For the job, it was most appropriate.

(Non illigitimus carborundum) Too many years later, but I remember it as "Illigitimus non carborundum."

Loosly in to English it means: "Don't let the bastard grind you down."

Lingua Latina in hunc locum non dicatur. Or Lingua Latina hic non dicatur . Five years with Mr. Pusak, a lapsed Jebbie. Boy, did we learn Latin.

(And if you type "Latin phrases" in Google, you get 244,000 hits, including some funny stuff.)

Thank you Broadbill. I was able to figure parts of it out looking at some of those 244,000 pages but I sure couldn't put it all together. Take care, MJC

Gratia, Juro. At least I think so. ;)

What do you do when a classics major knocks on your door? Pay for the pizza.

Your version is correct!
