English to Latin

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.

Not even close but it has the right feel

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?

Bob! Great addition!!

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.
