Just made this video of Adam speaking Latin (+ German) in The Last Duel & Silence.
The senteces he says are below:
In The Last Duel:
- Semper amorem minui vel crescere constat 
- Unam feminam nil prohibet a duobus amari et a duabus mulieribus unum 
- the third sentence is by greek philosopher Plato and I couldn't find a correct latin translated version. 
German, they're talking about the protagonist of a book (Parsifal): 
Jacques: Sag mir (tell me) - Marguerite: Er ist naiv und dumm (he's naive and stupid) / ich bewundere das (I admire that). 
J: Er weisst was er will und er gibt nicht auf, bis er es erreicht. Grosse Geiste gehoeren zusammen. (He knows what he wants and doesn't surrender, until he obtains it. Great souls go together). 
In Silence: -Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum, benedicta tu in mulieribus...  - In nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti... 
 - Introibo ad altare Dei, ad Deum qui laetificat juventutem meam. Júdica me, Deus, et discérne causam meam de gente non sancta, ab hómine iníquo, et dolóso érue me. Quia tu es, Deus, fortitúdo mea: quare me repulísti? et quare tristis incédo, dum afflígit me inimícus? 
- Ne permittas me separari a Te. Ab hoste maligno defende me. In hora mortis meae voca me, et jube me venire ad Te, Ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem Te. In saecula saeculorum. Amen.

I don't know who cares about this, but I really want to point something out of this second episode.
The Pompeii scene, more precisely, Loki speaking Latin.
The serie is fully of perfectly crafted details and, being a latin student, I wanted to talk about this.
The latin you hear Loki speaking is historically correct, and I am not talking about the grammar, but the pronunciation.
There are two pronunciations of the latin language: the classic, also known "restituta", and the ecclesiastic.
The ecclesiastic pronunciation is so called because it bloomed from the spreading of Christianity, it's considered the traditional pronunciation and it's usually the one they teach you in school, so the most common, but it's not the one used by Romans.
Romans talked with the classic or "restituta" pronunciation, which presents differences reguarding some specific consonants or group of letters.
The most common example is that the name "Cicero", which you would read in the ecclesiastic pronunciation with a "c" that sounds like an "s", was pronounced by Romans as "Kikero".
Or, for example, the letter "v" was always pronounced as "u".
And I am telling you this because Loki, in the serie, speaks with a "restituta" or classic pronunciation, that is historically correct.
You might overlook this, saying he should speak every language in the world due go the Allspeak or All-Tongue, but we are shown in the scene of the Gobi desert it's not like that.
So, the fact that Loki actually knows Latin and the correct Latin pronunciation from the era he was in, as a latin student, really makes me happy.
I would like to thank whoever cured this detail, because they did a marvelous job.

thinking about how perfect it is that the latin word for toad is "bufo." like someone back then looked at a toad and was like "hmm. this looks like a bufo to me" and they were right

i want to be a part of a knit-tight friendship group where we translate papers into greek for fun, jumble latin into sentences, stay up till 3 am highly-caffeinated doing jigsaws, scribbling poetry in biro on public spaces, driving anywhere with no decided destination, using darling and sweetheart but platonically. i want it so bad it physically hurts.

A ghost speak headcanon I have is that Latin was originally a ghost language.
That's why all the summongings are in Latin and why ghosts will speak in Latin sometimes when speaking to humans.
This is because there are a lot of different ghost languages that fall under ghost speak but Latin was the easiest one for humans to learn (because it was the most similar to a normal human language). That's why people say "Latin is a dead language", it's a miss hearing, a miss translation over the ages in the long game of telephone that is history.
Latin isn't a dead language, Latin is the language of the dead.

21.01.24 || New year, same old me with the pics from my study abroad two years ago. Where does the time go?
Term started late this year due to covid, but classes finally started last week. I’m taking three language courses and am in absolute heaven right now. I feel like I finally have the time to focus on the smallest details of Greek and Latin and can nerd out over grammar constructions with my professors. Maybe teaching a language is my true calling, since I’m at my happiest in a language class.
Also lerne ich Deutsch und lese Der Kleine Prinz. Wo sind die Deutschsprache studyblrs?
