Verba aliorum

- Latinbloggsfavoriten Ola Wikander har en hemsida, med anspelningar på såväl 'gamla klang' som gnosticism. Missa inte listan på språk han gillar!

- Poeta laureatus Omar har börjat blogga.

-På tal om lagerkrönta poeter, så gå och gratta Malte samt läs ngra av de fina recensionerna. Poetae existimationes benevolentissimas gratulor!

-På den ständiga favoriten Go fug yourself förstår de sig på latinlärare:

"...when I was in high school, we had a Latin teacher who was sort of quirky and interesting, but in a very... sort of scholastic-seeming way. Well, I guess she had some kind of crisis, because she left the school under a cloud of mystery, but not before donating a huge box of clothing to the school's drama department, which I was involved in (I know, big surprise, right?). In the box were several elaborate beaded, ruffled, neon gowns, all of which were cut to the navel. We later learned that Lady Latin had been a nationally ranked ballroom dancer until she had been BANNED FOR LIFE from the National Ballroom Dancing Association -- or whatever the national ballroom dancing association is called -- for behavior not befitting a ballroom dancer. The rumor, which was naturally immediately accepted as truth, was that she had been caught in a particularly shocking and perverse orgy, corrupting her fellow dancers, probably so as to throw them off their dance-game, but my guess from the adult perspective is that maybe none of this actually happened and she just decided she was tired of nude t-strap sandals and high school girls and quit ballroom dancing and teaching, in that order, and ran off to somewhere more interesting to do something else. " (Kanske fick en doktorandplats)

- Jag älskar böcker av detta slag.

-Mater gillar denna gradstudent blogg.
(Hur är det egentligen med doktoranders bloggande i Sverige? Inte lika spritt som i USA kan jag tro, men finns det något register eller nätverk? Någon som vet?)

Nämen, både latin och referenser till favoriten gofugyourself, det här blir bara bättre och bättre! :-)

Vad gäller latinet i juridiken så tar man sig inte vidare än gamla godingar som "pacta sunt servanda" och "culpa in contrahendo" normalt sett. Romersk rätt *lät* lovande men den lilla skriften om "Den juridiska metodlärans utveckling under 1800-talet" tog liksom musten ur mig...

Googlar inte alla latinska sentenser? (Det hela började med en fråga på en community för linguaphiles som jag hänger i, och ja, det ena följde på den andra som vi säger...)
