Caveat:


I am sicker than a dog and so posts will all come via a haze of extra strong cold medication (it's been so long since I've had a cold and not been preggers or nursing; I was actually looking forward to a nice big dose of Tylenol Cold but it's not as good as I remember) and broken sleep.

Apologies all around. Incidentally, if anyone can give me a good tip for remembering how to pronounce the word "caveat," I will be forever in your debt. Maybe I'll even hand out a prize. I have two words I live in fear of actually having to speak: caveat and cadaver. No clue, so I usually just mumble or trail off.

Well! I don't know if it's different in Canada, but the pronunciation for caveat in the US is cav' ee aht'--the first and last syllables are stressed (the first more than the last.)

Here's a little Latin trivia. It's pronounced "cah way aht" in Latin and means "let him beware." (sorry I was a Latin major and can't help myself sometimes)

As for cadaver, I always say that one: "cuh da' (short a) vuhr. (strong accent on the 2nd syllable.)

I love Latin. If I had another life running perpendicular to this one (I know that's not how I want to say it so I'm going to think about this sideways till I get there aha) SIMULTANEOUSLY to this one I would take a degree in Linguistics. I remain fascinated by language ever since my grade 11 English class when we deconstructed words....loved it.

Thank-you for helping me. I've copied and pasted your instructions and will put them in my wallet so that I can reach for them when these words need to be spoken. It's a lot more than you would think.

I thought long and hard about a degree in linguistics. I really enjoyed those classes that I took. My interests really lean that direction. Latin major, French masters, 3 semesters of spanish, 3 semesters of ancient greek, a little bit of german and russian. I'd love to study some old english and celtic language. I've decided though that I'm going to brush up on my ancient greek and try to do some new testament reading in the original. Wish me luck.

Word origins and development fascinate me.

very cool; at some point I'd like to do that sort of thing. actually, I'd love to be a student all my life. I look forward to taking the classes at the senior's centre up the street; great old building, very cool classes...maybe audit a linguistics class or two...are you taking the Greek at a university?

lotusloq said...

I did have 3 semesters at the university, but I was just going to pull out my books and remind myself what I learned and get a greek NT and start reading. I had some symposium classes in the summer about it and thought I would follow up with doing the actual reading.

После вселенской катастрофы Америка превратилась в выжженную пустыню. По бескрайним дорогам, кишащим бандами, с враждой поражденной войной за воду и еду, путешествует безстрашный Илай. Однажды он попадает в мрачные земли, где когда-то была цветущая Калифорния, а теперь это сущий ад, где бесчинствует тиран Карнеги.

it started a couple of weeks ago, the keyboard and touch pad stopped working, thought it must be a virus so ran scans with AVG and Avira but nothing showed, the problem seems intermittent, sometimes everything seems fine and then it all goes weired again usually starting with the curser either not responding or jumping all over the screen and sometimes disappearing altogether. I have ran C cleaner, Spy-bot and a couple of hours ago cleaned the registry with Reg-cure, apparently I had over 2000 problems, none of these made any difference. I decided to do a full recovery but when I follow the instructions and try to boot from the recovery disc it just tries to boot normally and asks for my account password which I cant enter because the keyboard ain't working.
