Use of Latin

     I don't speak Latin. I kind of wish I did- it sounds cool, and one of my literary idols, Terry Pratchett has a lot of fun with his Latin and Pseudo-Latin jokes

     So I go to google translate and fake it, attempting to sound cool. I mean no offense to any Latin scholars, and certainly would prefer not to find any hordes of undead  Roman Centurions (!)  Marching in Formation outside my front door looking for some linguistic payback for butchering their talk

     If I offend, it's not meant so, and if you can correct, I would love to see where I'm going wrong.

     Maybe I can learn a little late-life Latin after all!
