    Any one know latin?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by rainshine, Nov 15, 2011.

    Reading old literature as I have been doing lately, I keep coming across latin quotes and phrases that I can't translate and it is infuriating. heres an example.

    Nunc et campus et areae
    lenesque sub noctem sussuri
    composita repantur hora
    . . .

    nunc et latentis proditor intumo
    gratus puellae risus ab angluo
    pignusque dereptur lacertis
    aut digito male pertinaci
    . . .

    I googled it and found this translation:

    Now haunt the malls and the stadium.

    When little whispers stir in starlight,

    make very sure you arrange to be there,



    where -- who's in hiding? -- giveaway laughter from

    the dark, a girl's laugh, muffled... lovely...

    her bracelet tussled for in fun, or

    ring from a teasingly tightened finger.

    When you go to Google click on "More" at the top. Then select "Translate"... it's quite a useful little tool :)
