Talk like a Roman


A great vlog post by the esteemed Lindybeige about language in Ancient Rome – a post that has a very close connection with my Aculeo & Amunet stories1 – and also has a certain connection whit the Great Swape Debate.

  1. yes, I still remember the guy that said a Roman centurion would never use the expression “cuckold“

  1. I really enjoyed this post, it’s so interesting.
    After all who can forget the guy who blamed you for the expression “cuckold“ ?
    Maybe he would appreciate you are doing your best to not make “such mistakes” in the future. Just kidding, you know! 😀


  2. When I was in high school, my teacher said this, but i’ve removed it since now
