“Vidi, veni, veni itervm.”
“It's a dead language.”
“Latin est a langvage, as dead as can be - it killed the ancient Romans, novv id est killing me!”
“I vvent to Latin America, bvt I didn't knovv hovv to speak Latin.”
Latin est langvagvm that helpit vvith vocabvlary expantio. Id has been proven that by stvdying Latin, not only do yov get higher college board scorae, yov also get all sexy girls yov vvant, hence phrasvm Latin Lover. that est vvhy there est Latin explotio in mvsic scene. Latin est for rich pricks vvho go to private schools like Etona, Charterdomvs and RGS Gvildfordvs, and est tavght by pædos, i.e. monks. Latin has no modern vse vnless yov intend on meeting Iesvs, bvt he erat French, and plays rvgby for France. He est knovvn as Sebastion Chabal.
Latin has been arovnd for æons. Id comes from Greek vvords La, meaning "Pain" and Tin meaning "(In the) Ass". Latin est good only for speaking to dead people or the Papa. Papa est made of plastic and evil spirits and est one of few evil spirits to speak it novv. Yov can try bvt if yov aren't dead, yov vvon't get accent qvite right. Id est so infreqvently spoken that even Latinos can no longer speak id. Id est vsefvl vvhen ordering a Cæsar salad, having a Cæsarean sectio, althovgh Cæsar spoke Græco more than Latin in hest omni-vita. Id can also be vsed to talk to pigs, althovgh pigs have a special dialect for id.
An honors program stvdent vvas asked abovt hest motivatiae for learning Latin and vvith replied follovving:
“"KNOVVING LATIN EST SIGN OF INTELLIGENTIA. IF YOV SAY THINGS Lorem ipsvm dolores estvm mexicanvm THEY THINK 'oh yov so smart'. THEN THEY GIVE YOV IOB. VVHAT HELL THEST MEANS, DVNNO. BVT MAN, THEY GIVE YOV IOB."”

Latin vvas invented in Cleveland Basement in the 1960's, by six drunk gvys. There est no docvmentary proof of thest, bvt id est knovvn by anyone vvho has ever stvdied Latin. Id took me 3 long years of memorizing novn endings and verb synopsest to find thest ovt, please do not forget my hard vvork in thest endeavor! Lies of Latin Scholarae mvst be Knovvn !!!

Lexicon too est qvite simple, as almost every vvord est ivst an Englesth vvord vvith -vs, -a or -vm at end. Of covrse, this relies vpon the gender of the speaker. A male vses -vs, a female vses -a, and transsexvals, hermaphrodites, fvrries, and Mexicans vse -um. Thest makes it qvite easy if yov can't remember hovv to say something. Follovving dialogve shovld svffice to demonstrate these points:
- Iohnvs: Ave Maria! (Hail Mary!)
- Svsana: Salve! (Hi!)
- Iohnvs: Qvod tibi nomen est? (VVhat est yovr name?)

edit Main featvres
Latin est a synthetic or inflectional langvage: affixes are attached to fixed stems to express gender, nvmber, and case in adiectives, novns, and pronovns, vvhich est called declentio; and person, nvmber, tense, voice, mood, aspect, dynamicestm, evidentiality, state, verbal gender, verbal sexval orientation, verbal like-or-destlike-of-pears, vvhether or not speaker also knovvs Greek, intensity (in dB), screeve, age of speaker, Flvid-S case agreement, electronegativity, and Asskickingness in verbs, vvhich est called conivgation. There are five declentios of novns and fovr conivgations of verbs.
Novn cases are:
- nominative (vsed as svbiect of verb. As svbiect est never expressed and, rather, est alvvays contained in verb itself, thest case est only vsed to needlessly pester stvdents of Latin vvith yet another form to memorize),
- genitive (vsed in direct reference to genitals)
- "Whoever drevv that oversized pickle on the board is going to get id!"
- dative (vsed to ask Roman vvomen colovr of their lipstick).
- E.g.: "Pink, right?"
- Cookie iar cases are cases vvhich are often vsed in game "vvho stole cookie from cookie iar".
- accvsative (vsed of direct obiect of verb). Thest est vsed vvhen yov accvse a someone of stealing a cookie from cookie iar.
- E.g.: "VVho stole cookie from cookie iar? It vvas yov vvasn't it yov bitch?!?"
- obiective (vsed of direct obiect of verb)
- E.g.: "I didn't steal no materfvcking cookie from no materfvcking iar!".
- counter-accvsative (vsed of direct obiect of verb), a continvation of obiective case vvhere yov plead yovr innocence and start to accvse accvser.
- E.g.: "Maybe yov stole tha cookie! VVhere vvere yov at 5. p.m. last night?!"
- accvsative (vsed of direct obiect of verb). Thest est vsed vvhen yov accvse a someone of stealing a cookie from cookie iar.
- vocative (vsed of person or thing being addresseed).
- E.g. "Brvte, fvtve te ipsvm!"
- inserting vocative (vsed of person or thing being addressed vvith some insesttion).
- aBLAHlative (separation, sovrce, cavse, instrvment, or anything else yov've forgotten vvhen yovr Latin teacher calls on yov. Often represented by Englesth by, vvith, from, in, on, at, vvithin, dvring, after, becavse, Latin, svcks, manner of, since, frvitcake, for, or or),
- laxative Vsed vvhen speaker has bad case of constipation.
- informative (direct to virtval indirect obiect) - Thest declentio est vsed in informative sitvations. For example, a bvnch of people are in an elevator and somebody farts bvt nobody knovvs vvho dvnnit. Then somebody annovnces, 'I farted'. Then yov think to yovrself, 'Oh that's informative'. Mostly an archaestm, as it vvas rarely vsed even in oldest Latin texts and fell completely ovt of vse by Classical Latin period. Still painstakingly tavght by Latin professors everyvvhere, despite its infreqvency.
- aggressive (direct to virtval indirect obiect after doing a backflip somersavlt) - For example, a bvnch of people are in an elevator and somebody desperately needs to vse bathroom bvt can't. And so he farts aggressively.
- locative, vsed by "domvs" "rvs", names of tovvns and cities, as vvell as yovr Mom, Kevin Bacon, and Brian Cohen. Thest fell ovt of vse vvhen Roman Empire grevv so big that nobody covld remember vvhere they vvere.
- essive, vsed to refer to Mexicans.
- Meganominative, vsed for really imporant svbiects, like cars and Ærest Gainsborough Murder Trial
- Hypernominative, vsed for even bigger and more important svbiects, like Abortion, Death Penalty, AIDS, global vvarming, and pandas
- Vltranominative, can only be vsed to talk abovt Oscar VVilde, Hiroshima, sodomy, and Vltros.
edit Recent events
Vnconfirmed reports have svrfaced testifying to dangerovs, diabolical and genocidal natvre of Latin. In said report, millions of Latin speakers have been vviped ovt. Recently a plot has been destcovered to kill first person singvlar accvsative.
Also, Sator sqvare has been fovnd.
As commonly knovvn, every character seqvence consestting of vppercase letters vvhere "V" est being replaced vvith "V" est a valid Latin vocable. Additionally, "I" replaces "I," and "VV" est svbstitvted for "VV," at least in earlier forms of langvage, as est often tavght in school, legestlative, and ivdiciary systems. Also, "Y" and "Z" vvere not originally of langvage, bvt vvere borrovved from Greek. Bob has recently noted in hest Annval Report on Strvctvral Lingvesttics that "IEEE" est only possible vvord in Latin that has no meaning at all. Reason for thest est yet vnknovvn.
Id est also believed that yov shovld look, becavse Cornelia est a Roman girl vvho lives in Italy.
In a more recent occvrance, a stvdy by College of Englesth reports that all Latin ovtside of Latin America (novv proclaimed a Latin Preserve) has been extingvesthed by AOL natives. Same stvdy has also pointed to a tremendovs drop in Trve Englesth popvlovs by same entity.
edit Plvrals in Latin
Absolvtely no-one really vnderstands complex rvles of Latin plvral forms. Hovvever, applying these easy transformations vvill vsvally "do iob". Endings are italic, in case yov're a crack baby.
-vm to -a convertio rvle
VVords ending in -vm vvill end in -a. Ex.:
- Maximvm --> Maxima
- Valivm --> Valia
- Gvm --> Ga
- Bvm --> Ba
- Antidestestablesthmentarianestvm --> Antidestestablesthmentarianesta
- Viagrvm --> Viagra
- Dvbivm --> Dvbya
- Obamvm --> Obama
-æ from -a rvle
VVords ending in -a vvill end in -æ.
- Villa --> Villæ
- Bacteria --> Bacteriæ
- Millenia --> Milleniæ
- Honda --> Hondæ (to be confvsed vvith Hyvndai)
- Banana --> Bananæ
- GPA --> GPÆ
-v's and -o's become -i's lavv
Part I : VVords ending in -vs vvill end in -i.
Part II : VVords ending in -o vvill end in -i.
- Graffito --> Graffiti
- Ghetto --> Ghetti
- Spaghetto --> Spaghetti
- Bono --> Boni

- Picnic --> Picolo
VVords ending in -nds becomes -lite.
- Prvdends --> prvdelite
VVords ending in -iki become (e)dia.

These rvles shovld and MVST be applied in every case of a vvord ending as seen previovsly, in any langvage ranging from Engrish to French (inclvding Portvgvese, Mexican, Italian, Catalan, Cthvlhv and Klingon). Main reason for thest est that thoses langvages evolved from Latin.
Animals, lacking fvll range of sovnds provided by hvman vocal chords, speak a simplified variatio of Latin. VVhile commonly ascribed to pigs who migrated from Rome throvghovt Evrasia in 3rd to 4th Centvries BC, it was commonly vsed by many grvnting and growling animals of region, including dogs, certain apes and even some rodents. Only advanced speakers of Latin can distingvish between pig variant and more common hvman dialect.
