@ArmandDAngour @g_e_i @ericesheng Stay tuned for more tomorrow @ArmandDAngour @g_e_i @ericesheng I’m not sure whether I feel cool or threatened with half of Twitter evaluating my elegiacsShould I do a third thesis in Armenian?

@Vermeullarmine ‘Dał nam przykład Bonaparte,’ ect. @ellieredpath 200 infections last week on a student body of 20,000 is quite impressive, I must say. (In a negative sense...) @ArmandDAngour ’Censori saevo // compono carmina multa; Quotidie mendas // corrigit ille meas’

@ArmandDAngour ‘limabant’ would do the trick, I suppose. @ArmandDAngour I come closer each time. Nevertheless, I appreciate these Twitter classes! One day I will write metrically-correct verse @wutang_wei Klopt, ik zit namelijk mooi wel in het buitenland. Onze Wim niet. @fioempie De taal van samenzweringen is duidelijk een centum-taal, niet aan satem-taal. Altijd weer dat West-Proto-Indo-Europees @ArmandDAngour This is what classical education is all about, if I’ve read my Ausonius well @ArmandDAngour ’Discipulos autem // poliebant verba severa @ArmandDAngour Of course! ‘Discipulis peritus // praeceptor complacet ille!’ @ArmandDAngour Deus nobis haec otia fecit,’ but only, as Achilles says (freely translated) ’cum iaceam felix // funesto pulvore sparsus’ @ArmandDAngour In fact, while many of my undergraduate colleagues in Lit. Hum. appear to take the ‘high way’ on a regular basis, I do not! @ArmandDAngour ’Brigand-like robbery’ is indeed the way in which I intend to get ahead in academiaToday, I briefly thought that ‘hinabar jap’shtakelov’ might mean ‘through old-school robbery‘, which would mean Arm… https://t.co/d2i7r27Ljc @FrancMambr Let’s say the Pope writes Modern Ecclesiastic Latin, on which he is the sole authority, rather than Classical Latin @perpetualtakes Or his accent is bad! @perpetualtakes Anyone who shames someone for learning a language can get in the bin!

@arongroot @SjoerdvanHoorn Of Homerus (24), andere Homerus (24)? Of ‘verscheidene Griekse auteurs’ (48)? @Vermeullarmine @EMTVmemes Makes sense to me. We need a few Canon lawyers whose surnames happen to be Habsburg-Lotharingen or Bourbon
