Does someone on my flist know Latin?  As in, can read and pronounce it correctly?  I took Latin in grade 10 but that was...ahem...23 years ago and apparently I've blocked or, probably more likely, forgotten every frickin' thing!  And of course one of the podfics I have to do has a shit load of Latin at the beginning and I can't remember a damn thing!

If it was simply a case of doing a podfic for a friend as a favor I'd just say forget it but it's for someone that won my services in the help_haiti  auction so I'm kind of stuck doing it.  And I'm pretty sure that I'm screwing up my pronunciations...

For the love of God...

PLEASE HELP!!!

Sorry I can't help with Latin. It it was French I could

At least I can say that I remember French from school...okay granted that might be because I took six years of it. :)

How much of it do you remember ?

Not a lot, I'd probably be able to get directions and have very basic conversations. Those six years ended in grade 9 and that was 86/87 so it's been few years. Mind you, occasionally my father-in-law will say something in french around his second ex-wife (she can't speak a word of it) just to annoy her and I know what he's saying so who knows.

If you used it more, it would all come back to you

My son took 4 years of compulsory latin in school... I can ask him about correct pronunciation...only, and only if, it doesn't give away the J2 slash...LOL!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Nope no slash, it's actually a modified version of the "Novena ad Sacrum Cor", all religious with no slashy goodness whatsoever. ;)

I'll pm you what I have, including the translation into English....

Well, my grade 10 Latin was only 19 years ago, so I can give it a shot. :) But be warned that I'm going out of town, so I'm not sure how quickly I can respond.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

No worries about it taking a while, whenever you can get it to me would be great.

Hey, I don't know latin at all. Just wondered how you are doing and if you are still writing? I have enjoyed reading your stories and hope you are still working on you fics!
