IKR!? I thought it was hilarious that the Romans had a specific word for: ‘maker of tunics with long sleeves’ but they don’t have a word for ‘yes’.(Unless you count ‘certe’) Who thought that was a good idea?
Here’s something else I thought was quite funny:
Learning modern foreign languages:
Hello. How are you? Where is the train station?
Learning ancient languages:
Life is long and hard. Each day barbarians kill another member of our beloved family and pirates, with all of our grain having been stolen, have left us to starve. (Note the “graceful” sentence structure. XD)
The Romans were quite cheerful, weren’t they? XD
