quotes in latin The noun Sacerdos mean “priest” in English. In the pagan religions of Rome there were male priests and female priestesses. If I wanted to say that someone was a “good priest” then the adjective for “good” (bonus, bona, bonum) would change to reflect the actual gender of the person I was talking about.

Firstly, one needs to understand that English was not originally a written language. There was no English writing until the Romans conquered England and introduced the Latin alphabet. The latin language had only 25 letters and 25 sounds, composed of 5 letters for 5 vowel sounds and 21 letters for 21 consonant sounds. The letter ‘y’ was borrowed from the Greek language and was called the “Greek y”. In English, it primarily functions as a consonant at the beginning of words and a vowel in the middle or ending of words.
It is said that the Greek language is one of the most difficult languages to learn. That is if you are not fond of reading books. Lawyers would not have trouble learning it, with the number of latin words that are used in most constitutions and most law documents.
Start learning a language – learn some basic words, phrases, grammar, pronunciation. Get used to its sound by listening to music, watching movies in your target language (with subtitles in your native language) and listening to native speakers. If you are learning a language with a non-Latin alphabet, of course start with learning its alphabet!
