Sometimes I poke around on the web and find something really useful. Yesterday it was a list of Latin phrases, with translations courtesy of Wikipedia. The bad side of this info is that once again my ignorance is revealed….

Then you find a phrase like sesquipedalia verba (words a foot and a half long) and you start wondering how you can work it into a conversation.
