Latin was the language of Latium, a country in central western Italy, in which the city of Rome was founded. Calling it Roman would be the equivalent of calling English Londonish. Nearly all languages are named after countries or regions; not cities, e.g. French, Korean, Spanish, Italian.
Latin is a dead language, originally from Italy. It is the ancestor of so called Latin languages, such as Italian, French and Spanish. It had a major influence on English too. Now it is used only for religious reason by Catholics. People study it also if they are interested in ancient coltures. … Here's a brief history of Latin: In very ancient times Latin was the main language spoken in central Italy, with several local variations (technically speaking pre-Roman variants of Latin are called italic languages, but that's not important). It was also spoken also in Rome When Rome begun becoming a powerful city, the Romans started exporting their language. By 300 BC Latin was spoken in all Italy. With the expansion of the Roman empire, around 1st century BC-1st century AD, Latin was exported as an administrative language in much of Europe (today it would be Spain, France, Greece, Britain and Yugoslavia) in part of the Middle east (today it would be Turkey, Israel, Tunisia and Egypt). When the Roman empire collapsed, places where Lain was very prominent developed their own languages, with a strong Latin-derived structure: Spanish, French, Portaguese... That's why people who speak Spanish sometimes are called Latin. English was very mildly influenced by Latin at first, but then it imported a lot of Latin-derived words after the French conquest. Italy was a little peculiar, as people spoke Italian but Latin remained the main written language until about 1200 AD (when Dante wrote the Divine Comedy) and sometimes later. Galileo Galilei (who lived in the 1600s) wrote mostly in Latin. Catholics kept praying mainly in Latin until the 1960s, when the Vatican decided it was time to move on and use modern languages. But some still keep Latin as a religious language. (MORE)
Amare (a first conjugation verb) is the verb most people use for "love" in the context of "I love you". Amo is the 1st person, singular, present, indicative, active. The "I" of "I love" is stated in this conjugation and you don't need ego unless you really want to stress that I love you (versus Bo…bby loving you, say). Which "you" you use depends on whether your object is singular or plural. If I love one "you" (singular), then you would need "te"- the singular accusative "you". If I love multiple "you"s then you would want "vos" (accusative plural of the nominative "tu") N.B. A good rule of thumb (at least in the beginning) is to stick the verb at the end of the clause. SINGULAR: Te amo. PLURAL: Vos amo. (MORE)
The question What? = Quid? The relative pronoun what eg what we need is a horse = Qui Qui declines depending on case and gender.
"It is what it is" in latin is: "Est quod est" - literally "is what is", you skip the pronouns because the verb forms already denote the gender and number. "Id est quod id est" - "it is what it is", not skipping the pronoun automatically puts an emphasis on it. The stress is on "it". Carefu…l with "is". "Is" is the masculine pronoun. answer found at: http://sites.google.com/site/latinaidnow/ (MORE)

The Latins were an ancient Italic people from the Latium region in central Italy, ( Latium Vetus - Old Latium). Although they lived in independent city-states, the Latins had a common language (Latin), common religious beliefs and a close sense of kinship, expressed in the myth that they were all d…escendants of Latinus, the father-in-law of Aeneas. Latinus was worshipped as Jupiter Latiaris on Mons Albanus (Monte Cavo) during an annual festival that was attended by all Latins, including Rome, one of the Latin states. The Latin cities extended common right to residence and trade to one another. Rome's territorial ambitions united the rest of the Latins against it in 341 BC, but the final victory was on Rome's side in 338 BC. Consequently, some of the Latin states were incorporated within the Roman state, and their inhabitants were given full Roman citizenship. Others became Roman allies and enjoyed certain privileges.. Gradually, with the spread of Roman power throughout Italy and Western Europe, 'Latin' ceased to be an ethnic term and became a legal category. (MORE)

The idiom "in with" isn't literally translatable into Latin. For one thing, the grammar wouldn't allow it; for another, idioms have meanings that do not follow naturally from the literal meaning of the words they employ. We need instead to find an equivalent phrase that conveys the same meaning. …One possibility is the verb uti , which literally means "to use" but has an idiomatic meaning of "to associate with; to enjoy the friendship of; to be familiar or intimate with" and takes its object in the ablative. So, for example, "He's in with your brother" could be expressed in Latin as Utitur fratre tuo, with or without a qualifying adverb such as familiariter "familiarly"), multum ("very"), or plurimum ("a lot"). In isn't translatable, but with is per. (MORE)

So, for example "I am lying on the bed" is jaceo in lecto , while "I threw it on the bed" is id jeci in lectum .) When "on" means "on the subject of", the proper translation is de (cf. Caesar's De bello gallico , "On the Gallic War"). (MORE)

Latina, although it does not directly mean Latin, but rather 'of the Latin language, people or culture'
The word for 'Latin' is a bit tricky. 'Linguam latinam narro' would be 'I speak the Latin language.' _____________________________________________________________ The use of " Narro " is inappropriate and should be replaced by " dicere " which means, "to speak". Narro is a verb meaning "to …tell, relate". A more appropriate way to say "I speak Latin" is, " latine possum dicere". T his roughly translates to "I can speak in Latin/ I am able to speak in latin" or you could say "latine dico"; but this could also be interpreted as "I am speaking latin" or "I speak latin". This would really only be appropriate if you were in fact speaking latin (present tense); in which case, you should not need to tell the other person that you are in fact speaking latin unless you enjoy talking to people in a language that they do not understand. better yet: Loquor Latine _______________________________________________________________ Simply a grammatical correction, "I can speak in Latin", or "In linguÄ latinÄ dicere possum", even "Linguam latinam dicere possum", which respectively translate to "I can speak in the latin language" and "I can speak the latin language". Possum, the verb, will always follow an infinitive in the latin language, except in the case of the enclitic syllable -ne in which, for example, possumne dicere would be at the beginning of the sentence. _______________________________________________________________ Using Latine as an adverb is fine for saying "in the Latin Language". The preposition in would not carry over into Latin. Latine dicere possum would be the most vanilla word order, though the rule mentioned in the above post is not a hard and fast rule, but more of a tendency. (MORE)
