Honk if you speak Latin

by Sarah
(Portland, OR)

I nearly bought a bumper sticker that said "Sona si latine loqueris" - but when I double-checked the conjugation of loqui, that particular form did not appear. I think I need to make my own. Using the imperative, should the correct phrase be "sona si latine loque?" I'd do it all caps, of course. :)



Hi Sarah,

The bumper sticker is correct: Sona si Latine loqueris.

Remember the deponent verb for to speak is loquor, loquī, locūtus sum.

The second person, singular, present, active (deponent) is loqueris.

Thanks for asking a Latin teacher!

Sincerely,

John
