Dear Latin Teacher,
Help! I have several questions about Latin language:
How do you say to work
How do you say to call
How do you say to sail
What does laudatory
What does the latin noun fama
What does the latin verb monstro
is to work, vocare
to call, and navigare
The English adjective laudatory
comes from the Latin root meaning to praise (laudare
). It means containing or expressing praise.
The Latin noun fama
has several wide-ranging meanings: rumor, report, fame, or reputation; public opinion, ill repute. In Vergil's Aeneid Fama, with a capital F, is personified as a huge feathered creature who walks with its feet on the ground and its head in the clouds.
The Latin verb monstrare
means to point out or to show. English derivatives include to demonstrate, demonstrative, and monster.
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
