Latin Phrase: Worm Speaks

by Emily

Dear Latin Teacher,

How do I say in Latin the phrase "the worm speaks"?

Thank-you in advance,


Dear Emily,

I suppose it's none of a Latin teacher's business how the phrase will be used. But who has wronged you that you need to say this? Are you settling a score? Getting the last word?

The worm speaks in Latin would be vermis loquitur.

Vermis means either worm or maggot. Vermin is one English derivative. For the verb to speak (loquor, loqui, locutus sum) see this English vocabulary lesson.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher!
