Latin Translation: Secrets Kill

by Kat
(Summerville)

Dear Latin Teacher,


How would one say "Secrets can kill," in a Latin translation?

Thanks, Kat


Dear Kat,

See a previous post about secrets in Latin.

The phrase secrets can kill might be rendered into Latin thus: commissa fatalia possunt. Literally it means secrets (i.e. words entrusted to another) can be fatal.

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

Sincerely,

John
