::raises eyebrow::

No one else bit?  If we're speaking Latin here, I believe you'd have dilemmata on your hands.

Well damn, I was hoping it was an actual plural form. Oh well.

I was equally devestated to learn that penii is not the plural of penis (it's penes if you want to be fun).

my god, johnny, how did you get into UVA and NYU without being able to pluralize latin properly.

i am sorely disappointed son

You forget that I majored in linguistics. When it comes to language, I do what I want. None of this prescriptivist bull for me.

well, excccuuuuuuuuusssseeeee me....i'm a HISTORY major, so i can say with authority that people who cannot conjugate latin correctly, more than not, meet a dismal end. hello, ceasar? the only thing he could conjugate was "es tu, brutus?" lame.

i have no idea what that word means, haha

Prescriptivist = setting out rules on how people should talk.

I prefer descriptivism: basically if the shoe fits (or at least is communicable), then who cares.

Conjugation of Latin is more important than spelling even. ;)

Caeser did cease, to be fair.

But did he caese? I think not.

No, it was just omitted from one of the posts. Wisco is tied with W&M and Ohio State at #31.
