Latin ant dialect

Fun fact:

The reason pupa and larva's plural form has an ae ending instead of a is because in Latin for some nouns if it is doing the adjective you have the ending as a for singular and ae for plural

e.g. Puella and Puellae (Girl and Girls nominative) there is a lot of different ways you say things depending on the spot they have in the sentence. The same word in accusative is puellam and puellas.

Here's how nominative and accusative works:

[Puella (nominative)] vocat [Puellam (accusative

The girl calls the girl

Nominative is the noun doing the thing and the accusative is the thing being addressed

I still need to learn the proper pronunciation of Latin/Greek names.

Cs are hard, as in cat, never like in parcel
Gs are hard like grape not like regiment
Ae is pronounced like eye
R is always rolled
J (written as I in non-anglicized latin) is pronounced y as in yarn
V is pronounced as W like in water
double vowels are pronounced (tuus is pronounced like "to us")

I should remember more considering Im in latin XD Hs are also tricky, Id google how to pronounce those.
