A few translations and meanings for you: English to Latin.
Two you all should know by now:
Government: "Govern Mente" - Mind Control
Mortgage: "Mort Gage" -" Death Engagement"/"Death Grip" (enslaved till death)
These two I have been working on are not so common.
I am sure you are all aware of "common purpose" and who they are?
Common Purpose: translates to the Latin "vulgaris voluntas" 10 points to anyone who can see what two words come from this? lol.
But this is the one I have had to work hardest on.
Apocalypse: (The True Latin Translation is) aperio labis se
The rough everyday translation for apocalypse is "revelation" as in the bible and revelations. But the true translation after some work is
aperio labis se - which translates to - "Reveal Disaster Himself" - but interestingly enough the Latin word labis also means "landslip/subsidence".
Plugging these words into the translation you get the following:
aperio labis se - "Reveal Subsidence Disaster Himself" - we all know in ancient times there was massive subsidence where many lands sunk into the
oceans, we see the evidence of this where large pyramids and other structures have been found deep in the oceans.
Anyways, thought I would share this with you all.
Times are getting tough, so take of yourselves, and everyone else
Latin hmm, i took a year throughout 10th grade it was #ing borring i wish i had stayed a lil longer though; they have to do something with these
"dead languages", make them more alive i don't know, interactive, 3d whatever.
I'm not sure about these dots you're tying to connect though.
I could be wrong but lots of law terms (in the u.s system particularly) find their roots in the french system (mortgage etc). Being french and having
studied the law a little that's what i have noticed.Napoleon left his print on the other side of the atlantic i guess
In polyphonic compositions of the 14th and early 15th centuries, the contratenor was a voice part added to the basic two-part contrapuntal texture of
discant (superius) and tenor (from the Latin tenere which means to hold, since this part "held" the music's melody, while the superius descanted upon
it at a higher pitch). Though having approximately the same range as the tenor, it was generally of a much less melodic nature than either of these
other two parts. With the introduction in about 1450 of four-part writing by composers like Ockeghem and Obrecht, the contratenor split into
contratenor altus and contratenor bassus, which were respectively above and below the tenor. Later the term became obsolete: in Italy, contratenor
altus became simply altus, in France, haute-contre, and in England, countertenor. Though originally these words were used to designate a vocal part,
they are now used to describe singers of that part, whose vocal techniques may differ (see below).
In the Catholic Church during the Renaissance, St Paul's admonition "mulieres in ecclesiis taceant" ("let the women keep silence in the churches" –
I Corinthians 14:34) still prevailed, and so women were banned from singing in church services. Countertenors, though rarely described as such,
therefore found a prominent part in liturgical music, whether singing a line alone or with boy trebles or altos; (in Spain there was a long tradition
of male falsettists singing soprano lines). However, employment of countertenors never extended to early opera, the rise of which coincided with the
arrival of a fashion for castrati, who took, for example, several roles in the first performance of Monteverdi's Orfeo (1607).
(("Ombra mai fu" is the opening aria from the 1738 opera Serse by George Frideric Handel. ))((Serse (Xerxes, HWV 40) is an opera seria in three acts
by George Frideric Handel. ))
...Handel adapted the aria from the setting by Bononcini who, in turn, adapted it from the setting by Francesco Cavalli. All three composers had
produced settings of the same opera libretto by Nicolò Minato.
Originally composed to be sung by a soprano castrato (and sung in modern performances of Serse by a countertenor, contralto or a mezzo-soprano), it
has often been arranged for other voice types and instruments, including solo organ, solo piano, violin and piano, and string ensembles, often with
the full title "Largo from Xerxes", although the original tempo was larghetto.
In the opera, the aria is preceded by a short recitativo accompagnato of nine bars, setting the scene ("Frondi tenere e belle"). The aria itself is
also short; it consists of 52 bars and typically lasts about four minutes.
The instrumentation is for a string section: first and second violins, viola, and basses. The key signature is F major, the time signature is 3/4
time. The vocal range covers C4 to F5 with a tessitura from F4 to F5.
Plane tree (planted in 1680)
The title translates from the Italian as "Never was a shade". It is sung by the main character, Xerxes I of Persia, admiring the shade of a plane
Frondi tenere e belle
del mio platano amato
per voi risplenda il fato.
Tuoni, lampi, e procelle
non v'oltraggino mai la cara pace,
nè giunga a profanarvi austro rapace.
Ombra mai fu
cara ed amabile,
Tender and beautiful fronds
of my beloved plane tree,
let Fate smile upon you.
May thunder, lightning, and storms
never bother your dear peace,
nor may you by blowing winds be profaned.
A shade there never was,
of any plant,
dearer and more lovely,
or more sweet.
The first Latin effect was in that period. Latin effected the language with the merchants traveling the tribes. Some of the words taken from Latin
are; kettle,wine,cheese, butter, cheap...
The period of Early Modern English was also a period of English Renaissance, which means the development of the people. New ideas increased.
English language had grown as a result of borrowing words from French ,Latin, Greek.
English was primarily a Germanic language, but it was influenced in its development over time. Not surprisingly, we see these influences glaringly
apparent in the English we speak today.
