<Rant Alert> “with bonus payments for including untranslated Latin.” Latin? More like French. Why write in the English language if you’re going to throw in random French words? Latin makes sense; Latin is the mother language, a dead language with less possible associations in the reader’s mind contrary to what you’re trying to convey. French is just French. I’m sure it’s very beautiful, but there are thousands of languages out there and you have no more excuse for switching to French than to Tagalog or Russian. <grumble grumble> <link>
