Guess the language!!

Recommended Posts

Yes and no, what Latin is it though??

Without sounding like I'm boasting, I used to be able to read this type of Latin, a little, but now it's gone with the wind. I must take it up again.

EDIT: once guessed correctly I'll give the website from where the above quote comes from. Now that will be a lot of _____ Latin.

I'll be giving away the answer the language tomorrow (Sunday 10th) because it seems to have gone dry and I'm sure people want to be moving on.

Well, I'm going to admit straight away that I used Wikipedia. >_>

I'm going to guess Hisperic (Hiberno) Latin. Just because it's an interesting name, and I has a hunch. :P

Answer day:

inquit, "O rex, Maurum bubulcum tuum esse veri-

dicum dicis, in tantum ut nunquam mentiatur; sed si

velles unam de tuis civitatibus ponere infra actionem,

ego a contra caput meum in eadem finatione ponerem

amputandum, si perderem, quin Maurum quem tuum

laudas in tua presentia et audientia facerem mentiri."

Medieval Latin.

Taken from the bottom link (Latin Stories > 1. De Mauro bubulco) from this Wiki
