Another Possible Correction
Posted By: FŽanor <feanor@milfordcable.net>Date: 2/24/08 6:08 a.m.

In Response To: Bestiarum Latin names translated (FŽanor)


: Flood [Gravemind] - Inferi Sententia (The dead -- way of thinking)

: Bungie's guilty of shoddy linguistics on this one. It doesn't make sense to
: me, anyway -- two nouns in the nominative case. The literal English
: translation seems to make sense, but that's incidental. The Latin doesn't.
: The proper Latin to express what the English seems to want to would be
: 'Inferorum Sententia' (The dead's way of thinking).

Well, it seems that 'Sententia' is also the Present Active Imperative of a scarcely used verb. Cassell's dropped the ball, it seems. So, taking up that one, this could be translated as: 'The dead condemn you!' Not so germane as something involving sentience (as opposed to *sentence*) -- but not bad. I'm still up in the air about this one.
