Do we have any example of it in this site, maybe with an answer?

Ergative Man! I would direct you to the Chat portion of our site: https://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/36130/conloqvivm

Here is an example of a recent exchange where I asked who wrote a particular quotation:

Sebastian: Quidam rogantes valde celeriter responsa distinguunt hamo viride.

Nickimite: Bene dictum! Est poeticum. Auctorne notus hoc scripsit?

Sebastian: Forsitan scripserit Ovidius? Scio non posse fuisse M. Valerium Martialem, verbo "mentula" conspicue absente.

I would love to chat with you too, I'm sure!

  • Sebastian (or the mysterious poet) should of course have written: hamo viridi (with a green check mark). Commented Apr 28, 2020 at 22:55

Prima quaestio mea quidem posita est in lingua Latina:

Accusativus 'Graecus' pertinetne ullo modo ad accusativum temporis?

Responsum vero in Anglica.


Yes, many!

Ben Kovitz has written several: here, here, here, here. Cerberus mentioned one of his in the other post. I wrote one too (here). I'm sure there are many more, but I don't know a systematic way to search for them.

  • If you can think of good keywords that must appear in a Latin question, you can search pretty easily. Here's what you get for cur. There's quite a bit of work in coming up with good words and filtering false positives.

  • @JoonasIlmavirta What about creating a tag for them? Way easier and probably interesting in itself.

  • The network discourages metatags as this would be, but I think we could have one if there's sufficient demand. If you make that into a meta question, we'll see what people think.
