Lena BS: some interesting Etamology (48) RE: BS: some interesting Etamology 11 Oct 00


My mother used to sing me a song about the daughter of the Longobard King Alboino and her nice husband,who had this kind thought for his wife and his father in law:,br> "Drink,Rosamund,drink
in your daddy's empty skull...
" True historical episode:Rosamund was given a cup made of her father's skull.Never mind barbarians...And yes,I've always been taught that barbarian comes from the greek.Greek were famous for being incredibly ethnocentric...everyone not talking their language was inferior and his language was meant to be inarticulate muttering.As for Dan's latin teacher...latin language is dead.Nobody talks it,apart from poor central-european students at high school...how could it be her native language?!
