And is weasily distinguished from a Stoat.

Of course it is easily distinguished because a stoat is stotally different.

Ah... the B-Plot of the Latin Course. The A-Plot is that stuff with the Parrots... but the B-Plot? Weasels.

Like in the TV: Mustela sum!

Curiosity question: Did the Romans really have weasels to catch mice/rats?

Is this a Latin pickup line?

I keep flashing back to Frank Zappa's 1970 'Weasels Ripped My Flesh' album...

Charlie Bailygates speaks Latin!

Pop!! Where have you been?

Pronunciation is terrible.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SnarlsBarky

Seriously? You felt that you had to go to all the trouble of coming to the discussion forum just to criticise the speaker's pronunciation? The speaker, who, I might add, is volunteering his time and talent to help you learn another language? And anyway, ancient Latin is not spoken conversationally so it's not like you're going to drop into a café in Rome, order coffee and get, say, a cup of weasel.

I understand that you support a volunteer. But also from volunteers we need a pronunciation that enables the student to understand what is said. Like from the volunteer in the fire brigade we expect that he tries to extinguish the fire like a professional. I volunteer.

I noticed that in some of the lesser common languages on Duolingo, the sound isn't great. But its better than no sound at all! I just wish they would eventually add in the words in Latin that they havent voice recorded. This is no longer advertised as being in beta but half the words still aren't said at all.
