Outlander and Latin

For Outlander fans: I learned that the very popular character Lord John Grey (he has his own spin-off series of novels!) swears in Latin. Thanks to DL, I now know what he means when he says "Stercus!" . I never thought that would be useful, but you never know - thanks, Duo!

I'm glad stercus was of use to you. But thanks to complaints, it has been removed from the course. Hopefully, you can find some other way to spread it around.


My boyfriend uses the euphemism "cave canem" when there is "stercus" on the sidewalk.


I would like Latin in spanish- Me gustaría Latín en español.


also handy in Brother Cadfael and Sister Fidemla books and other european historical mysteries.
