"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

Hey! I'm teaching myself Latin with the book, Teach Yourself Beginner's Latin. Of course, it's just beginner's latin, but I wouldn't know what Latin really is. I really hope it didn't cut away any part that might help me learn Latin better. It's really inconsistent, however logical. The language is. The ending -ae for feminine nouns apparently mean both plural and the genitive case. In case you don't know, genitive means "of [something]." So we have silva, which means "the wood." To say silvae means to say either "the woods" or "of the wood." I guess you'd have to figure out from the context of the sentence the meaning of silvae.

If I succeed in learning Latin, I'm going to compose a poem!!! Wish me luck.
