Common latin phrases in Latino sine Flexione: A-B

Saturday, December 20, 2008

I'm starting to get a better idea of how to convert common proverbs into Latino sine flexione as I continue to transcribe Peano's book "100 Exemplo de Interlingua" so I'm going to have a go at a number of common Latin phrases. It also helps me fill the dictionary with extra terms that are still lacking. Here are a few from Wikipedia's list of Latin phrases from A to B:
