    Someone once told me this in regard to Gregorian rhythm, is the grammar correct?

    Nihil significantur, si non com movit.

  • Hahaha! Clever - now you need to find the Latin equivalent of "doo wop doo wop" - "e-ia, e-ia, e-ia"?

    No space in "commovit."

    Agricola est vir fortis in agro eo.

    Some wag's rendition of "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing"? Har har.

    Anyway, I think it still needs work, as the verb is plural, whereas the apparent subject "nihil" is singular. And is the verb supposed to be passive? Hm.

    "Agricola est vir fortis in agro eo." - That reminds me of the award winning farmer: he was out-standing in his field.

    @chonak if you sing "it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing" without swinging it, it becomes the most ridiculous song!
