I'd be sorely disappointed if no one has ever mentioned this before, but "Morsus Mihi" does not exactly mean, "Bite Me!".

"Mordeo" means, "I bite", and "morsum" is the fourth principle part of "mordeo" and means "having been bitten". "Morsus" is a noun form derived from the afore mentioned fourth principle and means "a bite" as in a bite or piece of food, or a morsel. Ego is the first person pronoun and its dative case is "mihi" which means "to me" where the verb "give" is often inferred. When the two terms are put together, "Morsus Mihi" it actually means "food give to me"; however "morsus" in the nominative doesn't make much sense. It is a fourth declension noun, so "morsus" could be in the plural accusative case and as such be the object of the sentence; thus "Morsus Mihi" means "give morsels to me", a beggar's phrase. For those who want to continue to pretend that "Morsus Mihi" means, "Bite Me!", "Mordete Me!"

What is this. A well thought out statement using facts and logic? HOW DARE YOU! Never bring this filth into this forum again. Its people like you that give CAOD a bad name with you facts and ideas. What are you doing? Ensuring that people can have well thought out debates about subjects and theories in an open forum? FOOL! We will have none of this! I will report you to your superiors and make sure to petition this statement in as many nonsensicle and round about ways as I can and wait for the GMs to tell me "Our logs show nothing!" Because, damn it, that is what I pay for!!!

Feeling a bit pedantic today were we? :) I can't believe I logged on to CAOD and read something rational... did someone just divide by zero?

I enjoyed reading this because I have an interest in languages, words and their use. Unfortunately I did never get to study Latin, so while reading the original post, I found my mind drifting inexorably towards a scene from Monty Pythons, Life of Brian.

Within RAWR, this is well-known and has been discussed over and over...


To say no one has ever mentioned it here, let alone elsewhere overstates things a bit, I think.
