    Greetings,
    Tonight I would like the word Ancilla to be translated into English if possible. Would it be Slave (femeninum)?. It appeared on page17 of the book Familia Romana and I am not too sure if my translation is correct and so I wanted to double check,
    Thank you,
    J.M

    Yes, in classical Latin, ancilla is the word for a female servant or slave.

    Greetings,
    Was it just my device or did Latin D stop working for a few mins?
    Thank you for your replies,

    I don't know about your device but LatinD does stop working at times. I've observed this at least twice in the short time I've been a member, and it seems to last more than a few minutes, so I just give up and come back the next day. When this has happened to me, though, there's been a pretty obvious server error message. Except for the day when I could not log in.
