I'm looking to translate several concepts into words, generally imperative verbs. Rather than spamming the forum with a different post for each, I'm combining them here. I did some work online myself in trying to find decent choices, but not having properly studied Latin, I don't trust my work. I also have no idea how to pronounce it. Even if sede is right for sit, I could pronounce it sehdeh, sayday, sehday, or saydeh, from the reading I did on pronunciation. Please provide a pronunciation guide with translations. Following, please find one or two english words per concept that might be translated, and a description of what I mean to say to do. I understand that languages are not codes for one another, and thus that I might miss an implication of chair in a Latin verb for sit, or whatever. Still, please be gentle with my attempts; I tried. Accompany: Walk with me, at my left side, in a specific formation (your shoulder aligned with my hip), maintainting position relative to me. My guess: contende Sit: Put your buttocks on the ground and leave them there. My guess: sede Stand: Stand still and square, as if at attention. Ignore anybody touching you. My guess: sta Lie Down: Put your belly on the ground, legs bent under you. My guess: cube Come: Come from where you are directly yo me, allowing me to grab you. My guess: vene Approach: From where you are, come quickly and straight toward me, then sit close enough that I can touch you without moving either foot. Go: Move directly away from me, in the direction I am facing, perpendicular to the plane of my hips and shoulders/ Keep going until instructed otherwise. About face: Stop going, turn 180* to face me, then sit and wait for further instruction. High Jump: Jump over a bar suspended above the ground without knocking it over. This needs to be distinct from Broad Jump. Broad Jump: Jump over a series of boards lying on the ground without touching any of them. This needs to be distinct from high jump. Retrieve: Go get that thing I just threw and bring it back to me. Take: Take the indicated item and hold it in your mouth until told otherwise. Give: Release the item in your mouth into my hand. Glove: Go back along the way we just came and find and bring back the glove I dropped. Find Mine: Go over to a group of objects and retrieve specifically the item that I touched, rather than those handled by strangers. Place: Go hang out in the indicated small area (e.g. on a mat); don't move from that place, but I don't care what position you choose or even if you change position while remaining there. My guess: Locus Enter: Go into an enclosed area (such as a crate, or under the table in a restaurant booth) and behave as ifor "place", except that you are free to move within the confines of the three or four walls enclosing it. If it matters, the organism being instructed is male. With a name like Softmaple Ovidius Crispinus, I figure my curly coated retriever should speak Latin.
