I know that many users of this Forum do not live in the US, and I apologize in advance for what may seem a very parochial thread. But I have some excuse; it is a sad time for us here (sadder this year than in many others, but that for other reasons). It is every year, in the Fall, that the Game comes to an end. The snow will lie on the fields, and unless we finally decide to move WAY south, it will be March or later before the sun shines on the grass, and we smell the leather again. But this year, maybe, we can make the winter less empty. I propose that we collectively create something that the world has needed for a very long time: a set of terms, in Latin, for use in the game that Cato here calls (in the ablative) fosse basso, that Henry Beard calls sedipila (nominative), and that I know as basis-pila(also nominative). This tongue of ours should at last include a nomenclature for the Game. Heck, we should at least should be able to agree on what to call it! In a post immediately following this one, I will start a sort of glossary; I will begin with one term (Catuli) that has been used here already (in the Latin-Only Section), and on which we seem to have a tacet consensus, and two others (Piratae and clava) that seem to me pretty obvious. Making into the glossary should not make a term immune from criticism or change. But I hope we can spend most of the available time chewing over various options for terms that are not yet there, as we have done with many another English-to-Latin translation over time, often in much less noble causes. As we reach consensus on terms, I will edit the glossary post to include them. I know that there are a few other terms in Beard, and probably elsewhere, and these will need to be brought into the discussion at the appropriate time, just as we would material from Cicero, or the Vulgate in one of our more ordinary discussions. In a third post, the first after the glossary, I will try to start things rolling by proposing a few further terms for discussion. Sancte Hieronyme, ora pro nobis!
