Could someone please translate 'learner of languages' into Latin for me?
Thank you so much!!
Hmm. I think we need to divide the idea into "one who has learned" languages on the one hand, and "one who is trying to learn" languages on the other.
The former might be vir doctus (or for a female femina docta) in linguis, or peritus linguarum, or peritus ad disciplinam linguisticarum.
The latter might be discipulus (or for a female discipula) in linguis, or dicsipulus linguarum.
The very tempting philologus does not mean "philologist" but rather "scholar" in a more general sense.
Anyone else have ideas?
