I know, but I can't think of an English word that encompasses both meanings.
Oh well, I would have been fine with "yokes", the basic meaning of iuga.
I didn't actually think finding an English word that fits all meanings is necessarily necessary. (if I hadn't mentioned the montes, you would have said "yoke", too)
Hence the three dots in my post, BTW.
Well, the name would have been the same in English anyway.
Infra rugio, supra scintillo. In me homo nasci potest. Quid sum?
Are you love? (amor)
I'll clarify it a little:
In terra rugio, in caelo scintillo. In me homo nasci potest. Quid sum?
Ooh. You're a lion (leo).
ego sum nihil aliud nisi omnium divinarum humanarumque rerum cum benevolentia et caritate consensio; me quidem excepta sapientia nihil melius homini est a dis immortalibus datum.
That's closely paraphrased from Cicero, isn't it?
Yes, it is
Meo in margine factus est olim, ut fabula fert, quasi iactus quidam maximi momenti. Quid est mihi nomen?
Are you the river Rubicon?
I am indeed!
vox mea "vox populi" est – Germani talia dicunt ...
meque putant stolidam, meque libenter edunt
Quid sis prorsus nescio.
