ACCUSATION (Lat. accusatio, accusare, to challenge to a causa, a suit or trial at law)
This has just made me realize the etymological relationship of accusare to causa.

Oh, wow.
 
Yeah, I'm just thick-skulled like that.

Another etymological l'esprit de l'escalier of mine was how the Sanskrit euphemism for a big male package (maha lingga) was where the Filipino word for nobility came from (maharlika). And now the president is trying to rename the country into that.

?
Lol.

So.
 
And another is how the Yahweh, Jove, and Yawa (devil in Filipino) are so similar. But this is more likely to be coincidental...

Interesting. Yeah, does seem to far-fetched to be cognate, but you know, maybe monotheists are more inclined to name their deities simply so arising the coincidence.

P.S. I just now I searched my username Google and it turns out that the Branch is a podcast by Hadassah about bridging the differences between Jews and Arabs. I personally named myself this because of the beauty of Queen Esther's original name (m. compassion in Hebrew) and 'branch' for the Behold the Branch part in the Isaiah. Thus, branch of compassion.

Lol, that looks like an insult.

I knew what Hadassah meant, but not about that podcast. Guess it's Iove at work?

צחקתי.

Honestly, you're brilliant. You're the first on the site to use that. And, the joke is already set up for you...but it was so good.
 
Some here are confined to the sphere of the Classical tradition which is normal considering this to be a Latin discussion forum. But the richness of the Abrahamic tradition is near unparalleled, and what a shame for it to be underappreciated in the liberal arts.

Amen.

(Yes, Abrahamic tie-in.)
 
I think the more appropriate substitute here for Amen is Selah. Okay, let's get back on topic so as to not make the others feel awkward. Hahaha!
