Homines in terra–piscator, pastor, arator–hos viderunt qui per aera volare poterant et hos esse deos crediderunt. Et iam insulae Graeciae relictae sunt cum puer gaudere coepit et patrem ducem reliquit. Desideravit volare altius in caelo et audacia eum ab itinere patris duxit. Sol ceram mollit et pennae liberatae sunt. Puer nudis bracchiis aera percussit.

Daedalus in insula Creta longum exsilium egit. Tactus loci natalis amore, diu et magnopere insulam reliquere desiderabat, sed mari clausus erat. “Minos, rex Cretae,” inquit, “terras et undas tenet, at caelum certe est apertum. Caelo ibimus. Quamquam omnia Minos possidet, tamen non aera possidet.”

Translating Latin to KÄ“len

As a summer project I decided to translate the interim readings from my Latin textbook into KÄ“len (and Sodemadu*). Here is the first reading. This is the first of several posts. I’ll post one every Monday and Thursday until I run out. Feel free to ask questions about the translation. That said, it is not as exact a translation as my Latin professor would expect. 😉

I intended to do more than the first interim reading, but time got away from me. I still plan on doing more, but Latin class starts up again on the 24th, so I doubt it will happen before Christmas.

I ended up not doing Sodemadu* as that language just doesn’t have the vocabulary. With KÄ“len, the vocabulary either already existed, or was easy to derive from the existing public corpus, or was drawn from my private notes full of not-ready-for-prime-time vocabulary items.

*was sodna-lɛni
