    Oh, brings back memories of reciting those endings-which I can still do to this day! (Nearly 50 years ago) ;) Just no idea of the meanings of the verbs! :oops:

    I thank you
    I am rarely ordered to construe nowadays
    And the fear of a rap cross the knuckles with a ruler has diminished with the passage of time so I haven't tried to do so for at least 20 years.

    There should be a symbol for "reluctant like".

    That reminds me of a story (no doubt apochryphal) of a race horse owner who renamed one of his horses which had turned out to be a bit of a donkey Norfolk and chance. Sadly, the name wasn't approved by the authorities.

    Think yourselves lucky that you were considered good enough to be able to cope with Latin or Greek.

    We didn't learn Latin when I was at school. Certainly not at my state school, anyway.
