I am not a Latin scholar, only
a dictionary hacker. While I try to reply to all messages and
do the best I can, do not expect much in the way of translations
from me, nor anything that I (and you) cannot get from the program.
I try to answer promptly. If
you do not get an answer, please check the return address on
your message. I seem to get an unusual number of messages in
which the return is not set properly and the answer bounces back
with "No Such Address."
