I'm a college Physics major, who's been interested in Latin and other dead ancient languages like Ancient Greek, Old English, and Sanskrit, ever since I first found out about Proto-Indo-European in high school. I guess you could say I'm a fan of historical linguistics. I feel pretty comfortable with Latin since, along with the four years of it in high school, I took a semester here at college too, and occasionally do translations in my spare time. Some day I'd like to master Ancient Greek and Old English in the same way I feel comfortable with Latin.
