    Want to write a Christmas message for my OH who loves Latin.

    Just a few short sentences. I've managed to do some already - but need help with two or three more lines.

    PM me or reply if you're willing to help
    I could help you. What do you want to say?

    Although not incorrect, unless you are trying to emphasise your ability to use Latin, you don't need to use 'ego'

    Quite right, chap. But, as you say, I wanted to emphasize the fact that I too, in addition to you, was also able to help.

    Be sure to make use of the fact that latin word order counts for nothing unless in very specific circumstances.
    for example. if you want to re-order a message so that the first letter of each word corresponds to the letters of their name
    (guess who did this, but thankfully her name was easy XD )
