GODAMNIT! I HATE THE ****ing PUN BECAUSE CAESAR IS PRONOUNCED "KAISAR"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHEN WILL THIS ENCYCLOPEDIA BECOME ACCURATE? --10:07, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
- It's actually pronounced /Ki:zə/. ~ 10:22, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
- Not really though, because we speak English, not Latin. • Spang • • 10:30, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
- What effect does that have on the IPA pronounciation? ~ 10:31, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
- Well, Caesar should be pronouced sees-her using modern Anglo-Latin pronunciation which has been used for centuries - /Ki:zə/ would be the classical roman pronunciation, which we haven't used officially for a long time. So seeing as we're speaking English, the standard pronunciation of c followed by an ae sounds like "see". Probably. • Spang • • 10:41, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
Fear the Ides of March! How can you not have "Et tu" in there someone? "Et tu, you freakin' bastard?" --188.8.131.52 23:57, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
Are we aware that "et tu" is the wrong tradition, he's supposed to have actually said "ki su, teknon?" (Greek; "you too, my child?", a quote from Menander). Or is using the wrong tradition (thanks Shakespeare!) part of the joke?
