Commercium


If I understand you correctly, then this:

"qui locĂștus est per ProphĂ©tas"

... which is usually translated as "who has spoken through the prophets" would more accurately be: "who was spoken through the prophets"? As "locutus est" is the indicative passive perfect?


-Scott



Ah, that's again a whole nother issue. Because, see, Locutus is Picard's Borg persona.


- Sasha



Don't think a tube-riddled, wire-sprouting Patrick Stewart isn't the first thing that comes to mind whenever I hear that line sung. Fear of android-spewing prophets may be one reason for my desertion of the faith.


-Scott



NB: Yes, I now know it's a deponent verb. Corrections not needed.
