Exactly as you would read it.

 

(which is usually the rule for Latin words; each letter in Classical Latin retains the same phonetic pronounciation regardless of context. I was told that in my very first lesson, as part of a list of reasons why Latin was going to be such an easy-peasy language to learn. That part didn't turn out quite right though; I gave it up at about 13/14. laugh.gif).

At the risk of offending the rat, tongue/language is lingua not lengua. But who am I to lecture on arselicking?

The thread has taken a strange turn, but it's still sort of related. I'm sure the WWI trenches were full of rats.

 

And if I was feeling dark, I'd also say that a soldier's life in that war was worth about the same as its proverbial backside.

 

See, isn't tangentiality wonderful? :)

It's actually pronounced: ˈäkwə skoō təm.

Loosely: "If you can read this, you're over-educated."
