    Isnt Barbour (e.g. Beaufort) more versatile and breathable than a trench?

    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. [​IMG]).

    xa xa that makes me a pierced fat girl than)))

    as it is,it has its own drawbacks-my Beaufort is quite wide in the lower part so it gets cold in wind.

    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.
