VENITE! VENITE! ESTOTE PARTICIPES CONVENTUS KENTUKIANI LINGUAS
EXTERNAS PROFITENTIUM; ET LOQUIMINI LATINE! - Anno Domini bis
millesimo primo Lexintoniae, in civitate Kentukia, quinquagesimus
quartus Conventus Linguas Externas Profitentium, qui annua vice
celebratur, a die mensis Aprilis undevicesimo usque ad vicesimum
primum agitabitur. Quo in conventu mos iam inveteratus est ut quaedam
sessiones litteris Latinis Graecisque dicantur: at hisce sessionibus
anno bis millesimo primo addetur nova quaedam, cuius participes de
quibuslibet auctoribus argumentisve sint orationes habituri, sed nulla
lingua nisi LATINA. Quam sessionem qui participare voluerit, orationis
summarium sive epitomen Latine scriptam (quae duabus summum paginis
contineatur) ad diem mensis Novembris 15, anni 2000, cursu aut publico
aut electronico aut per telesimulatrum mittat ad Iacobum Franciscum
professorem. Quaesumus ut omnes oratores orationum suarum exemplaria
chartacea secum afferant, quo facilius qui audiant loquela Latina
minus assuefacti, verba tamen loquentium capiant. Qui orationes in
sessionibus habebunt, eos oportebit et pretium adeundi solvere et,
quod speramus, conventum participare totum.
		
Acceptance of your paper for presentation implies a commitment to
