Attending a Deathday Party
Are there any other words for the color 'black' in Latin besides the word 'niger'? That is all I could come up with and would prefer a different word. Also, a good word for the noun 'fire' would be helpful as well.
I wouldn't mind using Greek, but I'm not sure of the definition of the only Greek word I was able to find, 'mavros.'
Thanks for your help!!
EDIT: Thank you so much, MaiaMadness!! I think I have my spell now!
Sorry for not replying before.
Snape's Talon, to devour is devoro or consumo. Funny how these words are so much like English...
Gmariam, black is nero, as well as niger (I do see why you don't want to use the word, but quite frankly, it just means black, and it's sad that some 200 years of wrong usage should blacken its name... so to speak... Latin has been around for much longer). In Greek, it is not mavros, but mauros, should you rather wish to use that.
Fire is ignis. A very large fire is incendium, but that is already used. If you want to put a dark feeling over it all, and the fire in question is meant to be large and threatening, infernus might also work.
Good luck with your writings!
The Half Blood Prince
Can anyone translate the following [titles]:
Thank you in advance.
How could I not help a fellow Gryff?
Just a note: titling things in other languages is a risky thing...there was a discussion about it somewhere on the forums once...
In Restraint = In Frenum
On Morals = In Mores
And I don't know what "astrain" is, so I can't help you there. Sorry about that.
Can anyone help me in translating a few things? I'd like :
Blood Mark - these are followers to a Dark Lord
I have the Cruor Gutta for this, but I honestly have no idea if it's right..
Green Dragon - it's a name of a pub (from the New Year's Challenge)
I think that's all for now.
Thanks in advance!
Macula Cruor, or Insigne Cruor.

I will check on Cruor Gutta and edit this post.
Gutta is a different sort of mark, like a stain, blood is cruor literally, and sanguis is if you mean bloodlines, and etc....
Macula is a mark similar to gutta. Signum is a sign or a warning, like a symptom. Isigne is the best description, I think, of what you are going for. It's like a token, isignia, etc.... I think Sanguis and Isigne are the best fit, by what I take from your post.
Thanks so much SiriuslyMental and Aurora! You both were a lot of help!

I'd like the Latin translation of "Dreams" as in the noun.
Thanks in advance
