Latin Expressions 4

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-03/26/content_562370.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Practice using some of these expressions (and the ones from yesterday) in sentences or short dialogues.
2. Can you think of examples of these? For example, do you know of a book or movie that starts "In medias res"?
3. Two Latin prepositions on the list are the same as in English ("in" and "in," "per" and "per"); others are different. Why do you think this is?
