Brought to you by the letter C

Here are five Latin words starting with C, for the enjoyment of my year 8 class:

catillo: a plate licker

concursator: one who runs hither and thither

corpulentus: corpulent, fleshy, fat

crapulentus: very much intoxicated

crispulus: curled, having curled hair, crisped, crimped

Definitions from A Latin Dictionary, Lewis and Short

just cos i left a comment for the last letter... here i go.

because i am very much intoxicated, i am running hither and thither, looking for a plate to lick! my hair is going curly, and my body is growing fat!

maybe i should stop drinking...
