I know, I know. Hope springs eternal - I thought he was going to tell me that the word is in the latest edition of Langenscheidt's Universal Latin Dictionary (my copy was lifted from school, so probably is from the 1960s.)

Yes, you're right, thanks. It is the verb to mate, to have sexual intercourse. So obviously not the right word here.

I still have no idea what just happened. Is there a Cliff's Notes for this thread? It's all Latin to me.
