Hi George!

When you get a chance - no rush whatsoever - can you let me know how to write "onwards and downwards" in Latin? If it makes a difference, can you show both how to say it to a group of just women and a group with mixed genders?

Many thanks! Smile

@jespah,

This is an interesting one.
Usually at this stage I write something sarcastic or caustic, but I suspect you're not going to tattoo this on your butt. So I won't.

@McTag,
It's for dieting. And my butt's getting too small for it to be visible.*

*This applies to both the butt and the proposed tat.

"onwards and downwards"

porro deorsumque

porro --> onwards
deorsum --> downwards
-que --> and

It's the same regardless of the listener's gender.
