LATIN

It seems like I've ended up with the letter Q multiple times. No matter, Latin is full of Q words!

quicumque / quaecumque / quodcumque, etc. = whoever, whatever (adj.)

Example from Ovid's Pyramus and Thisbe:

"...nostrum divellite corpus,
et scelerata fero consumite viscera morsu,
o quicumque sub hac habitatis rupe leones!"


...O whatever lions live at the foot of this cliff,
tear apart my body
and consume my wicked entrails in ferocious gulps!

Interesting to note:

1. nostrum corpus = literally "our body," but this is an example of the "poetic plural," whereby a plural form is used to mean a singular form. Very common in poetry.

2. et scelerata fero consumite viscera morsu is an example of a so-called "golden line," a type of dactylic hexameter following the pattern Adj1 Adj2 verb Noun1 Noun2. I've underlined the first noun-adj pair, and I've bolded the second noun-adj pair.
