So term has begun. We talked about various rulers and would-be rulers of England and decided that Isabella would not be our next-best friend (we always decide this when discussing Isabella). I'm still entertained by a local news report tangling weapons with fish and claiming that Richard was killed by a halibut - alas, the student who heard this doesn't remember which station.

All the rest of the session was language. There was some surprise when my pronunciation of 'bade' turned out to be the same as the dictionary's, for the class was agreed on quite a different pronunciation. And word of the day was 'corps.' We looked at the Latin and, I'm afraid, returned to jokes about dead bodies and parking. That was our lot for the day...
