Arguar - first person singular future indicative passive of 'arguo': show, prove, demonstrate etc. Hi. Wonder if anyone can help me out here. Writing an essay for publication (part of a much larger postgrad level thesis I'm working on); subject 'The Methodology of Science'. Ever heard that famous little (and very sexist!) epigram usually attributed to Kipling? :- "A woman is only a woman [!!] - but a good cigar is a smoke." My little witty saw which parodies this - to point up something I am saying about why, since the earliest days even of the first philosopher-scientists, in true science - as opposed to mere opinion or conjecture - in this case, merely proposing something is not enough. My little witty (I hope!) saw, which parodies the supposed Kipling one: "A theorem is only a theorem - but a good 'arguar' is not just a joke!" You will see, of course, the intended quasi-homonyms (or sort of 'rhymes') to the original alleged Kipling which I parody here. Quite deliberate, of course:- theorem - woman; 'arguar' - cigar. Yes? My only question really: do I have correct (Latin) grammar here in the inserted word? i.e.: first person singular future indicative passive (= 'IS TO BE ARGUED (SHOWN. DEMONSTRATED etc.)') ?? Of course, it is - obviously - 'lifted' Latin ... into an English aphorism - and being used as if it were an (English) gerundive anyway (which it is not in Latin, of course) - and thus is really only 'dog Latin' obviously. But I'd like to be right on the point of Latin grammar - the correct verbal conjugation. Any informed views or advice here? Thanks - edwardtheconfessor PS: I'm not a real Latin scholar - so keep the grammar simple!! Thanks.
