How strange it is that hardly an hundred years ago students routinely read Vergil in its original language and today we scoff at Latin, calling it "dead." Yet this is no sign that Latin has lost any of its potency, but rather that our culture has lost what little it once had.

why do people use "an hundred"? shouldn't it be "a hundred"? an is used before words sounding straight away with a vowel. h is no vowel and certainly does not sound phoneticly like one. i see this a lot. i wonder about it. cheers . . ..
