Even so, it's a legitimate question I was face to face with when I needed to translate Adele's "Hello" into Latin to enter a Cover Song Contest.
The lyrics include:
"And a million miles."
Here's how the Latin works.
A mile is mille passuum (a thousand paces).
A hundred thousand miles is centena milia passuum (a thousand paces times a hundred).
A million miles is decies centena milia passuum (a thousand paces, times a hundred, times ten).
The math makes my brain hurt.
If you would like to support Latin in this international Cover Song Contest, watch the video below, a Latin language version of Adele's "Hello." If you like what you hear, give me an upvote.
