    Ixnay on the poor Latin grammar

    IN HIS article about movie and other blockbusters (“Why blockbusters are taking over the arts,” Ideas, Oct. 13) Craig Fehrman uses the phrase, “. . . when an emeritus professor at Harvard mentioned it during one of her presentations.” In her case, it’s “emerita.”

    Yes, Latin is a dead language, but when disinterred it deserves accurate expression.
